China Box

August 13, 2006

China box waiter

China Box is more of a bar/club than a fully-fledged night club. They do have live music & dancing, and it does feel like a club, but it’s not music focussed and there’s very little space to dance.

This place is popular though, and always crowded. If you turn up early then you can usually get a table, otherwise make sure to reserve a spot in advance.

Baby Face is one of the most popular nightclubs in town, with locations across China. Getting here is not a problem. Mention the name ‘Baby face’ to a taxi driver and they will instantly know.

Baby Face is split into two sections. The first, Dong Gong (or Eastern Paradise), is populated mostly with 30 – 40 year olds and plays disco-style music. The second, Xi Gong (Western Paradise), has a younger population and is a lot busier with R&B/hit music playing.

Backstreet Jazz Bar & Restaurant

August 13, 2006

The Backstreet Jazz Bar is a two storey architecurally impressive glass building set inside a bamboo forest. A lower ‘Jazz’ floor opens out into a small upstairs restaurant area, and the two are joined together, and with the outside world, by a complicated series of stairs, bridges, and sliding doors. The decor is dark, metallic, and subdued, with lots of glass and mirrors. Live jazz-style music is served up every night.

The restaurant ostensibly serves Latin-American styled food, although it borders on the generic American Italian. The prices are high and portions are small. Drinks, although available in a wide array of forms, are equally served in small quantities. Ask for a glass of wine and you’ll think yourself the butt of a joke; drink it fast otherwise the meagre serving will evaporate.

Senses

Senses is a newly opened restaurant specialising in oysters and wine, and aiming at the higher end of the market. Wrapped in red-brick walls, covered in art deco paintings, with three different ‘chill-out’ areas, a wine & chocolate room, and even Hoegaarden on tap, you can expect a very luxurious evening.

The food is provided by Canadian Chef Jackon Qiu, and is of Western style, supplemented with a very wide selection of wines and cocktails. There is a weekend brunch starting at 9am, and a UK DJ on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays (10PM – 2AM).
