Weekend hang out featuring two rooms with two kinds of music and overall nice layout. The large room is the center of the Shenzhen hip-hop universe with DJ TKO. Now with Pizza and Tacos if you get a late night craving.
Side of the Lushan Hotel, Luohu
(0755) 8234 2565
Hip club that we really liked when it first opened. They were bringing in foreign DJs and making cool drinks like Lychee Martinis. Now it is two crowded and takes at least 20 minutes to get a drink and the hip DJs come less often. The first room is for progressive house music while the back one is for Hip Hop R&B. Busy every night of the week.
The Base Bar

First impressions: New venue inside Coco park so location is convenient but upon first entry it feels a little cold while the DJ is up too high and first impression of the music is so so. Go see for yourself.

This club has a nice fancy look. It gets away from the really high tech LED walls and into a more classy asian style. Finally something that is trying to differentiate itself instead of copy in Shenzhen. It has two levels and some nice VIP boxes. The location is in a good spot for having dinner nearby and then going to party.

These two bars are located in Mall bar streets and provide spaces where you can congregate with your friends for a drink. Outdoor seating is available at both of them so when the weather is good they are great options. The location at Coco Park also has a pool table which is one of the few bars in Futian to have one.
