Entertainment in Wuhan

Wuhan nightlife is very attractive. Feel free to join locals in a glamorous night world. It is said that Beijing has the most bars in China; Shanghai has the most graceful bars in China, and Wuhan, the most unique bars in China. After work, people invite friends to all sorts of bars and pubs throughout the city to spend their evening leisure time. There are a few western style bars spread across Wuhan. One of the busiest areas of the city is Hankou. Around the Wuhan University (Wuhan Da Xue) is a good area to find some smaller and more relaxed places to have a drink. The streets around Ba Lu are especially good and the Festival Bar is currently popular with foreign students in the city. A similar place is the Sunshine Bar near the Shangri La hotel. This place has live music and an entertaining 'floor show'. The Primeval Forest and the long established Jo Jos are also popular hangouts. Many of the hotels have decent bars too.
