Yangshuo Nightlife: Bars, Pubs and Clubs in Yangshuo

In addition to these bars, all the places in the Yangshuo Restaurants section of this guide also double as drinking dens.

Bar 98
Bar 98, Yangshuo The Australian-run Bar 98 enjoys a nice location on a quieter lane parallel to West Street.
The ample outdoor seating is right above a small canal, which makes for a very pleasant view but can produce a very unpleasant smell. Bar 98 has a free pool table (there’s a pool comp on Friday nights) and wireless internet. Drinks are standard Yangshuo prices at around ¥20-25 for cocktails and a little cheaper for bottled beer. On the food menu are hearty western breakfasts (around ¥30) and gourmet meat pies, along with the standard assortment of burgers and pastas. A fun vibe, good music and friendly clientele make Bar 98 a good place to drink.

MC Blues Bar
MC Blues Bar, Yangshuo A mainstay of the Yangshuo scene, MC Blues Bar offers cheap, high-quality drinks and a fine variety of music.
The upstairs lounge is a nice place to chill while the tables downstairs are a little uncomfortable. The subdued lighting and pleasing decoration make it somewhat more atmospheric than many Yangshuo bars. Cocktails are around ¥25 while beer is cheaper. MC Blues Bar also distinguishes itself by offering a small selection of Mexican food.

Buffalo Bar
Buffalo Bar has a great pool table, excellent meat pies (¥28) and a few Australia beers.
For added interest there is a pool comp on Wednesday nights and a quiz night on Thurdays. A fairly standard Yangshuo menu has burgers and pizzas at ¥30 and pastas and steaks for a little more, while Liquan beer starts at ¥10, VB is ¥25, Coopers is ¥30 and cocktails are ¥25-30. Buffalo Bar also has a small selection of Australian red wines. In terms of atmosphere, the bar can feel a little claustrophobic and it’s probably better to come with good company rather than to meet people.
