As I know, many shopping center are around your hotel, such as Xinhua Department Store in 2 West Jiefang Street, and you can walk west along the street for about 2 minutes to get there. You can buy the mobile phone there. Walk west for another 2 minutes, you will see another Department Store, where you can buy electronic device.

Hubin Street in the city is the bar street for the local people and you can find many bars there.
Or you can go to Longmen Kezhan on Jinning North Street. I went there once and thought it is very nice and unique.
