Yantai Nightlife

The nightlife of Yantai, a beautiful port city, doesn't have the dazzle of a modern metropolis, but has its own unique glamour. The locals prefer strolling along the beach enjoying the caress from the tender sea breeze. In a sense, this kind of simple nightlife conveys feelings of romance and leisure. If you want to have a good understanding of the citizens of Yantai, go to Haibin (Seashore) Square, as a lot of people go walking there. You could also go to some night markets like the ones near the Zhenhua Shopping Center (in South Avenue, Zhifu District). Usually the night market is bustling with noise and excitement and you can buy various snacks. Additionally, there are some entertainment venues open at night, such as bars, cafes, cinemas and Internet bars. The Internet bars are numerous and can be found in many streets and lanes.


Everyone has his or her own way of relaxing. Some people, especially after a busy day, like relaxing in a bar, sipping wine and listening to melodious light music. In Yantai, however, the bars are not so numerous. Among them, two are recommended. Hereunder are their addresses.
