This vid is from a bar in Jiaxing called Lohas. Chinese bars are very loud and would instead be considered a club by Western standards. Here we take a peek at what goes on in a Chinese club.

We talk to some people (subtitles included), make friends, get questioned by a drunk, inspire bartenders to pick each other’s noses, “open sets”, practice “night game”, work on our “vibe”, and a guy’s girlfriend bites his nipple. Enjoy!

Useful Mandarin:
If you’re planning your own adventure at a Chinese club, the below phrases may be useful. Listen for them in the vid.

  1. 吧台 (bā tái) the bar (as opposed to a table)
  2. 位置 (wèi zhì) a seat/a reservation/a table
  3. 拍 (pāi) to film
  4. 拍电影(pāi diàn yíng) to film a movie
  5. 哇靠 (wā kào) hell!
  6. 欢迎光临 (huān yíng guāng lín) welcome
  7. 你们叫什么名字?(nǐ mén jiào shén me míng zi) what are your names?
  8. 回家 (húi jiā) go home


Want to travel in China but you don't have the time or money? Why not get a job teaching English in China. You don't need to speak Chinese and you don't need teaching experience. For a limited time, get the first 30 pages of my book Ultimate China Guide: How to Teach English, Travel, Learn Chinese & Find Work in China free to learn exactly how to do it.
