    ClubsMany discos that cater mainly to Chinese have table minimums. That is, each table has a different minimum purchase to sit there and you must purchase at least that much as soon as you sit down. They won't trust that you will eventually purchase enough over the course of the evening. Some even have the price of the table on a tent card sitting on the table. You can try and get around this sales tactic by saying you want to just have a look around (wo yao xian kan kan) and hope that they forget about you.

    The Box (BOX绯栨灉閰掑惂), 82 Xidazhi Jie (瑗垮ぇ鐩磋82鍙?. Former expat hangout of Harbin.

Also, at 11PM you can buy a bottle of Vodka for 楼10, but it is devil water from Anhui has made many people go nuts and dance on the pole for hours. During the week it is full of Chinese.

    CoCo Club, Changjiang Street and Yushan Street intersection (闀挎睙璺笌鐜夊北璺氦姹囧). Newly opened flashy disco. Packed on weekends.

Pushy bartenders who charge you 50 Yuan to sit at the bar or 200 to sit at a table. Better to be avoided unless you can speak Chinese or are with a group of Chinese people. The staff can go from Pushy to Assault mode in a blink.

    Jinhao Disco (閲戣豹杩惂), 161 Heping (Lu鍜屽钩璺?61鍙?. One of the oldest discos in Harbin, kind of run-down now, frequent bar fights. As the cab drivers say, "Don't go there, that's where the poor people go."

    Most bars in the city are clustered around the universities and tourist districts. The Development Zone has some bars as well but they are more expensive.

    Heida Bar StreetThe campus of Harbin Institute of Technology (搴滃崕灏忓尯) is surrounded with a number of small and cozy bars. HIT itself has a number of foreign teachers and hundreds of foreign students. Some notable bars here are:

    SKY bar, tian qiao road 107. A bar opened by three Australians, with cheap beer, 10 yuan tequila shots, western food cooked by a professional American chief, great art and music they have also put a half pipe in one of the rooms for skateboarding that's right a half pipe. At the middle portion of Guogeli Dajie (鏋滄垐閲屽ぇ琛? near Children s Park (鍎跨鍏洯) there is a small man made lake that is surrounded by 10 or so small pubs and a fountain. During the warmer months this small square is packed with people out for a night stroll and is really lively. This also seems to be a place for the trendy teens and college age kids to hang out. If you continue walking down Guogeli Dajie there are a few more small bars dotting the street. Great for people watching! For about 楼100 you can order a "beer tower" (鍟ら厭濉攑ijiuta), which is a tall plastic tube with a spigot on the bottom. At the other end of the lake there is a restaurant that resembles TGI Friday's, as besides the name being changed to DJ Friday's almost everything else has been copied. What makes this place really stand out from the real TGI Fridays are the scantily clad Russian dancers.

    Near Heilongjiang University (榛戦緳姹熷ぇ瀛? right across from the main gate are several small bars and pubs to accommodate the huge Korean and Russian student population.

    Teahouses and cafes
