Jellyfish- the most famous club you should pay a visit while interning in Chengdu.

This is perhaps the most famous club in Chengdu. It’s the premier place for foreign men and Chinese women to meet and dance. This is most certainly a club, not only a bar with loud dance and music. It will usually be busy most nights throughout the week with the weekend being the busiest.

Shamrock- one of the best option for you to eat and drink “quietly”.

Shamrock is an Irish pub with a sports bar feeling. It’s located very close to American consulate Chengdu. It has pool tables, a Western menu and occasional live band. During the weekdays it normally attracts a regular, expat crowd, but on the weekends, can attract a pleasant mix of newcomers and established regulars.

Although it has a reputation for being a bar for the more “settled-down” crowd, it’s still a nice place to go to meet new people and have interesting conversations during your internship in Chengdu.

Machu Picchu-a small and quiet place to Chat with friends meet from the internship.
