233 Xuanhua Lu
Think of 233 as C’s low-key cousin. Just as cavernous, but replace the dice and dancefloor with cats, couches and Street Fighter II. Wander in on a random weeknight and you might find locals frying up aubergine on a hot plate and competitive games of darts and pool. With two full bars, refrigerators full of beer and taps in nearly every room, 233 most certainly has what you need for a night out without emptying your wallet. Go for their craft beer on tap, which comes in at 40 to 55RMB a pint.
