C's is one of Shanghai's most well-know and enduring dive bars, and they've got the toilets to prove it. With graffiti all over the walls, loud music blasting throughout its cavernous rooms, and some of the cheapest drinks in town, C's is a mainstay on the Shanghai underground music scene -- look for weekly electronic nights from independent promoters -- but even if you're not there for the music, it's one of the best places in town to get utterly blitzed.

On the weekends, cultures clash on the dance floors to insanely bad Top 40 Hip hop, and that's a good thing. Never any cover. Check the listings for special electronic music one-offs, which are frequent.
