C's bar! Vomit and graffiti on the walls [occasionally blood], sometimes great music, always good times. They do buy-one-get-one free deal on Stella or Leffe draft beer from 7-10pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Solid.
A bit further to the Westside, Cages in Gubei gives away a free token (15 balls) for their batting cages with every cocktail purchased, from 5pm. Tokens are normally 20rmb. For more on Cages, check our feature article.
Lot of happy hours on Fridays, which you can find on our Friday happy hour page.
Like, did you know Perry's gives away free beer at 7.30pm every Friday? It's Tsingtao or Suntory though, and you gotta listen to the hits of Spring Break 2005 on volume level 11.
In Jing'an, Cyclo has a new happy hour with buy-one-get-one on their basil drop cocktails and Saigon beer from 6-7:30pm, every day. Solid. Just around the corner, The Shed does half off all beer, wine, and cocktails from 6-8pm.
Wednesday through Friday, if you buy a drink at Chala, they'll give you a complimentary plate of snacks like veggie omelets, nachos, brushetta. You can do this from 5-7pm and drinks start from 38rmb.
Not many ladies nights on Fridays (never a sign that business is booming, really), but The Spot on Tongren Lu has one starting at 10pm. Ladies get free margaritas until close, and they have cover bands playing Bon Jovi or something throughout the night.
If you've saved enough coin by taking your date to all of these fabulous places, you could seal the deal by splurging at Mr & Mrs Bund and their late night dinner. That's an entree and a dessert for 250rmb -- about as cheap as you're going to get around here. Plus you can get buy-one-get-one on select cocktails and wine bottles. Goes from 11pm-2am, Thursday–Saturdays. Good one.
