Depends what you're after. I'll break it down into 3 key areas for you:-

 

1) Gulou/Houhai (my fave) lots of little chilled out quirky little bars where you can have a good chat amid the hutong setting. Houhai gets a bit mental at night with all the loud music though you can still find a quiet spot to have a good drink away from the crowds.

 

2) Wudaokou - Student area, lots of cheap/fun bars where you can go crazy. Lush/Pyro Pizza have some cool events and the beer is cheap though the area in general is often pretty packed.

 

3) Sanlitun -Avoid like the plague on Friday/Saturday night, though there are in fact some nice little gems of bars (Fubar) to be found amid the messiness. The area is great if you're after a proper dance club with DJs and all that jazz, though the crowd can get a bit undesirable at times.

 

There are of course bars and clubs scattered around the city and if I've missed out anything at all someone please say! My favorite bar in Beijing has to be 24 Sqm on Nanluoguxiang!

I found that the hutong places were really nice. They have that river running and there are a lot of people walking the streets. You can walk along the hutong and stop in a restaurant they also have restaurants with live bands. 

 

That place and if you like shopping malls you could go to Joy City at Xidan. Also, check out the Indigo mall!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
