Coco Park: A Night Out in Shenzhen


The Where to Party Shenzhen Travel Guide is part of The Year of the Monkey Trip Report which covers the following places:

Though it was difficult, I managed to get out of the St. Regis tub and head out for a night on the town. Hong Kong has Lan Kwai Fong. Shenzhen has Coco Park, a bar district with something for everyone. Like Guangzhou and Shanghai, there are people out every night of the week, leading me to wonder if anyone goes to work.

The Area 

Coco Park is in an upscale area of Shenzhen, home to the tallest building in Shenzhen, the Ping An Finance Centre.

Someone has to be working to afford this, right?

The Bars 

Coco Park is a city block of bar after bar with a few clubs sprinkled in.

In the US, people would look at you funny if you were snacking on fruit bowls, chicken wings, and peanuts in the middle of a dance club. In China, it is very normal to eat and drink before, during, and after partying.

A much better option is street noodles and fried rice
