Though hopping beats and a beautiful crowd keep Vics feeling young-and-hip, this is in fact the Grand Dame of Beijing’s clubbing scene–Vics kicked off the Workers’ Stadium club complex (now the hottest in the city) over a decade ago, and its sexy two-story space and star-studded lineup of international DJs still make it the one to beat for competitors. After recent renovations, the expanded hip-hop floor offers ample space to get your groove on, while the sultry techno area compensates for a smaller dance floor with sexy opium den lounge vibes and plenty of intimate nooks.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
This is one of the few places in Beijing where you can really go glam-tastic with your outfit, so break out something sassy and sparkly.
GO HERE WITH
A fashionable mix of 20-something local and expat cool things.
WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s fun, flirty, and fabulous. Great spot for going wild with the girls, especially if they’ve got a class act spinning.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Quieter weeknights can have a seedy “meat market” vibe.
GOOD TO KNOW
Vics’ wildly popular Wednesday Ladies Night is an institution on the Beijing clubbing scene–it’s worth checking out if you’ve got the dancing bug. If you want to snag a table on weekends and haven’t booked bottle service, get there before 10:00pm.
