The Culture Alley (Wenhua Xiang)

The bustling Culture Alley in Kunming is a narrow street packed with bars and cafes. Eateries here serve a wide variety of Asian and international cuisines; its proximity to Yunnan University means local students frequent the area and keep it buzzing even after sundown.

Bars & Nightlife

Nightlife in Kunming begins just as the clock strikes nine. There aren't too many bars here, so those dotting the areas around Jinmabiji Square, Kundu and Green Lake tend to get rather busy. For a more subdued evening out, places along Wenlin Street and the Cultural Alley are a better bet. Most bars and clubs are open from 20.00 to 02:00.
