Compared with those bustling cities in China, the nightlife in Yan'an is much simpler and quieter. To some extent this is due to the influence of the natural conditions of high altitude and the special climate. The widely fluctuating temperature results in cold and harsh weather at night, preventing people from lingering outside. Another reason is the comparative lag of the local economy. Often residents prefer to watch TV in their homes.

However, Yan'an isn't completely devoid of nightlife. As do the local people, you can take a walk after dinner on the streets or in the squares of the urban area. With the recent progress made in economic development, people desire relaxation and recreational activities, so Yan'an has some entertainment places, including bars, clubs, cafes, theaters and so on. Here are the recommended ones:
