    <p>I am sick and tired of winding down my night at 5am. Seriously, I'm not tired, you're not tired, why are we going home? Why do all the good bars close at 2am, and the latest slimey hellholes at 5? Sometimes you have a lot more ex and nowhere left to use it. Fuck's sake. Where's the after-party, yo?</p>

    If you're not ready for the privacy of home at 5am, you may be on drugs and/or homeless/jobless.

    See...no. I both have a job, am not usually that drunk or on drugs (despite the reference), and have a home. And I'm not the only one with a flexible work schedule and irregular sleeping patterns, nor am I the only one who likes being "out" for longer than a standard Friday/Saturday. And it's not like there's any lack of people on drugs, jobless, and homeless. Some of my best friends are all three. I'd very much like a venue beyond restaurants & KTV & random hotel parties.

    father, dont u know its china law?

    Not actually true. It varies by venue & license. There are 24-hour restaurants with liquor licenses, and plenty of after-hours clubs in Shanghai. I also know there are lots of KTV's & such where people can and do go to get their party on after Gongti locks down. I don't see it being a regulatory issue. So WTF? Where do the people who want to stay out go?

    I sometimes walk home around 4am and there are all these Chinese people back from clubbing drinking soup and shit. I walk in and ask them why are you so ugly. They didn't answer

    I tried that a few times. I quit after the ugliest one flung his soup bowl at me and I got scalding eggs on my face and porcelain shrapnel in my hand. Not recommended for beginning trolls.

    Bowing out early is totally rockstar (adj. behavior of actual rockstars

    On some nights. On other nights, you trash your hotel room. We all have those nights.

    I dont know if there is any China's law, but even if there is, obviously not everyone is following, so why the bars?

    However, one explanation I can think of, is that the capital is more used to the peace and tranquility after 2am ... I would, anyway ... :)

    Just noticed I did something the spammer would do if he had balls

    Cheng ... you did not mean that literally, did you?

    It might be that I'm too old to rock, but I just can't party that late in Beijing. I need a 24-hour greasy spoon diner at the end of the night.

    Erm...Ok, so, like, Monday I was totally AT PPG+Sensation, those were the places that inspired me to ask this question. Just thought I'd lay that out there. They tend to suck nards.
