George's pretty close to Vics, is a very nice place and the cocktails re amazing there
Just take them to some nice-ish bar in SLT, avoid the student clubs/bars. Apothecary comes to mind, or George's. I think the Den is fairly popular with the older crowd too.
Oh, and fuck Houhai. You don't want to take them there, it's full of shit bars and tourists. Only thing that place is good for is grabbing some street beers and taking the boats for a spin.
The Den is a nice place to hang out and have drinks for a bit, also George's i love teh environment there & well if u like the roof tops u might check Kokomo during teh week is totally fine, on teh weekends is more like a club
I was going to recommend Q Bar, but apparently service and drink quality is all but non-existent since George Zhou left. I haven't been there since he booked to start his own bar (the "George's" previously mentioned, actually), but I've heard bad things. Try at your own risk.
Qbar is more for young ppl,no? so nice place,miss the little pillows there
we go together next time yj
bars for older folks? that i would not know but for anyone not into the bar kiddie scene i would suggest a great dinner and boat ride in hou hai. a little pricey and crowded but those are fun.
