Nothing beats a bar with a great house band playing your favorite songs; be it joining in with some air guitar to Bon Jovi or Guns’n’Roses, singing your heart out to a Lady Gaga or Beyonce cover, or strutting your moves on the dance floor as the band play Prince or Michael Jackson.
It’s those kinds of memories that can make a night out truly unforgettable. So, where can you find such an experience in Shenzhen? We listed some of the top party music bars in the city.
Hard Rock Cafe Shenzhen
No list of top party music bars would be complete without a mention of the Hard Rock Cafe Shenzhen. The world-famous brand has become synonymous with rock’n’roll, live music, and an unforgettable party. Now with the opening of the Hard Rock Cafe Shenzhen, people in the city can enjoy a night of live music at the iconic restaurant bar.
At Hard Rock Cafe Shenzhen, enjoy an intimate get-together in one of the two private rooms or you can go big and take over the entire second floor for an unforgettable evening, where over 180 guests can be accommodated.
Surrounding the large live music stage, the venue is packed full of rock memorabilia including a velvet suit worn by the King of Rock Elvis Presley, an outfit worn by Michael Jackson, and a guitar signed by The Eagles. If those legends could see the live show that the bar puts on, you suspect they would approve too.
Playing every Tuesday to Sunday from 19:30 till late is the rocking house band from Southeast Asia. Expect a hit-filled playlist that reflects the memorabilia and history of the Hard Rock brand.

Located in a prime location in Seaworld, The Terrace has long been established as one of the go-to places for live music in Shenzhen. The legendary bar has been operating for nearly 15 years and has consistently won “Best Band” and “Best Live Music” awards ever since it opened.
Few live house bands boast the credentials of those that perform at The Terrace. Calling themselves Terrace All Stars (TAS), the lineup includes a vocalist that has won multiple awards at the AWIT awards, another who was a finalist on Pinoy Pop Superstar, and a drummer that has recorded with platinum-certified artists like Gloc-9 and Jay-R.
The Terrace knows how to get people on their feet and dancing. The focus here is not on rock or jazz like at other venues. It’s all about party music. So, if you are looking for pulsating live music and a night to remember, come to join the family at The Terrace.

Xpats Bar & Grill Sea World
Shekou is a great area for the sort of live music that gets a party started. As well as The Terrace, X-Ta-Sea was one of the top places to go for some live music to get the party started. Located in the Ming Hua cruise ship in the heart of Sea World, it’s surprised the boat hadn’t capsized into the water with the amount of bouncing nights of live music that had been had in there. Well, X-Ta-Sea just got even better recently as it has now been taken over and become part of the growing Xpats Restaurant Group.
The Pirate X Band, the newly formed house band at Xpats Bar & Grill, plays six nights per week from 19:00 to 02:00. All the band members are long term legends of the music industry in Shenzhen; Carlos, Wesmon, Jolo, Tata, and Loti. During that time, expect to be taken on a musical journey through classic rock, metal, reggae, hip-hop, and pop from the Sixties all the way through to today. The wide and open stage is the perfect setting for a raucous house band and its not uncommon to see guests up and dancing down the front.
The Xpats team are already making big improvements across the entire bar, including the complete rebuild of the kitchen, a new menu, an ultra-modern stage and dance floor lighting system, and much more. Recently, Mutant Monster played at Xpats Bar & Grill Seaworld and brought their unmistakable brand of Japanese punk rock to Shekou.
