Personally, I think the best local bars are the ones that have live music in them. Local music artists perform in the evenings as people are looking for an after dinner hangout. From Himalayan Coffee, you can keep walking down inside LiuLiu City streets and there are a couple of options right in that alley.
KTV is also a popular thing! Karaoke is a big deal here as people like to enjoy renting out a private singing room with friends and stay late into the night—even as late as 3 or 4 in the morning! The rooms are furnished with comfy couches, disco lights, beer and wine, and an endless selection of English, Chinese, and Tibetan songs! There are many KTV options in Kangding!
