19 Ritan Bei Lu

Chocolate is clearly a venue that’s aimed at the Russian community, it’s hard to see how anyone can fail to have fun in a club that looks like a cross between Roman Abramovich’s bedroom and the set of a Persian hip-hop video.

Chocolate has live music performances every night and DJs spinning Russian hip-hop and dance tracks, thereby providing some much-needed variety.

Billed as a nightclub first and a restaurant second, the dancefloor in front of the stage is nearly always full with both singles and couples alike; the venue also serves food until closing time and offers a fantastic stage show to accompany your meal: think fireeaters, male and female exotic dancers, unicycles, a cover band belting out Russian (and sometimes English) hits.
