Ultimate Guide To Beijing KTV’s & Hostess Bars
Thanks for checking out this ultimate guide to Beijing KTV’s & hostess bars. A lot of travelers come to Asia not knowing what these bars are like so we thought we should give you some tips.
At KTV’s and hostess bars you are usually just paying for a girls company and attention, not for sex. Our Beijing sex guide has better info if you are looking for prostitutes, erotic massage, and getting laid.
That is just generally speaking, sex has happened in a karaoke room before but it shouldn’t be counted on. You can possibly get her number to meet up after work, but don’t count on it.
Many foreign men think karaoke is pretty lame, but some guys really enjoy it. By the time you finish reading this guide you should have a much better understanding of what they are like.
After we give you a general break down we will then mention some of the best karaoke bars in the city. Plus we will talk about the best dating site in China if you don’t feel like paying to sing and hold hands with a girl.
What Are Asian KTV’s?
Asian KTV’s have been talked about on this site before but will cover them again here. Basically they are a spot where guys can go to drink and hang out with some sexy hostesses who are sometimes prostitutes.
Their business model is pretty simple, charge you for a room, charge you for the girls, and charge you for the drinks and food. The more drinks the girls get you to buy the more commission they get.
Depending on which you visit they might feel really scummy and they don’t try to hide the fact they are attempting to get every penny you have in your pocket before you leave. Others are more professional, but either way their goal is to get you wasted so you keep indulging in more.
The girls will flirt with you and treat you like a big shot so you feel like the star of the show. They will shower you with attention because most guys aren’t used to having a pretty 20 something smiling at them.
At the end of the day it is all an illusion. They don’t really like you and you aren’t going to have sex in a Beijing KTV. Well you might, but it is very unlikely.
Some flirting and making out can probably done with most hostesses, a blowjob is even possible at times, but sex is highly unlikely. There will often be a waiter and DJ in the room with you supplying the drinks and setting up the music, the hostesses won’t be having sex in front of them.
You can ask about getting their number for later on or paying an exit fee so they can leave with you, but again don’t count on it. Pretty much you sit there, drink, and flirt with the girls and listen to them sing songs.
At least there are happy ending massage spas nearby if you get blue balled.
The Prices At Hostess Bars
You need to ask for a menu and find out how everything works when you arrive. Hostess bars around the world are notorious for finding ways to get extra money out of customers, sometimes ripping them off.
You usually will pay for a room to start things off and that should cost somewhere around 500rmb. Then you will need to pay for the hostess bar girls you want to sit with you as well.
In some karaoke bars all of the hostesses will cost the same, other times they might have tiers. Again just ask the mamasan (manager) how much everything is and how long you get in the room or with the girls for the price you are paying.
In China things work a little different and you often have to pay an additional fee for the DJ, the waiter, and even the mamasan. In most countries all of that stuff is included in the room charge but not here.
So while they say the room charge is 500rmb or there about after you add in everything else it is closer to 1000. Then if you add in a couple girls at 300-500 each, plus more money for drinks and food the prices just keep going up and up in Beijing KTV’s.
You should ask to find out if they have any alcohol promos while you are there like cheaper bottles instead of beers. Also confirm if hostess drinks cost more than guys drinks. The food is generally very overpriced so maybe eat before you go.
Even at the more honest and up front places they nickel and dime you to death. Many guys have a good time flirting with the girls then get hit with a really big bill that is far more than they expected and wonder what it is they really just paid for.
It might be better to meet girls outside of KTV’s which isn’t hard in this city.
