Luoyang is not the most exciting of places for those after a bit of light relief, but this is not such a problem since most travelers here are only coming for the sights and historical ambience.
Nightlife is limited and, apart from spending your time drinking in pleasant restaurants about town, most of the clubs and pubs are situated in the hotels.
Some of the outdoor restaurants near to the railway station, on Jinguyuan Lu, serve a nice, and cheap, draught beer.
The Chinese do somehow manage to enjoy themselves here though, satisfied by their versions of ultra-modern entertainment (some of which are blasphemously housed in a few of the ancient constructions).
The Eight Immortals Palace on Luolong Lu is another replica of Disneyland (making use of the famous Chinese mythology featuring eight immortals), which applies modern laser and sound facilities to make entrants feel as if they were contemporaries of the immortals.
The Laser shooting city on Shachang Xilu is another interesting place, a simulated battle field, like the real thing excepting that your enemy are either strangers or friends and that you use a laser rifle in place of a real one.
