Nightlife & the Arts in Macau


Macau Nightlife

Old movies, countless novels, and gossip through the years have portrayed Macau's nightlife as a combustible mix of drugs, wild gambling, violent crime, and ladies of the night. Up until the 1999 handover back to mainland China, this image of Macau was mostly accurate, and did much to drive away tourists. These days you can enjoy live music and cocktails in elegant surroundings at an ever-growing range of hotels and casinos.
