Not "all foreigners" like bars or pubs, or hang out there.|
Keep in mind, foreigners ARE foreigners in China -- that is, they are outsiders. Most of them come here by themselves. When they arrive here, they don't have friends here, they don't really know anybody here.
What do you think they are going to do...stay at home by themselves, hoping that someone will phone them?
No...they are going to go and try to find other foreigners, other people that they can talk with, other people that they can become friends with.
And...WHERE are they going to find these people? At a bar. Bars/pubs/clubs are just about the only place where A) there are lots of other people and B) it is socially acceptable to start conversations with people that you don't know.
Now, if you look at foreigners who come to China with their families, or who otherwise have a well-established social network, you may find that far fewer of them will go to bars/pubs/clubs.
Let me point out that Chinese people WILL NOT SEE FOREIGNERS WHO ARE STAYING AT HOME!! So you have NO IDEA how many foreigners may stay at home, who don't go to clubs, etc. You ONLY see the ones who DO go out.
So yes, a lot of foreigners will go to bars/pubs/clubs. The main reason being that they need such places for social networking, for meeting other people. But many foreigners also do NOT go to such places.
