China’s “Comfort Class” | The Bling Dynasty, National Geographic Magazine: Dancer at Armani Club | Shanghai, China

Dancer at Armani Club | Shanghai, China

This China “comfort class” club scene is a mix of young folks, mistresses, and male and female prostitutes. A professional dancer takes the stage and the man in the background mocks her. Bars are a little crazier in the south of China where there is new wealth.  Young people demand nice places to eat and drink. By 2015, the number of Chinese adults under 30 is expected to swell 61%, to 500 million, equivalent to the entire population of the European Union.
