A small commercial street south of the Bell Tower and just north of the city walls, Nandajie is the best that you'll get from a dire nightlife situation in Xi'an. If you've already been to Defu Xiang, which has more options a few streets over, then there are a handful of decent bars tucked in between the hotels and hostels of this small area. You'll not be overwhelmed by options, but a few choices (Park Qin for friendly vibes and cheap drinks, Belgian Bar for better beer selection and higher prices) rise above the rest. If you're in Xi'an, you aren't here for a mind-blowing party anyway, so enjoy a chance to converse over a few beers.
