Afghanistan Nightlife

  • Party Time - Kabul Style

    Kabul does have a developing western style social scene. Bars serving alcohol, mainly frequented by expats and NGO's are popular, although you are unlikely to meet many of the locals in them. Most of them accept US Dollars as the main currency, and expect to pay about 5 bucks for a bottle of beer.There also a number of decent eateries dotted around...

  • Nightlife?!

    Unless you are a elite military unit or have a death wish, I wouldn't do it. I did go out a couple times and regretted it every time. On top of that I was usually pretty drunk. Too many things could happen and help is a long ways away. I would suggest :Camoflauge UniformFlack vestBalistic HelmetA loaded gun (travelers choice)

  • Nightlife consider none....

    Nightlife consider none. After the fifth prayer ( 'Isha ) together with them at the nearest Mosque. Move slowly along the Kabul main road,see a lot of them sitting in the circle and having a* hoogah* with small glass of * chai * (tea).

  • Oh what?

    Just forget about this... there're a few places in Kabul that has some "nightlife", but I don't think it's really wise to go. The Mustafa Hotel organize BBQ on the roof occasionally, check the "places to stay" section of Kabul for more information please.

  • Contraband beer

    This is as close as Kabul gets to nightlife. If you've come from Pakistan the good news is it's easy to get a beer in Kabul. Just head for the Mustafa and hang out with the NGOs, soldiers and even a CIA guy. The beer's import. When I was there August 03 drinks were $3 but there was a happy hour early in the evening where they were $2. The food is...

  • Afghan nightlife? - just kidding

    Don't go to strictly Islamic countries and expect a lot of nightlife.The only exception would be the Eid-ul-Fitr, the party ending the Ramadan, but all the celebrations are kept within the family. Try to make some friends among the locals and you'll be in for a great treat.

  • Traditional afghan music

    On my way to the central Ghowr province, coming from Herat, I spent the night near the hotspring of Obey. I was invited at a party by local people.

  • Well, there was some nightlife...

    The Irish Bar opened up about 1 April or so in Kabul, but unfortunately, closed. Sounds like it just got to be too big of a possible target. It's like they say, "If you have Guiness, they will come..." So, the Irish Bar is closed for now. You can see pics of it by going to this URL: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/2978513.stm

  • Nothing but Quietness

    If you cannot fall in sleep until the next morning, or if you feel painful without night clubs or sensational movies, you¡¯d better stay far away from Kabul. The usual dress for woman is called Burka, which covers woman form head to toe. As for man, it is called Turban, which is similar to that in Saudi Arabia and other muslim countries.

  • Music

    There isnt much nightlife in Afghanistan...Music is now again allowed so perhaps you can meet some local musician and listen to music. Dont expect to find disco and dancing, they all dissapeared in 1992.
