You may find a resemblance to high-end decadent night life in the top hotels in town and clubs and homes of international businesses and representations.
If you are looking for a cold beer - none of that in the streets or local businesses - my best bet are the coffe bars, bars, and restaurants of the top hotels.
Dress Code: A business jacket over a nice shirt, ok shoes will do (male).
It's a good lounge restaurent. Foods are a bit expensive. Good atmosphere. Posh people, young Bengalis, party lover. Weekend night is good time for visiting. They organize party ones in a month. Starts at 6 pm till 3 AM. Choose your mocktail from a number of options. But NO ALCOHOL available. Try it!
Dress Code: Not specific, but its better not to wear shorts. Who cares buddy! dress wild..lol
There isn't much night activity in Bangladeshi villages outside festival times.
Bring a book, torch, postcards and other self-entertainment things unless you want to hit the sack at 9 pm.
Schools and religious institutions with boarding pupils and students organise devotional songs and music as the end-of-the day program, and this can be very, very beautiful and a moving experience, not to be missed.
When night falls the remaining street peddlers set themselves up with kerosene lamps. The peanut sellers' portable stalls become places of snacks and light conversations - easy to mingle and you will help draw more cutomers. Your presence is much appreciated. And the nuts are good, too!
Dress Code: Anything modest goes. But it's definitely after hours and longyi time.
As a nightlife spot it's a bit odd, depending on your definition.
I found it very, very interesting to visit the semi-indoor markets (fish, spices, vegetables, fruits, meat, garments, you name it) in the Shantinagar area after darkness has fallen outside. Here the freshest ingredients for today's dinner og tomorrow's breakfast are purchased.
This is a good place to buy your mosquito net, too.
Just take in the atmosphere and be prepared for a bit of stir; this ain't a tourist spot.
The nightlife in Dhaka is limited due to it being a muslim country. You usually can't buy alcohol at restaurants, but you can buy elsewhere and bring it with you. Then they will take your bottles and serve you like if you should have bought it from them....rather funny actually.
There's not much in the way of entertainment in Bangladesh, although with satellite TV you can now watch Manchester United or Real Madrid in the middle of the night. This is a Moslem country, and few bars exist apart from those in the five-star international hotels. The real entertainment can be found in the streets, watching the people, the rickshaws, the baby taxis - but don't go too close to the snakes!
Very little nightlife in Bangladesh.
Best bet is to find resident who is member of one of the many International clubs.
Dutch Club, Bhaga (British) Club.
(Dutch club) As usual the Dutch are very welcoming, happy folk
Dress Code: Casual (Very)
A noisy little friend of our nights in Bangladesh... a gecko !
They are peaceful and useful animals because they eat insects (and mosquitos!)...
...a misty morning in Nasirnagar...
I wish you could hear the sounds of the forest..........
Dress Code: A long sleeves shirt is very recommended for the dusk against moquitoes...
Filming the reading circle again... with Ripon (audio), Helal (lighting) and Talat from Save the Children (the interviewer).
After a bad experience with the Sheraton last time this place is excellent. Great location...more
