India Nightlife

  • CLUBS & DANCING

    Goa Nightlife

    UPDATE YEAR 2007: Voted BEST Night Club in India! After hearing about the Club Cubana on VT, being approached by flyer-clutching youngsters on the beach, and being asked by every second taxi-driver "Party tonight, girls?" we semi-reluctantly decided to reserve our Wednesday evening for the Ladies Night at Club Cubana, the "Night Club in the...

    Hyderabad Nightlife

    In spite of its growing industry and ever growing professionals, the nightlife in Hyderabad is not like Mumbai or Bangalore. You will not come across very many college going people as part of the Nightlife in Hyderabad . Most of the crowds you will come across is that of professionals. Pubs and Lounges are in-things in Hyderabad. However most of...

  • FIRE 'N' ICE (very popular)

    Mumbai Nightlife

    Cool nightspot or phat as it has been described. Lots of foreign booze available. Lots of Bollywood wannabees and phony models running around, but that is what makes it fun. Once was enough, but it was a lot of fun, reminded me of the 80's in NY, (just a little) Trendy / well dressed - black always works

  • Sahara

    Delhi Nightlife

    Most of the pubs/ bars (whats the differece?) in Delhi close by midnight. There are some Discotheques in 5* hotels which charge an entrance. During weekdays these turn out to be quite empty. A new Disc has come up at Sahara Restaurant Complex in Vasant Kunj. And I think Sahara is the by far the most crowded. I dont think there are any legal...

  • Catch a Flick.

    At night Indians watch Movies. And its fun to join 'em. There is nothing like sitting down watching one or two movies, full of gawdy Jewellery, skiiny men acting tough, Buxom women who cry, smile and sing in one scene, followed by a guy who is angry, sorry singing and then getting shot . The movies are always in Hindi, or Maharastran or anyother...

  • STAG

    Don't plan to hang out at certain clubs if you are with the guys. Note that there are a number of popular clubs that don't accept a group of guys into the clubs. Yes, couples only. Now, when you are ready to hang out and meet some beautiful women ... this can be discouraging. When this happened, I was with a Chinese friend (from Singapore), an...

  • Lose the regular "nightlife" rat race!

    THE BEST nightlife is found in the rural Kerala countryside sitting out in the front yard ("muttam") or on a hammock tied between two coconut trees (is there any other type of tree??!!), with the lights turned down low, looking up at the wondrous equatorial sky filled with stars that you cannot see elsewhere, hearing the birds, insects and all the...

  • Nightlife ...wrong country!

    Nightlife? This is a concept India still have to witness. In Kashmir we where even asked to get back to our houseboat at 20.00 hours …well it was good for a laugh. In Goa I was told that the police had clamped down beating tourist that tried to party. I just bring you a photo to express my view on the missing nightlife

  • Kathakali

    This is an ancient colourful performing art. This is a 'must do' if you are in Kerala. Go an hour before the show to watch the transformation of the artists while doing their make-up. The show then consits of 2 parts. The first part gives a background of kathakali and also explain many of the movements and expressions used. The second part is a...

  • the quiet nightlife and night ceremonies

    In most areas we were in, Alchol was not allowed, particuarlly amirstar, and Pushkar and Haridwar. The towns become quiet places, no night clubs in the pilgrimage towns. I was there in Januray it was cold and it got dark most of the time we went to bed around 8pm or 9 mostly because it was warm and in bed and there wasnt a lot to see after the...

  • nightlife?

    There is virtually no nightlife in India. The big cities have a few bars which only come alive during the weekend and only open until 1am. Outside the big cities you'll be hard pressed to find even a decent beer.

    My first night in India...(the naive person that I am)...my buddies and I decided to have some drinks. We asked around our hotel, and they suggested couple of "bars"...and thats what they were. Bars with just older men. They all looked at me weird, and I felt uncomfortable, even sitting with my male buddies. In general, I didn't see many women out...

  • Nightlife in India

    In India the nightlife is of a different sort, for most of Indians nightlife means going out for Dinner, catching up a recent bollywood moivie or just a walk around the nearby market eating up the favourite dessert. But the nightlife in India is peppy too, mostly in big metropoitan cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, New Delhi, Goa .. Most of the 5 star...

  • a night at the movies

    It is in every guide book, I know, but it is still an amazing experience that is not spoiled by tourism (that night we were the only foreigners among several hundreds of locals).I cannot say we understood completely the movie, although the argument seemed pretty simple, let alone the dialogues (in hindi), but the show was so much on this side of...

  • nightclubs

    ok, it has been 12 months since i was in delhi so my memory is not so sharp, but the main thing to remember is that everything is usually closed by 1am, so no late night partys etc. if you want something more exciting than a 5 star bar, then ask any of your hotel staff to write down the name and location for some clubs/bars. these are worth the...

  • Getting Sleep in Varanasi is Difficult.

    The Dormitory of Shanti Guest house is open to the air. Punters and sheltered from the rain by a corrugated Iron Roof and from the Ferocious Monkeys by prison like bars as walls. So the senses are bombarded quite incredibly. Sleep is hard to get.Marnikarnika Ghat is the burning Ghat. the most auspicious place to be cremated in all of India. So 24...

  • Kingfisher Beer.

    I thought I'd throw in a few ratings of Kingfisher beer:Jason ( East Boston, Massachusetts ) overall: 3.3Pale yellowish golden clear brew with a decent white lace.Light metallic aroma, with a clean hop and grain in the back. Light to moderate body with a lower than normal carbonation for a lager. Oily hop flavour hits first then some grainy malt,...

  • A good place for a late night drink

    The bar at the Hotel Kalinga , the Bar Saaki was a great place to sip a Kingfisher beer after you travels. The bar was a bit dark but was not seedy as some Indian bars can be. Because of its location just 100m from the train station, lots of travelers come here to have a beer before they set off on late night trains. The bar is just inside to the...

  • The "blue waves" of Goa

    In Palolem Beach, south of Goa, you can see a marvellous phenomenon at night. If you stare at the waves in the beach, you can see that they shine in blue-greenish colors. This is due to some microscopic tiny organism which have fluorescence and make the waters shine. If you swimm at night there you will see your body all covered with tiny points of...

  • The ghats (Varanasi) in the early...

    Well, not in fact a nightlife, but I place it here as you have to get up in the middle of the night in order to take a boat down the river Ganges and see the city wake up in the river banks from the boat.The pilgrims start their day at the river banks steps, washing, praying and preparing tea with the watrs of the Holy River.

  • An Evening of Luxury

    Although we couldn't afford to stay at five-star hotels, treating ourselves to a drink or meal at the same places was within our range. This type of evening would typically be out of our budgets at home, so we made the most of it. Every few days, we would splurge on a special evening at a fancy hotel, being sure to take our time to enjoy and...

  • The Queen's Necklace

    Mumbai has plenty of great spots for late-night meals, drinks and dancing. If you're looking for a recommendation of which bar to hit, check in with VT member Amitu for some great advice.Otherwise, for some less expensive evening entertainment, try Marine Drive at night. A viewing during the day is also recommended, but nighttime reveals the reason...

  • Son-et-Lumiere

    As cheesy as the idea may sound (one of my friends took some convincing before she agreed to go), the son-et-lumiere show at the Western Temples in Khajuraho is incredibly atmospheric and evocative. As an introduction to the group (try to time it before you visit), it whets the appetite to see the temples during daylight. . .and gives some history...

  • Decent Place for a Drink in Bombay

    India is not a country full of great bars however there are a few in Bombay. I ate one night in the Colaba district and found this bar nearby as recommended in my guidebook. It was actually a pretty good bar with lots of friendly locals, loud and good music and videos. It was one of the few bars in all of India where I saw Indian women drinking...

  • Indian TV

    Since there wasn't any real nightlife in Delhi or any other places that I visited, I spent some time zapping. It was actually good fun! What I found more amusing was the soap operas as well as the music video clips. Their soap operas are based on macho men brutalizing women, and they fight back verbally... lots of tears in between. The acting is...

  • The bar at the Hotel Nirulas

    This is the best drinking hole I found in India. Delhi tends to be either the arrival or departure point of those traveling through India. Hence this bar is full of travelers who either about to begin their journey through India or other travelers who are just finishing up their trip and are eager exhange stories about it. Though I did not know it...

    Don't expect that you can go out late in India. Down north there are not many discos or bars. But you can visit the cinema in the evening. It's a real happening. People dance and sing and are really emotional while watching the movie. The movies are actionmovies or very romantic traditional movies.Also fun is going to a concert. You can sit back...
