Mongolia Nightlife

  • Oasis for the thirsty traveller!

    Old Cliffie has had some unusual experiences in his searches for a latenight drink. In Ulaanbaatar he was led down a dark alley where with an effort he hauled open a sliding steel door to be admitted to an even darker courtyard where a single light illuminated a doorbell. A massive Mongolian with a shaven head peered out suspiciously and then...

  • Mongolian craic

    Old Cliffie tends to favour pleasant conversation when he is drinking, and the Dublin pub - "Ulaanbaatar's first Irish pub" – on Seoul Street is a comfortable and homely place to down a couple of Gingghis beers and meet a few locals or foreigners living in Mongolia. One evening when he was there, old Cliffie enjoyed the craic with two teachers from...

  • Pub or beerhall?

    The Grand Khaan Irish pub opened in 2005 and attracts a mixed crowd of Mongolians and expats. A seat at the bar is a good place for people-watching. The place starts to fill up in the early evening as young Mongolians leave work and drop in for a drink. And it takes some time to fill up, since the Grand Khaan is big: more of a beerhall than a pub.

  • Spot star constellations

    If you like to "star gaze" then the Gobi desert is one of the best places in the world to do it as the night sky is usually clear and there's no pollution or lights. I spotted several star constellations and I'm not up on what or where they are in the night sky.

  • Traditional Mongolian music, singing &...

    In the evening after dinner at our ger camp in Harhorin (beside the famous monastery of Erdene Zuu) we watched a musical and contortionist show by the Karakorum Group who played and sung traditional Mongolian songs and music. The songs featured traditional Mongolian instruments and, of course, throat singing. A young, rather too bendy, 12-year old...

  • Atmospheric western pub

    This is one of the places to hang-out at night (or any other time of day for that matter) at. It's a large modern style pub/restaurant that opened in August 2005 and became an instant hit with locals and foreigners alike as it serves some great food and drink. The menu includes mostly western dishes such as salads, soups, pasta, pizza, stews,...

  • Mongolia's only multi-screen cinema

    There are said to be some 27 cinemas operating in Ulaanbaatar of which this is probably the best as it’s the only multi-screen one. It's located on the western side of Freedom Square, 2 blocks north-west of the Sukhbaatar Square. Freedom Square is a bit hap-hazard as its made of reinforced concrete with the metal bars sticking out of the ground...

  • Bars and clubs.

    There is a neverending supply of restaurants, bars, discos, and clubs that have western names, themes, etc. You should have no problem finding what you want if you are a homesick. They are also lots of english speaking expats here too if you have a problem or are looking for some company. Come as you are....

  • Full moon on the Steppe

    I had the great pleasure of watching the full moon rise with the red planet March nearly "touching" it over the hills surrounding the Tsarim Burt Steppe. The sun had just set so it wasn't completely dark. This was sooo nice. I got my camera out of the ger and ventured to take a photo of the scene. A flock of bleating sheep took an interest in this...

  • Disco in the Capital

    Claimed, by our guide, to be UB's hottest new dance bar. Decent music and good atmosphere. Huge, lots of dancing. No stripping (unfortunately). There was a cover, but the guys paid and wouldn't tell me how much. Open til dawn. We went straight from 3 nights camping in the desert and no one looked at us askance, so I can only assume there is no...

  • Mongolian nightclubs

    Beer is cheap by western standards, usually Korean(Cass, hite, etc) and varies in quality. By Mongolian standards beer is very expensive. Be sure to ask for "Huu-ten peeve" That means Cold beer, cause they just might serve it warm otherwise. Outside the city it will be warm. After about 12am-1am the night club will usually have a performance, such...

  • Folklore

    In Ulan Bator it is possible to see and hear the local people sing and dance. Very impressive! You should not miss a performance!

  • Changing rail width

    As you enter/exit the country, the train has to change the width of the whhels distance to adapt to the different rails. They did this at night, taking each wagon inside a warehouse and lifting it for a while. Of course, they wake U up in the middle of the night, so looking at the “change of the guard” is a real nightlife activity, LOL

  • RIVER SOUNDS

    At River Sounds you can hear live music played by one of Mongolia's well-known artists. Afterwards there is an excellent DJ who plays music from around the world. It is a very trendy place. Most Mongolian's take a pride in their appearance and would tend to dress nicely to go to a nightclub. It would be a bit too casual to wear shorts I think but...

  • If you want a wild night out...

    If you want a wild night out in Ulan Bator, hook up with a few local guys and gals. The manager of a club I went to, the Hollywood club, took me out on the town with a few of his mates. The night involved a few gallons of vodka, a few games of snooker, a visit to every dingy dive in town and an hour in the police cells. All in all good fun, but not...
