It is a combination of a bar where you can also eat. The atmosphere is great, the drinks are good, the food even better. I go here to have a coffee in the afternoon and read the newspaper. And in the evening for a beer and to listen to the thousands of trevel stories going around by all the bagpackers who kick in. Really nice place to go and have fun.
Between equator expeditions and the cross road with all the tea houses.
Dress Code: No dress code. Well, you have to wear something, that is for sure...:-)
Tungba is a drink, mildly alcoholic that is made from fermentation of millet. It is especially popular with the central and eastern mountain and hills people of Nepal.
It is served in a large glass or wooden cup and with a wooden or metal straw with sieve in the end to keep the drags out. As you drink the drink is replenished by piping hot water served in a jug on the side. As you proceed, the strength of Tungba diminishes. This is a good drin for slow drinkers and those who don't want too much this evening...
About 50-80 rupees for a pint in a place geared toward tourists.
Dress Code: What???
If you go to Chitwan on your trip to Nepal, the best possible night time activity you can do is just sit at a campfire and watch the lovely stars at night. If you are lucky like I was, you might be able to convince your hotel guides to serenade you with Nepalese music. The nights in Chitwan with no electricity are so peaceful and remote.
Due to the security situation, local restaurants and businesses close at around 7:30 pm in order to observe an informal curfew at 8 pm in many hill towns and villages. Everybody wants to be home by 8 pm. After 8 the security forces may interrogate and hold people until certain of their identity and purpose of being out late. They will also have a considerably tighter grip on their guns. Especially for the sake of the locals; restaurant staff and others observe this informal curfew in order not to put them at risk.
And that's a good thing, because Kathmandu is not the place to go for exciting nightlife. Since you will be exhausted from wandering the city (per my recommendation), taking pictures, shopping, eating, and general sightseeing, you will fall into bed every evening not long after dinner. Besides, I don't know of anyone who looks forward to Kathmandu as a destination where they'll be able to party all night. People are usually here to use the city as a base to launch a trek into other parts of the country. (I imagine that there must be somewhere to go but in my time in Katmandu, I never found it. If you do, let me know!)
Since Nepal is relatively a quiet nation after the sun goes down, nightly outdoor activities are a great way to see a different part of Nepal. I always found looking up into the night sky with my Nepali host-family in the Nuwakot District to be pleasurable. Zillions of stars were visible, and the sky was just lit by them. I had never seen so many stars in my life, as the air was so clean and pollution (outside of Kathmandu, and other overgrown towns) is so low. Make sure to try and just take a look up into the night sky, as it is very impressive.
For the most part, Nepal shuts down easily by 9 pm. And outside of Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, and possibly Pokhara, no "night life" exists whatsoever. However, in the "cities" (more like overgrown towns) above some forms of "night life" may exist. In Kathmandu in specific, live music performances have become more popular, with the increase of young tourists. In fact there are some reggae bars now out there to satisfy the "euro trash" customers (sorry, I just found that term riveting). There are also some more "legit" places to hang around at night. The Himalate Cafe, which is very good might I add, does on occasion have some live music performers and may stay open to around 11 pm. If anything, it is just fun to look around Thamel to see if anything is happening at night. Although "nightlife" is on the rise, it still isn?t popular amongst the Nepalese, and even the most popular "nightlife" places close easily by 1 am.
PS: be careful of the "hashish whisperers" on the street, they lurk when the sun goes down.
Dress Code: Nothing, but in general no sleeveless shirst in Nepal
There are plenty of bars and restaurants in Pokhara. Many of the restaurants show films in the evenings for a little light entertainment, though the quality varies a good deal.
Laylas was a favourite with the backpackers (on the main street in Lakeside) and has free pool.
Watch out if you decide to take on any Nepali who challenges you at a game of pool for a beer. They'll probably end up doing a lot more drinking than you will !!
The bar at Namche Bazaar claims to be the highest in the world. True or not, just remember alcohol doesn’t help acclimatisation! Depending on the security situation the bar may close at 7pm when there is a curfew in place (most likely at present) so you will have to drop in early. Take a marker pen with you to immortalise yourself on the bar or wall !! The beer is also expensive.
Doodles (Forty And A Half Thousand Foot) Bar in Thamel, Kathmandu has walls covered in Everest summiteers signatures, including Sir Edmund Hillary's. They will sell you a book if you want to know the whole history of the bar. The summiteers are allowed to eat and drink here for free for life, so they claim. They also do food.
You can spend your night time for shopping on the lively street in Thamel. If it is special festival, you will seethe street crowed with many people and hear singing or dancing by children. Sometimes, children also visit every store ,joke by singing and beg a little money. Most of the store holders always allow this happened and give them some coins. It looks like Nepal Halloween.
In Nepal,there are many nameless restaurant for nepali.At these place,you can eat and drink 'pure' nepali and newari food and drink.
Drink:Chan(Rice beer),Ella(Roxy),Tumba(Tibetan hot beer),Du Cha(Milk tea),etc.
PLEASE visit the Irish Bar when in Kathmandu. The staff are great and if you are lucky enough to visit when the resident band are playing you'll hear some great classic rock music.
(No Guiness though! But hey, this IS Nepal!!)
I am not usually a fan of cultural dancing - they tend to be a bit contrived and dull but this evening was a bit special because it was so pathetically funny. We booked tickets for the show at our hostel and caught a cycle rickshaw to Himachali Cultural Group in Durbar Marg. This was an event in itself - our driver cycled through the back streets of Khatmandu at 100 mph over huge pot holes (asking us to get off every so often) while the rickshaw leaned at a dangerous angle. When we arrived at the cultural centre we were filthy. We were taken to our seats (front row), given some Nepalese delicacys and raksi (very strong alcohol) and awaited the show. The show was great - dancing, folklore, the lot. The funny part - my husband and I were the only people in the audience. Our polite and embarrased clapping got lost in the hall, sounding rather pathetic. The dancers themselves kept laughing. Further more the raksi gave me a terrible stomach and I was ill for the next few days. Very memorable.
