A few years ago, Colombo was lacking in a variety of nightlife. Recently, however, a rash of nightspots has popped up in a short space of time giving everyone who likes to indulge in such activities, more options.
Although there are several nightclubs and bars catering to young adults, those with live bands (mostly of excellent standard), are very popular with a more mature clientele.
A wide choice of excellent restaurants can be found in Colombo and a few other places, serving a range of cuisines. Don’t forget to try out the street-side joints where you will often find some of the tastiest food. One of the biggest revolutions in Colombo‘s nightlife is the emergence of a Pub Culture, this coupled with Sri Lanka‘s reputation for being a hospitable place, engaging in a pub-crawl is sure to fill your night with great memories and new friends.
