Places to visit in Colombo at Night – The Night Own in Sri Lanka

Looking to hit it up after dark in Sri Lanka's metropolis of Colombo ? Paint the town red by partying at the following bars, casinos and hotels which are some of the hottest in Colombo.


Barefoot Garden Café

For quirky interiors which offer great ambience, go to Barefoot Garden Café.

On any night you are likely to find a global mix of clientele patronising this place. Enjoy good conversation, delicious food, lip-smacking cocktails and pitchers of beer while you and your mates argue over the most likely answer to the last announced question of the pub quiz that runs on certain nights of the week. 🍸🍾

This spot offers a more laid out vibe that the others on the list, and is a great way to have an exciting yet markedly more relaxing night out.

If you want more information on things to do in Colombo both during the day and the night, browse through blog posts such as those on the My Entertainment Hub website or similar others.

Do your research on all that the city has to offer before you make your journey to Sri Lanka, so that you will be able to make the most of your time in the country once you're here!


Sky Lounge

This classy rooftop bar can be found inside one of Sri Lanka's five-star hotels.

Situated a short hop, skip and jump away from both the World Trade Centre and the Dutch Hospital Shopping Complex in Colombo 1, this is a great place to while the night away with dazzling cocktails and scrumptious finger foods.

While not the cheapest bar in town, the Sky Lounge does run happy hour deals on most days around six in the evening.

It's, therefore, a great spot to start a night out. Get here in time for happy hour and score on BOGOF (Buy One, Get One Free) cocktails to sip on as the sun sets right before your eyes; then head on out to one of the other many bars or nightclubs that can be found in Colombo.


Loft Lounge

This indoor lounge resides inside a boutique hotel, and, is arguably one of the most popular players on the scene at this time.

Night life in Colombo has bloomed in recent years following the end of the civil war here around eight years ago, and the Loft Lounge is one of the strongest contenders in the city.

It has artsy sort of vibe going on inside, and is quite cosy, offering patrons a mix of sofas and chairs to get comfortable on.

Their cocktails are quite good, and they too offer happy hour deals almost daily. If you would prefer to get some fresh air, just ask the servers to help your relocate to the hotel's rooftop bar, called Cloud Café.

Here you can enjoy the same food and beverages, minus the air conditioning but with great views of the sky and the city below. 🍷🥃

There's also the added bonus of being able to order a round of shisha out here to share with friends.


Colombo's Casinos

Those of you in the country's commercial capital of Sri Lanka who feel blessed by lady luck will be glad to discover that the city has not one, but two main casinos that are used to welcoming international clientele.

These are the Bellagio Casino and Bally's Casino. The former is situated in Colombo 3 while the latter is located in Colombo 10. They offer a variety of table games between them.

These include roulette, blackjack, baccarat and variety of poker games such as Texas Holdem, Three Card Poker and other Asian versions of the game, as well as slot machines for patrons to try their luck at. 🎰🎲
