Bars and Clubs in Bhutan – The Goings On at Night

The laid back little country located within the Himalaya mountain range has a mild climate and friendly people. However, when it comes to their nightlife it is all about vibrancy and joie de vivre.

1

Mojo Park

The general inclination among the youth of Bhutan is to dance their cares away as night falls. The music varies but the dancers remain equally passionate from Thimphu to Paro to even the outskirts. Mojo Park is located in Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan where there is no indication of it being a laid back country at night. The streets are colourful and well lit, the clubs and pubs are well patronized and each club has its own genre of music as well as opening times. Those who spend the bulk of their time in traditional costumes suddenly come out in the open in more western attire and sip international brands instead of the local brew at Mojo Park.

Club Ecstasy

One of Thimphu's closest and largest neighbours is the area of Paro where one can still find a great Bhutan luxury hotel. Club Ecstasy is located in this district and has some resplendent names in occupation within a short radius of it including the National Museum of Bhutan, COMO Uma Paro and the river Paro Chu. Live bands usually perform here and there are traditional dance performances while the young really let their hair down. The dining options are skewed towards local cuisine as are the beverage options, but a few well known types would also be available. The excitement starts close to midnight and withers down in a short while unlike in other parts of the world. Even if you are not someone who fancies dancing so much, don't be surprised if you do end up spending much of your time on the dance floor as the music is great and the vibe is contagious.

Vivacity

For the reverberating sounds of rock, hip – hop, reggae and rap, this is one of the best addresses in Bhutan. Some internationally acclaimed DJs and artistes have performed at this venue and the young and young at heart who turn up often appreciate everything at Vivacity; from the dance floor to the cozy lounge from where you can enjoy the performers and other patrons dancing while digging in to your own meal and drinks. Whether you are in a group or looking to have some fun on your own, you shouldn't have much of a problem. The locals are friendly and helpful, yet it is always best to keep out of brawls and battles as the young boys can be rowdy at times.

Club Ace

For a stylish evening outside, Club Ace is a top pick. The mirrored dance floor is seen very rarely elsewhere and the most daring dancers with the grooviest moves perform here. Their dazzling twists and turns are reflected through the mirrors and the interior décor leaves nothing to be yearned for. The best part about many of these Bhutanese night clubs and pubs is that the entry fee is very reasonable and in most instances any cover charge is set off against the bill value.
