Bhutan Nightlife Guide
Bhutan nightlife is something that is very underrated and under-appreciated about the country. Although locals certainly enjoy the nightclubs and pubs, it is yet to be a phenomenon with the tourists. But nightlife in Bhutan has every bit of glitz and glamor to qualify for a great traveler’s haunt. Most of the nightlife scene is in and around the capital Thimphu. They have good drinks, great music, and an excellent ambiance.
Here are some of the best nightlife places in Bhutan.
1. Mojo Park
Mojo Park is the best that nightlife in Thimphu, Bhutan has to offer. Their live music scene is way more than what you expect in any small local bar. There is live music everyday of the week. On Mondays there is Blues, on Wednesdays, there are acoustic acts and Thursdays are kept for solo performances. The weekends are meant for a blast with known bands, except Sunday night, which is all about young, upcoming and original artists. These gigs are complemented with drinks unique to Bhutan, like the beer Druklager or the whiskey called K5.
Vivacity does true justice to the word ‘nightclub.’ It is all about loud music and lots of energy. The youth of Thimphu gather here to spend the night dancing under the neon lights to whatever music the DJ plays for the night. Hip-hop, reggae, rap, rock n’ roll, mashups – everything works as long as they have the beat. Although it is mostly a place for youngsters to socialize, it sees a lot of people from all walks of life and all ages. So as long as you enjoy the environment, be a sport and enjoy the best nightlife in Bhutan.
3. Tashi Tagay Drayang
Drayangs are unique places, where fun meets culture. Bhutanese singers and dancers perform local folk and pop culture music pieces. Requests for songs are accepted in exchange for tips. Drinks and food are served readily on the table as you sway your head to your favorite song. Tashi Tagay Drayang is one of the best venues for a relaxed evening.
4. The Weekend Market of Thimphu
The weekend market stalls at the north of Changlimithang Stadium is not exactly where you go shopping. But it is one of the most vibrant night markets in Bhutan that one can find. The market starts on Friday afternoon and is open till Sunday late night – thus called the ‘weekend’ market. If someone wants to catch a glimpse of the real everyday life of Bhutan, they should come to this market and see the urban and rural crowd mingling into one. The market is mostly for the week’s groceries and food items. But at the northern end, there is a collection of stalls for local handicrafts, hand-woven textiles, small trinkets, and souvenirs, keeping in mind the tourists. They are not very elaborate, but authentic and quaint.
5. Khuju Luyang
Moving a little bit away from drinking and dancing, Khuju Luyang in Gongphel Lam area of Thimphu is a stage for performing arts. Hour-long cultural shows on Bhutan’s history, religion, tradition, and heritage are told through folk dance and live music. This is not the most common thing to do at night, but the grandeur of the show and the vivid performances are totally worth it. Especially if someone has missed out on catching the festivals like Tsechus, they can make it up with this show.
