The nightlife and pub culture of Darjeeling has it own style. Unlike in big cities, Darjeeling does not have a very lively night life. However, there are some pubs and bars where the locals go to have a drink or two in peace. The western influence can be clearly seen in these places especially with regard to music. Western country music, rock and roll defines the very base of groovy nightlife in Darjeeling. Few popular pubs and bars in the darjeeling are listed below:

  • Joey's Pub

    Joey's pub is face of Darjeeling's nightlife. You would not want to be missing out on the charm of this old British style country pub. If you relish a beer or a drink in the company of nice and warm people, this is the right place for you to be.
    The pub is owned and run by Puran Gongba, a charming man in his middle age who is fondly called Joey by his mates. Mr. Gongba has his own little story. He initially set out to be a musician to earn great name but as fate would have it, Puran ended up running this pub instead.
    If you step into this place, you can often find Joey strumming a guitar or tending at the bar and having chit chat with the visitors. You are sure to meet other travellers like yourself once you go to this pub.
    The pub remains open from 12pm to 10pm (11pm occasionally). Another thing to keep in mind is while visiting the pub is that they do not accept cards.
