Rum Doodle

The ceiling of Rum Doodle is covered with foot-shaped notes, left there by every Mt Everest summiteer who has visited the bar. One of the most iconic bars in the city and a real hub for the mountaineers since the 70s. Come for a drink and stay for the home-style food and the atmosphere of camaraderie.

Bars & Nightlife

Nightlife in Kathmandu revolves mainly around the area of Thamel, where backpackers and hip locals can be seen frequenting the trendiest bars and nightclubs in the city, some of which have live music. Though music in public places is forbidden after 10pm, many of these places manage to keep it going until later. More upscale establishments can be found in big hotels. Additionally, cultural centres and some high-end restaurants offer traditional dance shows.
