Cannon is a bar in the Galle Dutch Hospital. Great location, OK food and drink.
The Loft Lounge and Cloud Cafe are Colombo Courtyard's two-in-one bar combo. The former is indoors while the latter is on the rooftop. As far as cocktails go, CC fares quite well, but the food leaves…
A great spot for drinks and hangs in Hiri, food could definitely improve though
The aptly-named Flamingo House is the newest—and probably funkiest— addition to Colombo’s restaurant repertoire. The food is inconsistent but interesting, but the excellent cocktails and crazy…
7 Degrees North at Cinnamon Lakeside is actually one of the older bars in town now. Their location by the Beira still makes for a great place to chill, and we like the fact…
Curve, at Park Street Mews, is a tapas bar that's been around for a couple of years. While the purple-white theme is looking a bit old now, their tapas and drinks are still pretty good.
Chanvel Restaurant is one of the oldest members in Colombo's dodgy bar scene.
The Long Bar at Water's Edge has lovely location and pretty good food and drinks
The location does wonders for what is otherwise a mediocre bar
Pub Sinhara gets brownie points for its menu and decor, but the cocktails let it down.
The RePubLk has come through steadily since they opened a few years go. The quality of their food and drinks have managed to stay the same, but somehow they aren't as great as they used to be.
Machang Nawala is at Nugegoda now. After the untimely death of their Nawala branch, Machang has claimed a new spot down Stanley Thilakeratne Mawatha.
Breeze Bar at Cinnamon Grand is one of Colombo's most popular poolside bars, and it's a great place to chill with some friends. The food is good, but the drinks are pricier than most other places.
රියල් කටගැස්මක් එක්ක ෂොට් එකක් දාන්න විතරක් නෙවෙයි ඒ ගැම්මටම බඩ කට පුරව…
The New Colonial Hotel is at the high end of dodgy bars. Downstairs is a high-ceilinged bar with bad food but decent drinks and a nice ambiance.
ඇත්තටම යාළුවනේ රසම රස බයිට් එකක් එක්ක පොඩි ෂොට් එකක් දාන්න පැලවත්ත ලැවනියා…
Nice place to chill with some booze, and delicious bites
Affordable (hence usually crowded) place to have a drink in Pitakotte.
Charming place for a beer along the coast, but not best for bites.
A great place to get your booze on out there, with large space and all deciduous Machnag food
One of the Negombo strip’s more popular little bar/restaurants, Serendib is right on the beach and has a regular stream of visitors. It strikes a fine balance between dodgy and nice.
A nice spot to chill with some booze, and delicious fried rice.
Sopranos it seems plays host to a far higher calibre of karaoke than anticipated, and participants seem to take their singing seriously. Certainly there was far less inebriated caterwauling than imagined…
A very modern bistro/bar on top of the Fairway Hotel.
