Rize

82 Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 7


While Rize doesn't blow you away with it's concept or theme, it is blissfully non-douchey compared to many other nightclubs. You can wear rubber slippers and nobody's likely to smash your head into the bar while asking 'do you know who my father is?'



NOTE: Rize is closed now. RIP.

While Rize doesn't blow you away with it's concept or theme, it is blissfully non-douchey compared to many other nightclubs. You can wear rubber slippers and nobody's likely to smash your head into the bar while asking 'do you know who my father is?'

It's ostensibly a sports bar but Rize actually ends up being more of a nightclub/lounge. As you walk in there's an outdoor seating area with these Corona sponsored wood chairs. This space is notable mostly because you can smoke there.

Inside you couldn't really tell it's a sports bar, there are high chairs and tables so it's really more of a nightclub. Or a coffee-house. The decor is a bit ambiguous, honestly too posh for sports fans who just want an angle on the TV. There are TVs playing cricket or football, but people are usually watching each other. On big game nights, however, you can watch the match without too much distraction. There's a small dance floor and some local DJs set up and play intimate if loud sets.

Rize is right next to Mango Tree and it gets the food from there, so it's not bad. The tandoori bites are good. They have some potent drinks as well. Beware of the bullfrog. Seriously.

Rize, as can be expected, isn't cheap. But the bartenders are friendly and nice.

TIP
