Entertainment & Nightlife in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has quite a lively nightlife. A part of the Galle Road in Colombo is said to resemble Las Vegas because of the many casinos here. Though gambling is illegal in some South Asian countries and casinos are hard to come by, Sri Lanka boasts quite a few of them. Strange as it seems, these casinos, which are full of life and activity the whole night through, are not allowed to be called casinos. Instead, they are called clubs. Stardust is a famous casino in Colombo, which has over 10 years of history, making it one of the oldest casinos in Sri Lanka. Stardust is also famous for its lucky tables and really good live entertainment.

The Bellagio is another up market casino, modernistic and outfitted with the latest equipment to ensure that your time spent will be an unforgettable experience. Like the other casinos, The Bellagio spares no expense to ensure it has the finest entertainment and food, thus guaranteeing you a great night out.

Sri Lanka has quite a fair number of bars and nightclubs. There are a number of trendy bars that have sprung up in the Fort and Cinnamon Gardens areas of the city. You can dance in style to top domestic DJs at Hilton's ever popular The Blue Elephant, or sip sweet cocktails at Grand Oriental's Blue Leopard. Bars that are happening are Bradman Bar, Cricket Club Café, 34 Queen’s Road; Frangpiani,126 Havelock Road; Glow Bar, on the third floor of the Automobile Association Building, 42A Sir Mohamed Marcan Marker Mawatha; Cheers, Colombo Plaza; White Horse, 2 Navam Mawatha; and Koluu’s Tulips, 383 Duplication Road. Bars stay open until around 11pm and nightclubs fill up after this, keeping the beats pumping until 3am or 4am. Dress smartly and avoid sandals to get into Colombo's larger nightclubs. Even though most of the nightlife takes place at 5-star hotels in Colombo, there are also many other places throughout the rest of Sri Lanka which cater to those who enjoy a lively night out.

Another great way to spend the night on the town in Colombo is grabbing a mike and singing your heart out at one Colombo's hottest karaoke pubs. The Lava Lounge at the Colombo Hilton, uses the latest equipment along with a massive collection of music. The atmosphere is bright and fun and your choice of beverage will never be a problem with the Lava Lounge's comprehensive selection of fine wines and liquor.

For well organised and colourful beach parties, head off to Hikkaduwa and Arugam Bay. Meet new people at small and friendly Top Secret, or play pool at Roger's Garage. When the bars close, gather together a group of sun-drenched beach bums and continue partying on the beach.

There are also theatres in Colombo, cinemas showing films from the USA, ballet, concerts and theatre productions.
