Almost all of the bars are outdoors or open fronted, so the music from each venue makes for the most atmospheric night out you ever have had. Beer bars occupy most of the street’s length, with several go-go bars and a few pubs, restaurants, discos and shops rounding out the attractions, both on Bangla Road and down its side streets.
