This location is tucked into Thamel. When you walk into the bar, you see an expanse of room for both lounging and dancing in front of the stage. It's a cool place - you dig?

Great venue for concerts! Do not miss out if you get a chance! We walked in randomly and ended up dancing away with the sound of RATM and Metallica. Thank goodness Nepal's music scene is still in the 90s!
