If we ask ourselves what do we expect from a pub then definitely Joey's Pub does not accumulate all those things. But if anyone wants to hit a place with a difference in Darjeeling among many places comes Joey's Pub , where visitors share common table and conversation or a memory to cherish for. Sometimes the proprietor himself indulges into... More

I always wanted to visit this place since I read reviews on trip advisor. And did with my wife and one friend in December 2014. The place looks nice with nice ambiance as it should be inside a pub. But hospitality is very poor. The person in counter (most probably the pub owner) replied our questions with almost single words... More

A small cozy place to have a couple of drinks... interiors are done up to match the old English look. Drinks are reasonably priced with old English classics in the background music. They house amazing collection of liquors.

The place was to have been torn down and replaced by a hotel. Glad that didn't happen though. The place is small and cozy and they have a stove that warms the place in the winter months. They open after 6:00 pm. Boisterous customers are discouraged. An oasis in Darjeeling.

So I visited this place with pretty high expectations as there were some hype around this place. This is the only one real pub in Darjeeling with relative long opening hours (22h) but otherwise I found nothing special in this place if you are from Europe where pub life is the part of everyday life. In Darjeeling it is an... More

the ambience is really good with low lights and music playing in the background. they have good selection of drinks. the only downside is that the pub has very less seating capacity. Many will be seating o standing at the smoking area which is like an extension of its warehouse. But I feel that this somehow adds to the charm... More

I spent 6 week in Darjeeling and found Joey's to be the best place to get a beer/spirit/wine and meet, not only fellow travellers, but locals too. Joey has fantastic taste in music so you'll often hear The Beatles, the Kinks, The Who, Rodriguez, Creedence Clearwater and many more playing through his sound system. The beer is ₹150 for a...
