The atmosphere at Joey's Pub is wonderful. My boyfriend and I showed up before anyone else had arrived, and grabbed a cozy bench and table and ordered our drinks. The bartender was awesome and there was really fun music playing. The heater and dim lighting is very cozy, and the flowers on the table were a nice touch. The drinks... More

The place is packed with tourists (and its really small), but has a great atmosphere. We felt the prices were really expensive by Indian standards (we were in India for long enough to start thinking relative to local prices).

What can I say, it's one of those special places that make the evenings sublime. The only problem is I wish it was larger because it's always packed to the rafters. Hope to make it there again somday.

What a great find! This is a proper little pub with a good mix of locals and travellers (and no groups of staring men either). A pleasure to enjoy good company and good beer. Located near the big cinema down from the taxi chowk

I just returned from 2nd trip to Darjeeling in 18 months and once again made sure I popped in to Joey's bar almost every night whilst there. It may not be big in size but it is big on hospitality and a great place to meet both locals and other tourists. The couple that run this bar are some of... More

Joey's is a very cozy little pub in Darjeeling. When you step inside, it feels a bit like you've gone back in time. The Zombies and Otis Redding play over the sound system, the bartender (Joey himself?) looks straight from the mentioned time period, and pictures of the Beatles and British flags adorn the walls. The bottles of beer are... More

This is a must visit for those who enjoy drinks. It's a small cozy place in the main market. Beware tho, they don't serve any food. So make sure you have a bite to eat before you go. But it's definitely worth a visit when you're in Darjeeling. We had an awesome night here chatting with random foreigners!

Tiny as a doll's house, furnished as your grandparent's livingroom, this Pub is the perfect mixture of childhood memories and adult drinks. The best place to spend Darjeeling nights.
