Stopped at this very lively bar after dinner with some other travelers. While there was no seating left the staff quickly found us a spot after a short wait and ensured we had beverage in hand while waiting. Lots of locals eating and drinking, live band (locals friendly music). Decent place to drink and absorb the night.

Good bar with good music and reasonable drinks. Sometimes the crowd can get a bit rowdy with the locals around.

It is famous for cocktails and music. Area is very limited and few benches are in front and a dancing floor next to that. Variety of cocktails and drinks available. Foods are delicious.

I visited this venue every evening. The atmosphere cannot be beaten in Negombo. The foreigners and locals that patronise this venue are all very friendly and I left having made quite a few new friends there. The prices are very reasonable and the service is excellent! A must do in negombo!
