Restaurant details
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Its small, happening, crowded and yet a fun place to spend an evening and go on to the night. Filled with mostly foreigners with a sprinkle of Indian tourists. I and my host were lucky to get a place in the small pub but as the evening wore on I kept loving it more and more. The music in the background was classic rock and played at a decent volume not to disturb the talkers and their listeners. The decor was simple but friendly and bar is well stocked. The service by one and only efficient but friendly waiter was sufficient for the place. In short "everybody was laughing and everybody was having a good time".

The best part of the evening was my meeting with Joey who was at the bar most part of the evening. He was a great host and a very very friendly man. So when you visit Joey's put do stop over at the bar to say hello to the great man.

You dont get food here except some Indian namkeen with each round of drink. There is a restaurant next door which takes the orders and delivers the food but they too, like the rest of Darjeeling town, close down at 9 PM and so your left to your own to fend for food.

Joey's was the only place in the whole city which I liked. India has changed but Darjeeling has not. Its the same as it was in the British days except it was less crowded then Im sure. Thank you Joey for keeping this sleepy town alive after dark.

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 were really good, too! A really fun place to spend the evening.

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.
