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.
