The Hard Rock Cafe reopened on November 1st with a hot house band you can read about on our Hot Acts page. A few things are now starting to happen too on the famous Bangla Road walking street. It’s a bit quiet by normal standards, but it’s slowly getting busier and noisier!

The Red Hot Bar at the Jung Ceylon end has a house band competently knocking out the western cover songs while further down you’ll find Sweeties Bar with another doing the same thing. But the Sweetie Bar has to compete with all the noise coming out of Soi Sea Dragon. Further on still and the Dublin Irish Bar in a quieter zone is set up for bands. Turn left and walk south down the quieter Beach Road and Molly’s Irish Bar awaits you. The set up there suggests they hope to host bands when tourist numbers improve.

The Hippie Road Bar in 200 Year Road is now doing rock music and has to be a whole lot cheaper than the Hard Rock if that’s an issue! It has Classic Rock music of a high quality most nights.

We’ll report more as things develop!
