Fancy some good Korean BBQ? Located in a narrow lane just of Pyay road Han Kook Kwan it offers excellent food but be prepared that no one speaks english.


Its not easy to find but its view of Schwedagon Pagoda is so worth it! Vista Bar  has a small bar and a couple of tables, perfect for a chilled evening with friends.

What’s hot

Thursday June 6th

It is the Swedish national day, but dont expect to find any celebrations in town. Instead you best bet for some fun is probably one of the regular Thursday night events such as the Martini & Pizza Night at Union Bar or the Cocktail Happy Hour at Inya 1.

Friday June 7th

Its that time of the month again, the first friday and the time when everyone gathers up at the British Club .

A good tip for your friday could be to start of with drinks at either the Yangon Yacht Club  (if the weather allows) or the Strand Hotel Happy Hour .

Not in a party mood? Why not go for the DOW’S PORT Wine Event at Acacia Tea Salon ? Quarto Products and Acacia Tea Salon are teaming up to showcase wines from the Douro Valley of Portugal with special guest Jorge Nunes.

Saturday June 8th

Are you ready for the YGN Hottest Party at Flamingo Bar? There are two special programs that included most attractive dance competition and beer competition.
Or how about Open Mic night that once again is upon us? This time with a new venue. Bring something to read or perform! Let them know if you want to perform before the show or just sign up the night of. Otherwise, come hang out and listen to some great stuff produced by your friends and fellow Yangonites!

Tuesday June 11th
