Entertainment and Nightlife in Jammu
The major attraction in Jammu is tourism and the exquisite tourism spots which thrive in natural beauty and adventurous sports. However, with the establishment of malls in Jammu, the culture of entertainment and nightlife is slowly setting in and picking up, though it is mostly in its primitive stage yet.
Aided by richness in natural beauty the city of Jammu has a quiet nightlife and does not boast of too many pubs, bars or clubs because this region is renowned for its majestic hill stations where one locks up at home in the evenings and relaxes in the aroma of a cup of rich coffee or hot chocolate. This is in tandem with the basic nature of hill stations in India, which are not known to have a blossoming nightlife.
In fact, it is customary for restaurants and shops to shut early in the evening, consequently, curbing the options of nightlife in comparison to other metro cities of India. However, there is some respite for tourists who are exclusively looking for some thrilling and exciting nightlife wonders. The nightlife in Jammu is limited to the pubs, hotels and bars that are part of the big hotels of Jammu.
One of the other major contributors to Jammu being devoid of any nightlife is its reputation of being the temple town and, therefore, alcohol is not available in abundance and is scarcely found. You would be fortunate to find a handful of bars and clubs serving alcohol, as a part of the parent hotels only. One of the eminent bars in Jammu is the Pavilion, which is a wholesome service bar at the Hotel Asia. Other bars are the Nagin Bar, Paradise bar etc. There are a quite a few cinema halls where one can catch the latest flick during the evenings.
Also, there are several restaurants, fast-food joints and cafes. Thus, your hunt for an entertaining and rejuvenating nightlife when holidaying in Jammu can be fulfilled with a visit to the much talked-about cafes, or you can enjoy a delectable dinner or walk down the lakeside while the glorious nature engulfs you in its beauty and serenity that this place has to offer.
