Ulaanbaatar Night Clubs

Mongolia Night Clubs

Discos and nights clubs were banned during the communist era. Therefore, there was no disco or night clubs, which run their operations independently in Ulaanbaatar City before 1990. But today hundreds of discos and night clubs operate in Ulaanbaatar where young people spend their spare time there.

These are the most famous night clubs in Ulaanbaatar that are often visited by foreigners. Oasis Club, Strings, Collective Night Club, Silence, Info Club, The Steppe Inn, UB Palace ….

UB Club

The UB Club can be found on Tourist Street and is another venue popular with UB’s student community. The club offers regular live music sets, which mainly consist of R ‘n’ B Hip Hop and Rap bands. The food and drink menu is also generally pretty good too, offering a range of tasty appetizers and main courses. The club also has one of the best pool tables in UB.

Oasis Club

Situated just north of Seoul Street, this modern club is small but a cool nightspot for young and beautiful. Entrance is free to Mongolians but 2500Tg for foreigners. The music is eclectic to say he least but normally maintains a steady beat of either dance or pop. Drinks work out about 2000Tg for a beer (Heineken, Bud or Mongol) and a little more for a shot of whisky. It’s got a modern cool pseudo-arabic crossed with city chic decor and there are two curtained off areas you can reserve for a private party. Otherwise you can lounge in the large sofa areas or take a stool at the bar area. A regular haunt of travelers and especially the Peace Corps crowd – and even though it’s runs by an expat, it also invites its fair share of locals which tends normally to be beautiful women and 50cent-a-likes. Unfortunately a night in Oasis would not be complete without either the police shutting it down for a few minutes around midnight or a fight. The security has a habit f being less than effective and last time I went there I was told I’d just missed a mini-riot. But despite these unfortunate regular occurrences, Oasis is one of the top nightspots in UB.

Collective Night Club

The Collective is situated one block north from the White house Hotel. The decor is ok and the bar serves the usual suspects. Not particularly foreigner friendly, the few occasions I’ve visited this place has usually involved some pissed local, trying his luck and our beer.

The club is a Russian owned place and the owner/manager is reasonably friendly. As per usual they turn a blind eye to the ruffling up of foreigners … as long as the doorman lets you in, in the first place. Go somewhere else, there’s plenty to choose from. AVOID!

You strike me with a pain as bright as steel! The Collective should change it’s name to The Selective, ironically some of the cliental look like they should be in Star Trek as well.

Silence Night Club

Latest music, talented DJ and nice atmosphere Service: techno and mixed house techno and latino mixed music
Admission: Friday and Saturday
Woman- 3000 tog; Man- 5000 tog Open: 10 p.m – 4 a.m

To be honest I’ve only been here twice and both times were crap! It’s a pretty dark place and lacks things like people to pad out the decor and make the club a good night out. The music is a mix of 80’s pop and dance/ trance music.

Watch out for the bar staff, who have a reputation for over charging customer bar tabs, don’t go there too drunk, and if the Police come in asking for money or your passport, tell them to shove it.

The drinks aren’t too expensive (nothing you wouldn’t expect from a club in London)! The food menu is ok, and they do a particularly good barbeque during the summer months, which I haven’t tried. The restaurant is also popular at weekends and during the day for it’s appetizing lunch menu.

The club is situated opposite the Dublin bar on Seoul Street if you miss it, you’ll see it when you hear the locals trying to kicking the door down to get in!

Info Club

The info club is a well established bar and restaurant and is a regular spot for the Mongolia’s youth and student Genre! The bar has regular live bands, that are generally pretty good to boot! Playing music from a variety of genre’s, the “Lemon’s”, who are a popular Mongolian Indie cover band make regularly appearances at the club. The radio station 102.5FM is also run from this club and airs much of the live music direct from the stage.

The bar is quite popular with the ex – pat community and is worth a visit if you’re looking for some live entertainment on an evening out. The food menu isn’t too spectacular … a commonality shared with student bars in any part of the world! But is worth a try just for chips and snacks.

Again watch the tab, the drinks menu is good and not over priced, the seating is spacious and not too shabby. The bar is popular with couples and is generally quite a friendly hangout that isn’t too far from the city centre.

Location: Seoul Street

The Steppe Inn

The Steppe Inn is the British Embassy’s very own bar and is usually manned by the Embassy staff themselves with the Ambassador at the pump … or gassing away to the customers, to the general disarray of the rest of the Embassy staff! and ready to regail you with tales of dirk and danger from various non classified postings around the world!

The Steppe is a small friendly place to hangout and is open between the hours of 6:30 – 8:30 on Friday evenings the Steppe is a good place to stop for a quick one on your way in or out of town. The bar is attached to the British Embassy on Peace Avenue, opposite the Wrestling Palace. Sporting it’s very own Mongolian Ger and a dart board! The bar is full of regailia left behind by numerous visitor of all shapes and sizes.

The Steppe should be visited by any Brits visiting or passing through Mongolia at least once, although membership is required or you can visit the pub by invitation. You don’t have to be a British citizen to join and all who enter are made welcome, in a good old British fashion. The bar is frequented by Mongolian’s and a mass of other foreign nationals throughout the year.

Useful vocabulary: “I saaay old chap!”

“Pimm’s and lemondae please” (just kidding people) … you can’t buy Pimm’s here!

The Steppe Inn, Located on Peace Avenue, opposite the Wrestling Palace in the 13th District.

UB Palace

This is a large venue that hosts premier concerts and performances every week. Normally caters for the younger crowd hosting music concerts of rock, metal and hiphop acts. Normally for these events the venue is changed to a standing arena so the patrons can dance – some a bit more boysterious, especially if it’s a thrash metal act! It a squeeze down the front on these nights but good sound and lighting that accompany the acts make it worthwhile.

Tickets start from 3000Tg which is quite reasonable as some nights they really pack in the acts – from 10-15 performing in one evening! Although there is variety, if there’s a good band playing it seems they are pulled off just as they get going. The acts normally start around 7pm but often are late starting. And as you leave, be sure to make a quick exit – the security there tend to round up any stragglers but waving their stun guns about – an unnecessary but none-the-less scary measure! Seating for the more family orientated shows, a trip to UB Palace is a good evening. It’s off Peace Avenue to the west of the city – every cab driver will know where it is.
