Here are a few places that have a good atmosphere and are popular amongst the locals.

 

Sports Hive

First and foremost this is a really cool place to hang out. In the heart of Jhamsikhel, this place offers more than just live sports. The ambience is quite pleasant and the place also does live music on certain days. But the place is famous for live games, especially the English Premier League. The atmosphere on big games can be quite electric as there aren’t many places around the area that does live games on the big screen. On other days the place also shows cricket and F1 depending on what the people want. Apart from the fact it shows most live sports in the multiple screens, the food and drinks on offer is not bad either. So if you’re a sports lover, this place is a must visit.
