Coconuts Yangon Nightlife

Nightlife in Yangon doesn’t always mean what it does elsewhere. Sure, there are clubs, like GT-R, Pioneer, Brave, DJ Bar and The Vibe. But these venues may not appeal to you if you’re not in the mood for “What Does the Fox Say” or if you don’t want to spend your evening with working women. A more tasteful side of Yangon nightlife revolves around singular events, like poetry readings, rooftop hip hop parties, stand-up comedy shows and documentary screenings. A couple years ago, everyone you knew would be at the one event planned for that evening. These days, creative, entrepreneurial, festive folks are pouring into Yangon, and FOMO is now possible. We’ll let you know what’s popping off so you can design your perfect weekend.
