We came here on Friday night hoping to enjoy local music. Perhaps we came too early (20:00) but it was deserted, except for the staff and one beginning guitar player. We didn’t stay.More

House of Music is largely frequented by locals and expats for its focus on original live Nepali music - from rock to reggae, himalayan blues to jazz (rarely covers). Artists featured are up-and-coming and popular Nepali bands. House of Music also has a roof-top garden terrace where it serves great food and drinks at very reaonable price. One of the very few bars in Kathmandu serving draught beer!!!
