Description: CONCEPT An evolution of the groundbreaking concept of having two noises within one space, CLIQUE reopens with a bang and presents CLIQUE BAR and CLIQUE CLUB. TWO different ambiances, genres of music and design concepts in ONE venue. As the night progresses, your experience can follow suit without leaving the space. DJ's, live music and performances will seamlessly navigate your journey within the venue. SPACE What do YOU fancy, tonight? A lychee laced martini to take the edge off a long day, to dance like no one is watching or enjoy a fine fish dish. Whatever it is, you can get it at CLIQUE. CLIQUE is located in the Colombo Pharmacy building and is sprawled across two floors. The main floor is demarcated into a BAR, featuring a private walk-in elevator, outdoor seating area, and CLUB. The lower level hosts a fusion concept restaurant and intimate dinning area. DÉCOR & THEME CLIQUE GastrobAR A personality to dine for. Quirky, stylized, sophisticated and more than enough room for the booth of you! CLIQUE BAR has a nice mixture of modern diner and cocktail seating, there is a colourful story painted across the walls and more waiting to unfold. Whenever you stumble across an epic venue, you often wonder- "If only the walls could talk"....... so it is no surprise that this time around our walls are making a distinctive statement....come and get in on the conversation. Let us be a protagonist in YOUR story. CLIQUE CLUB The party leaves no room to LOUNGE. It is time to join the CLUB. Bring on the bigger, better and bolder. CLIQUE's boisterous alter ego defines the space and frames the city with a very distinctive (and breathtaking) point of VIEW. Modern in design and perspective, a very necessary late night adventure. It really is all of the lights. SERVICE & CUISINE Beautifully illustrated and illuminated, East meets West in all its eccentric glory at CLIQUE. The BAR opens early and the CLUB closes late, just for YOU- seven days a week. Serving South Asian gastro-pub inspired beverages and cuisine at the CLIQUE GastrobAR

The staff/bouncers were not only arrogant but racists too. I wonder how the owner would be.
Don't be too disappointed. Domino's pizza is right next door.

Dear Mishti,

Firstly I would like to clarify that you have reviewed the wrong entity. Clique Cuisine is a restaurant and not a club. Clique Lounge is a bar and night operation that is not listed under restaurants but under 'Nightlife in Colombo'.

Since we operate and manage both establishments I have inquired about the said incident and it was brought to our notice that the bar was operating at full capacity. We usually do not allow guests in if we are running at full capacity as the safety of our guests are very important to us. We can reassure you that we do not any way discriminate. We also are very strict on couples only and ensure that if the crowd isn't equally paired we don't allow them in as we like to keep a healthy ratio.

We are extremely sorry for the experience you had. Next time call us or come by early so we can accommodate you in the premises.

Bouncers flat out refused to let us in once he found out we were Indian. Shocking treatment and very sad in this modern time.

This is a cozy, centrally located gastro-bar. I really liked the view of town hall and viharamahadevi park at night - which was my highlight. The finger foods were good, but not sensational. The servers were attentive and polite. But all in all nothing exceptional.

Find this place as the friendliest place when it comes to colombo night life since the crowd is pretty decent compared to other night clubs
