  • 1. 50th Street

    50th Street is a proper pub, one that's been honing its craft since it opened in 1997. Today, the bi-level bar remains enormously popular with expats, foreign tourists, and a few middle-class Burmese. The extensive menu includes a selection of pizzas; portions are hearty, the better to be washed down with a good selection of beers, wines by the glass, and decent cocktails.

  • 2. 19th Street, Chinatown

    For a whole barbecued fish and a draft beer, 19th street in Yangon's Chinatown is unbeatable. There are restaurants along both sides of the street, with little outdoor grills and plastic tables and chairs set up, the stools often occupied by locals in their undershirts and pajama bottoms.

  • 3. Min Min's

    This sweet little eatery doubles as a western-style watering hole, with good cocktails. It's a family affair, with Min Min and his wife running things and their daughter Soe Soe acting as a runner. Visitors tuck into heaping plates of pasta with homemade pesto washed down with proper piña coladas, made with plenty of rum and fresh lime. Nearly 10,000 miles from Havana, Min Min's mojitos are spot on, a most welcome refreshment after a hot day of touring. Min Min's also offers tour services, though we caution you not to sign up for any treks after your second mojito.

  • 4. Sapphire Bar & Lounge

    The Shwedagon Pagoda is at its most gorgeous at night and, from Alfa Hotel's rooftop bar, you can see it clearly in the distance, a gilded piece of history shining bright. It's a simple bar where people gather for a drink or two and quiet conversation. A local saung harpist places plays nightly from 7 to 9. Because the rooftop is open to the elements, the bar is closed during Myanmar's rainy season, roughly June to September.

  • 5. Shwe Ya Su

    This is a simple, unpretentious Burmese restaurant that also serves local draft beer and can concoct simple mixed drinks like rum and coke (no gin and tonics, though). Locals tuck into a bevy of dishes and watch soccer on a big screen indoors while tourists, exhausted from cycling all day, lounge in outdoor seating, surrounded by trees wrapped in strings of twinkling lights. The young servers are eager to please and the whole place has a lovely, laid-back vibe.

  • 6. Strand Bar

    When the Strand Hotel opened in 1901, its swanky bar was the place to see and be seen. Today, Yangon is a very different place and the bar is still pretty, if pretty staid, except on Friday night, when it comes alive with expats who giddily pack in for two-for-one happy hour, which runs 5 to 10 pm.

    92 Strand Rd., Yangon (Rangoon), Yangon, Myanmar
  • 7. The Blind Tiger

    This hot bar, started by an arty Yangon expat and a Bangkok-based art curator, is a speakeasy in the true sense of the word. There are no signs out front. You need to look for the security guard lingering out front of this nondescript corner apartment building, chatting to the local residents, then slip inside the main entrance and make a beeline for the end of the corridor, where you’ll come to a closed door and a street-art painting of a tiger on the wall. The security guy should follow, but if he doesn’t, be patient. Someone will soon open the door to this dimly lit, scarlet-wall-papered bar with an atmospheric jazz sound track that is probably heaving with in-the-know expats. The cocktails are great and the tapas-style sharing plates are delicious.

    Corner of Nawaday St. and Alain Pyar Pagoda Rd., Yangon (Rangoon), Yangon, Myanmar
  • 8. Weather Spoon's Bagan Restaurant and Bar

    A popular backpacker joint beloved for good burgers and free Wi-Fi, Weather Spoon's also serves strong rum cocktails and is always buzzing. It's a great spot to meet other travelers. They stop serving at 10 pm.

    Nyaung-U, Mandalay, Myanmar
