Agra Nightlife Guide to Agra Nightclubs, Bars Clubs

Far from many people’s perceptions, Agra has quite a sufficient nightlife. As one can imagine, the main nightlife area is situated beside the Taj Mahal where most backpacker accommodation is. There are several terraces where people can enjoy a drink without the hassles of the many sellers that full the streets during the day time.

Also, if visiting the Taj Mahal, be sure to wonder back in the early evening to catch the late sun soak up the white marble. There is something very magical about the Taj glowing in front of you.

But for a more adventurous evening, dance to the latest Bollywood music and international chartbusters in some of the bars and clubs of Agra. Here you can enjoy an array of mouth watering cocktails and local dishes to finish up your day.

Although most bars are located in Hotels, they don’t skimp on entertainment quality or the Agra flavour. Some bars to look out for are the ‘Mughal Bar’ in the Clarks Shiraz Hotel, ‘On The Rocks’ Bar in the Jaypee Palace Hotel and ‘The Tequila’ at the Mansingh Palace Hotel.

One thing to keep in mind is that Agra has very few street lights, therefore be cautious wondering the streets at night. If at all possible travel with a group of friends or enjoy the bar at your own hotel.

Other nightlife activities include cultural shows which are usually shown at some of the larger hotels and restaurants. One event not to miss is the Taj Mahotsav in February. This annual festival brings to life the culture, arts, local delicacies and dances of Uttar Pradesh. Be prepared to see beautifully decorated camels and elephants strutting their stuff on the street lined with craft stalls and incredible performances from all over India. This is by far one of Agra’s highlights.

Although Agra may not have quite the intense nightlife of places like Kolkata, it sure makes it its own with beautiful terraces for a quiet drink and places to dance the night away.
