We visited 41 Sugar back in September 2016 after arriving in Colombo for one night before our flight back home the next day. As we didn't have long in the city, we quickly googled 'cocktail bars' and this was the first one that popped up. We made our way there in a tuk tuk and were sent to the top... More

Went for drinks on a Friday and ended up dancing the night away because the band and place was so good. Drinks and food (they only serve tapas) are on the pricey side, but the service and the atmosphere is excellent. The crowd is a mix of locals and foreigners and they play great. Overall, a good place to unwind... More

This place was one of my regular spots when I was in lanka to go have a quiet beer or even to hang out with friends. They do have great selection of drinks, nibbles and the staff are super nice and friendly. Very nice atmosphere too.

This is a great place to hang after work for a cocktail or after dinner. They also serve dinner and they are food is not bad. But more of a hangout place than a restaurant for dinner.

I think small beer (350 ml) for 500 Rs should be well chilled. But place is very nice with life music on evening.

From the mix of starters the calamari rings, fried cashew nuts and battered prawns were really great. The devilled chicken did not taste like chicken at all. It was a let down. I had the prawn Fettuccini but for some reason it was quite bland. The live band was great and hugely talented and very entertaining. The ambience was very... More

Excellent ambiance with tasteful decor and subdued lighting. Not air-conditioned but as it on the 3rd floor there is cross ventilation. Open only at night with a happy hour with 50% off on cocktails and wines from 6 to 7 p. m. Friendly and quick service. The Barman isn't top notch but he manages. Very good coffee. Everything is good... More

41 is one of the best recommendations for a unique bar and restaurant experience in Colombo. Excellent and regularly changing cocktails with a twist and a well curated fusion menu makes for a great balance of drink and dine options. The rooftop location and lighting is spot on. Even Sunday afternoons are great to just chill. Regular live music adds... More
