A programme of Night-time Entertainment
Some people seem to be under the impression that there isn’t a great deal of night-time entertainment in Colombo. But they are wrong. For one thing, there is Colombo by Night – a unique evening programme with interesting and innovative things to see and do which will leave indelible images on the mind’s eye to be enjoyed long after the evening is over.
First, you will be transported to one of Colombo’s finest five-star hotels, the Ramada Renaissance, where you will view a slide presentation composed of vivid and vibrant visions of some of Sri Lanka’s many wonders; its ancient cities, its exotic wildlife, its beautiful beaches, its colourful festivals and timeless temples.
You will then have a ringside seat at a cultural performance staged by the acclaimed Sri Lanka National Dance Troupe. Traditional and novel Sri Lankan dance styles are interwoven in a varied selection of performances by talented artistes who will enthral you with a daring fire dance, twirling dancers in demon masks, and charming folk dances presented against the backdrop of the throbbing beat of the renowned Sri Lanka Drums.
When the last vibrations of the drums fade into the night air, a bountiful buffet awaits you, giving you a wide choice of deliciously prepared Continental, Eastern and Sri Lankan dishes. From soup to dessert, you be will be hard put to find fare offered in all of Colombo.
A brief tour of the city ensues, taking you to a change of venue: one of the most popular discos in town, the Colombo 2000 at the Galadari Meridien. You can sit back and enjoy a complimentary drink or join the crowd on the strobe-lit floor and dance to the non-stop beat of all of today’s exciting sounds.
As a fitting finale to the evening a visit to the Palm Beach Club, a first class casino with an established reputation for its elegant yet relaxed ambience, efficient and courteous staff, quality complimentary refreshments and most important abundant action at the gaming tables. As you enter, into this realm of lady luck, you are given 500 rupees worth of free play coupons to test your skill – and your luck at anything from Blackjack to Baccarat to Roulette. Stay and play as long as you like.
And when you want your evening of entertainment to come to an end, you will be individually dropped off in a chauffeur driven car.
Now who says there’s nothing to do in Colombo at night?
