Why 50th Street Bar is special ?
50th Street Bar and Grill is a modern midrange option for Western food just outside the beating heart of downtown Yangon (Rangoon). Air-con, WiFi, excellent food, friendly service, local entertainment and quality alcohol are the offerings that bring the crowds here.
The building stands out among the traditional ones elsewhere on the street and will be hard to miss. While there’s a small touch of ‘old town west’ outside, inside it’s two storeys of modern, Western styling. It’s not centrally located, and taxi drivers likely won’t know where it is, but at least they can get you to the street. It’s on the lower block of 50th, so head south. There’s almost always someone to open the door for your entrance into an open, dimly lit restaurant with wondrous air-con.
How to get to 50th Street Bar?
Very easy to get there by taxi from anywhere central with no more than 3 $ . You alway can even get taxis fairly easily when they pour you out the door at 1.30am.

Tips for you
Its a great hangout for ex pats and locals with the best staff and a really good and inexpensive menu. Pleanty of choice with daily specials and for me not over priced as some of the downtown bars can be. Plenty on the drinks menu and with happy hours another reason to call in more than once a week Sure its a British pub style, its got great atmosphre and the servuce is slick and professional.
I am amazed that in this day and age the management of 50th Street would allow smoking inside its establishment. It's time to adapt to the 21st century. Practically everyone else in the world has.
