As the oldest building in the area, Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct offers historical colonial architecture in addition to its fine shops and restaurants. Originally used as a hospital by the Dutch in the 17th century, the attraction was later transformed into a shopping and dining precinct. Pick up souvenirs, such as clothing, jewelry, handicrafts, and artworks, or find outside seating where you can sip wine and watch passersby. Wander around the two large courtyards and keep an eye out for street musicians, theater performances, and art exhibitions, too.

Awesome ambience and aura. The place remains live even at 1 am in the morning/night. The area is spread with lots of pubs and shopping area and is a delight to be at.

The Dutch hospital serves more as a landmark for these night area in my opinion.
Excellent place to chill. Lot of options to explore my favourite being 'Next innings'. It gives a very good vibe. It also has the famous Ministry of Crabs. You can chill in any of the lounges they have or just roam around during the evening. We liked it so much on our visit to Colombo that we came here everyday during our stay.
