Ulaanbaatar is known for being the hub of Mongolian history and culture, but it also has an energetic nightlife. Discos and nights clubs were banned during the communist era. Therefore, there was no disco or night clubs, which run their operations independently in Ulaanbaatar City before 1990. But today hundreds of discos and night clubs operate in Ulaanbaatar where young people spend their spare time. This summer, in centre of city, “Night Street” was opened.
