    Coffee By The Boot

    Named for its location next to a 3½m-high Mongolian gutul (traditional riding boot), this cosy spot is decorated with murals of snow leopards and argali sheep. It has the best (only?) real coffee in the aimag, brewing the full gamut of caffeinated treats from espressos (T2000) to Americanos (T2500) to hazelnut lattes (T3500). It also has tea, juice and shakes.

    Khovd's answer to Ministry of Sound, this basement venue has a look-at-me DJ, big booth seating and beer by the bottle (Heineken T5000), plus karaoke and VIP rooms attached. Serves a basic range of Mongolian dishes.

    Irish Pub

    'Least Irish Irish Pub' is a hotly contested category of establishment worldwide, but we may have a winner here. That said, it's rather snazzy inside, with disco lighting, comfy booth seating and a whole lot of vodka.
