Loads of people, music and entertainment. There are a number of coffee shops beside the water where you can sit and enjoy what's going on.

This is a peaceful pond in the old city surrounded by mosque, cafe, restaurant, and shops. This is one of the best place for people watching and also for the night view. You don't want to miss it.

During the day, this central square is a pleasant park. At night, there’s music from the restaurant and you can sit by the pool and have a drink and listen for free.

The Heart of the old City with an iconic pond decorated with some interesting statues and plenty of shops and cafe around. A fine place to take a break and sip coffee to admire the typical Central Asia view.

Right in centre of tourist area with shops and stalls. Building and square pond seem to be centre of night life, with loud music and neon signs. Early in morning is when it is at its most peaceful.

This place is the absolute hub of old Bukhara. There are a few over-priced, average restaurants here, good for only a drink or two; definitely look elsewhere for food. A pond, rather dirty, sits at the centre, and at night the atmosphere around this area...More

Great happy and lively place in Bukhara. The center of town. Enjoy monuments, cafes, restaurants, and a nice plaza. Night entertainment is a little noisy with a kind of light show. That part is not historic. But this is a great spot.
