*'''The Dip''', like most other Bengali bars, is a smoke-filled darkened room where many of its patrons would rather not be recognized too easily. Definitely an experience, nonetheless. Beers cost upwards of Tk 150 and "tots," which are single ounce servings of gin, vodka or whiskey, are available from Tk 70(local brands)-Tk 200. Female patrons may feel slightly uncomfortable.

*<drink name="North End Coffee" alt="" address="Kha-47-1 Pragati Sarani, Shahzadpur, North Badda" directions="Around the corner from US Embassy, across from Cambrian College and above the DBBL ATM" phone="+880 17-4105 5597" url="http://northendcoffee.com" hours="Seven days 08:00-21:00, except Tuesday closed and Friday 14:00-21:00" price="" lat="23.79098243" long="90.41939287">With foreign ownership, their own roasting machine and big huge burlap sacks of coffee in the back, this is definitely the place to get your caffeine fix. Prices reasonable. No meals yet, just muffins and brownies. </drink>

*<drink name="Gloria Jean's Coffees" alt="" address="House 35, Gulshan Avenue, Gulshan-1" directions="near Gulshan-1 circle (south)" phone="+880 1970 008989" url="http://www.gloriajeanscoffees.com/bd" hours="09:00-22:00" price="" lat="" long="">Newly opened coffee shop with broad range of coffees, snacks and large inside and outside sitting areas. Reasonable prices?? (these are wetern prices -- NOT budget by any means -- must have high profit margin as salaries much lower than western countries) and definitely a great and cosy place to spend the afternoons and evenings.</drink>

*<drink name="Kiva Han" alt="" address="House - 1/A (1st Floor), Road 23, Gulshan - 1, Dhaka-1212" phone="+88-02-8813399" url="" More of a local flair than North End Coffee although coffee is a slight tick below.  Coffee and a mostly Western menu. </drink>

'''Post''' There are many Post Offices in every area. Working hours are 09:30 to 14:30. Some big Post offices also have evening shifts from 15:00 to 19:00. Bangladesh Post is pretty good. The cost of sending a letter is very reasonable. The main Post Office (Dhaka G.P.O) is situated at Paltan, near to Gulistan and is open from 09:00 to 19:30. You can send Registered and normal letters, Parcel, E.M.S(Express Mail Service) from there at a reasonable price. It's better to send a parcel via E.M.S because it goes faster.
