Hello Foodies or should I say Party People ! Are you ready for a night out in Accra ?
Our hosts for the night decided to show us what the nightlife in Accra was all about. Who needs to sleep when you can enjoy cocktails all night long ? 😉
Below are the 4 places we went to on that warm yet pleasant Thursday night. We most definitely recommend the first 3 for they are very happening on Friday & Saturday Night.
Honeysuckle Pub and Restaurant
A traditional English pub with a very cool atmosphere…
Mr. Richard; the bartender was welcoming and also very nice as we asked him to surprise us with something special, the result was a cocktail called « The Special Richard » pretty good I might say.
Address: Ring-Way Estates, Ring-Road | Greater Accra | Ghana
Firefly Lounge Bar
Ratted one of the top 5 in Accra; it’s one of the hottest pub!
Steven, one of the bartender made us very good mojitos. I usually try different cocktails, but I don’t regret it one sip, it was on point. The music, a nice selection of old r&b jams, definitely contributed to a great time at Firefly.
Address: 11th Lane, Embassy Road, Osu, Accra
Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel Accra
I can’t say much about the Cocktail bar at the Mövenpick, as it was closing at midnight. We were however still able to walk around and do what we do best : take pictures.
According to my Ghanaian brother & host, this place is packed on weekends with a cool crowd of friendly locals.
Address: PMB CT 343, Cantonments Ridge | Accra | Ghana
The last place of that Thursday night out in Accra was Vienna City; a club located in Circle.
It was « francophone night » with a DJ from Gabon & Benin ( although he sounded Ivorian to me), we had a good time. However, I will probably not go back there if I had the choice nor will I recommend it to my friends and that include you fellow readers unless you are looking for a totally different kind of atmosphere.
