Le Club Saint Germain: Sleazy
Wow. One-to-one patron to prostitute ratio. This place is sleazy, relatively expensive, far from the city center (edge of Zone Four) and leaves you with a different sense of humanity after viewing the disgusting spectacle inside.
Popular with wealthier Ivorians on Friday and Saturday nights, Saint Germain is an unfortunately typical west African sleazy night club. Flag beers are three times what they cost at other bars and the women of the night are unrelenting. This place may be worth going to just for the novelty of it, but I will certainly not return.
Dress Code: None
Coppa-Cabana: Campsite and bar at the ocean
When we were in Abidjan, we spent our evenings at the lovely campsite at the ocean east of Abidjan. It was a safe and relaxed place. The campsite was run by two French brothers, Jean and Jeannot.
In the evening we sat at the campsite or at the stairs down to the beach to look at the sunset or we drunk our beers in the campingbar and chatted with the local visitors.
