    Ask Alech Tej house: Local nightlife

    by hannette Updated Apr 3, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was quite a surprise to discover this Tej House ...
    Tej is a local brewed honey based alcoholic drink. There are different 'strongnesses' in alcohol: one kind without alcohol, one with a little, and one with a lot. I tried the one with a little but I didn't really like it. Maybe I should have tried the one with a lot of alcohol.

    In this pub there was live music and locals as well as tourists danced...!

    The service was friendly and there was an easy atmosphere...

    ASK ALECH TEJ HOUSE: HAVE A TEJ - OR TWO!

    by DAO Updated Oct 17, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness



    Tej is a thick and tart honey wine that actually tastes pretty good. They ferment this stuff for about 1 year. Yep, a year. This Tej House serves 3 varieties:
    • Normal
    • Strong
    • Kick your ass (so my local guide said)
    It can be very strong and so tart that you may only want one. It is served in something resembling a laboratory beaker. You hold the neck with your first 2 fingers. Please finish what you order. They really don’t appreciate having to pour away something that took so long to produce. The décor inside is a fascinating mini-museum of Ethiopian life full of musical instruments and native crafts. Worth at least one drink.

    LOVE IS 3 TEJ'S!

    No name bar: Even More Local

    Opposite Tej House is a late bar for locals. We had a great laugh with tour guide Mary, and her friends. Cheap beer and music until midnight, then no music but cheap beer until the early hours.

    Very friendly until we started to talk football with the locals.

    After many Tej and beer drinks, my anti Manchester United comments did not go down too well and we were told to leave for our own safety.

    Great little bar and worst toilets anywhere in Ethiopia.

    No Name Bar Nice

    The Tej House: How the locals do it

    by boltonian Written Aug 2, 2008

    About 200m down the hill from the church entrance is a great spot. The Tej house serves beer but also Tej. This is a honey wine, native to this part of Africa. It comes in weak, medium and storong. Nice tatsing, it blows your mind.

    Local music and singing takes place from about 9pm each evening.

    Loved it.

    This is the closest you will get to a bar here in Lalibela, apart from the hotels.
    TEJ is a local home made drink made out of honey. You can order it in 3 "levels": soft, medium and high alcohol. If you look for something similar to a beer ask HIGH. It is sweet and thick, nice to spend an evening.

    Dress Code: Here I am with 2 israeli friends, I met them in Gonder and kept meeting them along the way: Aksum, lalibela, Addis... They came to work as volunteers in an orphan place of Mother Theresa near Debre Libanos and made a quick tour around the country before.
    I am moving in the pic, because I was telling the waiter how to use the camera (this was the 4th attemp and it took nearly 5 minutes to take a "normal" photo!).

    This little place is almost across for the Tej House. They serve alcohol (not tej) and offer a coffee ceremony. If you have not seen the coffee veremony – its worth a visit.

    7 OLIVES HOTEL: A SELF PORTRAIT - SUNDOWN ON THE TERRACE

    by DAO Updated Apr 23, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    The 7 Olives Hotel is at the top of the town and the edge of the highest hill. So this is the best place in town to sit on the very wide terrace and enjoy the sunset.

    CHEERS!
