    Aquarius: Aquarius

    AQUARIUS
    used to be a German bar but the owners are presently Russians. Very nice place to go from 21:30 till 00:30.
    4 billiards, Darts, cocktails and beers, very international, very expensive, European prices!

    However, the place to go before going to night clubs.

    Now, they added dancing floor and large screen TV.

    Dress Code: Cool
    Beware of the numerous money girls who will ask you a drink. If they stay too long in the place without a drink, they are quicked out. When you pay the drink, they use to take it and leave you.

    Best night: Friday.
    I use to go there as a Before on Friday. There is a karaoke night while most expatriates meet from 10PM to 1AM.
    Unique: the shooter bar: for 10000 cedis (1USD) you have a shooter of cocktail ( my favorite is the B52 and the blow-job ( but this one is just because I like to ask it to the nice waitress))

    You have pools and kickers, darts, nice atmosphere.

    The bar is also a club for people who like to watch sport on television, large screen for mainly the Premier UK league, but also Cups, F1, golf, etc.

    On Thursday, always a Quizz, but if you are not British, don't hope to win.

    On Sunday, you have two recent movies on DVD on large screen at 8PM

    You can have delicious tex-mex food and imported beer.

    Dress Code: Casual

    a dinner at Next Door

    Next Door is an open place on the beach.

    Next Door organises a lot of different parties with themes.
    It is always a very nice and innovative place.

    Food is cheap but is very common.

    Bywell: Thursday concert

    by Alpha_Ghana Written May 16, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bywell is an open bar. Every Thursday, there is a band coming for high life music.
    From 6PM till 1AM, you can go and listen to music till 10PM when people start dancing.
    You can eat some barbecue food (kebab and grilled chicken).
    The bar is a very long one in U, perhaps the longest of Accra.
    Funny: when it is raining, you are stacked inside, the water is everywhere and there is only one way to the gutter: the gate.

    Dress Code: Cool, casual.

    Wai-ki-ki: Monday's best

    by Alpha_Ghana Updated May 11, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The place to be on Mondays.
    Everything is closed in Accra on Mondays... but Wai-ki-ki...
    From midnight to after dawn, you have a real nice night each and every Monday.
    Gate fee is very reasonable, and there are some strict rules so that there is never any problem in and around the club.

    There is a small parking, so it is advisable to park your car in the street, else you might be blocked or worse, see people sitting on your car or have some scratches because of other moving cars.

    One nice boy at the gate who worked in Amsterdam and speaks Dutch.

    Good music, good events.

    The club is in a place called Triangle of Bermuda, because there were three similar night spots in the area.
    The former name of Wai-ki-ki was Piccadilly, which was changed by everybody into "pick-a-lady" since it is very easy to get a girl there.

    Since there is a lot of competition with not money girls, students, home girls, etc. it is not a place to go with your wife/girlfriend.

    One says that going to Wai-ki-ki alone and come back alone is only for gays, real men cannot be resist.

    Dress Code: Cool.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Savannah club, formerly Chester's is a bar with a live band coming on Wednesdays.
    The music is very good, mainly Ghana high live.
    Every Wednesday, you can listen to nice music and even dance around the band.
    There is a gate fee of 20,000 cedi to prevent too many girls to enter.
    Cool place.

    Inside the bar, there is a special room for gays, since owner is gay.
    You can only enter there if you are also.

    Dress Code: Cool and casual.

    New Office: Before the night

    by Alpha_Ghana Updated Oct 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    New place, managed by a Ghanaian
    Funny spot: always activities, cocktail bar. The barmaids are former money girls from MAcumba. They are very sexy but look a little be used when you are close.
    You have billard and nice decoration
    You can also dance, but it happens that the place is empty and few people are there. You can still enjoy the bar. Music is good.

    Dress Code: Casual, no restriction

    by evliyasems Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Accra is famous throughout West Africa for its vibrant nightlife, especially its dance clubs, which centre around Nkrumah Circle. Rasta togs and dreadlocks usually mark the entrance to the hippest spots. Accra's beaches are another big draw, but the best ones are all a few kilometres outside of town. Coco Beach, east in Nungua, is accessible by tro-tro, but the nicest ones to the west all require private transport. Accra has some well established Internet cafes although they can be a little slow. New spots to surf, with faster connection times, are springing up all the time.

    His Majesty's Nightclub, La, Accra
    This is a glitzy place and I love it - go on a Friday night, dress up, and get down to some serious R&B/Hip-Hop. It got all the sexy girls, the BMW driving guys, but not a fraction of the attitude you'd usually get at home.

    Dress Code: Smart - you'll get turned away if you look scruffy (obroni or no obroni, you're not coming in). No trainers etc.

    Macumba nightclub in Accra

    Macumba is the biggest meat market in Accra. Forget this place if you want to have a relaxing evening. For those of you who like it hard, come late at night after 1 AM is OK.
