SIDE DOOR...IT IS RIGHT NOW THE BEACH AND HAS LIVE MUSIC AND DANCING.
IRISH PUB IS PRETTY POPULAR...
AND IF YOU LIKE GOING TO CLUBS...ASK THE LOCALS WHAT GOOD CLUBS THEIR ARE...DON'T GO TO STRAWBERRIES, IT IS VERY DIRTY...
BUT KEEP ASKING PEOPLE AND THEY WILL TELL YOU WHERE TO GO...
BOOMERANG: Situated in the Caprice building in Kpehe not far from Kwame Nkrumah Circle. Packs a good crowd on Friday and Saturday with with a good mix of Accra's affluent youth.Music style is a mix of R&B & Hiplife for Fri.& Sat. and Fracophone mix on Thu.
Gate '20,000 cedis.
It always explodes with people on weekends and it is a very popular spot with the inhabitants of Accra.
Dress Code: You need to be gently dressed with your pair of shoes.
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.
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 Club in Accra, mainly for foreigners. In Africa, you go to clubs to meet young nice girls. Best girls are in Macumba.
Gate fee: 20000 Cedis and 25000 for Friday and Satutday nights.
Plenty of sexy girls, but you will have to pay. It is a kind of tradition to make a gift to girls, as a foreigner you can give 200.000 cedis or best pay in dollars. If you bring them in a big hotel, they can charge you more.
But remember, all of them dream to be Julia Roberts and you Richard Gere in 'Pretty woman'.
There are a lot of dancings and night clubs emerging in Accra, a little bit everywhere, however, they open and close after some few months. Macumba is the real one, has been there for a very long time and will be there.
back in Ghana in 2010
Macumba is still alive but it is no longer the place to be. Barely 50 people on Saturday night. There are now so many night clubs in Accra. Price is 10 cedis, or 100000 old cedis. Is it worth for a empty night club?
Dress Code: Cool
Very nice African atmosphere. This bar on the street atracts a lot of people to chat with. They have a lot of local food and beverages, like the famous Kasapreko. They also have the Gingseng Wine. Try it, 7000 for one bottle.
After that, you spend a great love night...
You can meet everybody, chat with all guys and girls there. The music is also present, and you can meet girls coming from Macumba to drink cheaper.
I remember I already left the place at 8:30 in the morning.
Dress Code: very cool
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.
Smashing night with my fellow travellers!
Is a bit outside of Accra, but only 15minutes max out of the centre once rush hour is over!
Hit the bar at about midnight...played lots of pool and won lots of pool!
Then came the dancing girls! Amazing, but by no means sleazy...lots of couples sitting around / dancing about soaking up the atmosphere.
Lots to drink, a bite to eat a bit of a dance and a refreshing change to the sometimes stressful experience of being out bang in the centre of the city.
Dress Code: No caps! Dress to impress as there is a VIP area!
Vienna City nightclub is located within the arrival and departure halls of the Kotoka International Airport in Accra. They have a bar, poker machines and roulette Tables. In other words, not the best place to stay for newbies coming to Ghana. The entrance is 4 cedis (2,5 USD).
Hush Bar/Labone Shop is ideally located in the Labone district of Accra, facing Chase restaurant. It's a cool place to chill over the week-end or after work.
They have a monthly party called Heavy Warmup hold by two djs that know their stuff !!! Special guest djs are often invited, both african and european. Last time I was there, I've enjoyed an atmosphere and music I haven't found anywhere else in Accra !!
Always worth checking their facebook page for upcoming event : !!
The Heavy Warmup parties continue in 2012 with Heavy Warmup #4 at the end of January. House, Soul, Hip-Hop and Afro Beat, it's almost the only place in Accra to chill and enjoy quality music before going to club !
The only place to dance salsa in accra, I noticed that many of the people who goes there, were students in Cuba and like to dance, There is a nice ambient and if you do not know how to dance, many people would be able to teach you.
Dress Code: Accra is hot at any time, and this is outdoor so be confortable, very casual and ready to sweat plenty.
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.
Star beer comes from Kumasi, and is Ghana's most famous beer. It has been in the Ghanaian market since 1960. Brewed by Guinness Ghana.
