    The Friday Night Disco's at the A.P Canteen have a reputation for being fun and wild, and is the only place to go out late at night.

    Main activity is dancing, getting drunk and screw around with the bargirls under the big trees outside. Without doubt a pleasure for import citizens and visitors only. Tourists are usually welcome.

    There's a small entrance fee and beers are around EUR 1 a bottle.

    Sometimes there's a disco on Saturdays as well, at another Police Quarters more inland. I have not been here but I reckon it's a comparable experience.

    Lamu Disco: Friday night Boogie Boogie

    In Lamu there is very little nightlife like the sort you might usually find whilst travelling. There are no pubs, bars or nightclubs. Alcohol is hard to come by. However on Friday nights there is a local disco which I believe is run by the police. There are a couple of possible locations - you can find out where it is by asking any of the young locals about it, they will be more than willing to help you out and in most cases, join you. The venues are partly open air so that if it rains you may be treated to a 'free shower from allah' as one local happily told us as it started to rain. The local boys....especially the dhow captains and their friends love to dance and make friends with tourists-especially women. They are nice enough and its a great experience.

    Dress Code: Wear anything you like, but dress for dancing!!
