    Adult spots in Rua de Bagamoyo: Red light district of Maputo

    by georeiser Updated Sep 23, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rua de Bagamoyo in the Baixa area is the Red Light District of Maputo. Actually it's only a small street with 4-5 bars and a strip club.

    The street is a hangout for prostitutes, so keep away if you don't like it.

    Africa Bar: Africa Bar

    by georeiser Updated Aug 27, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Africa Bar was recommended in a website. It's a well known nightclub located on avenida 24 de Julho and Karl Marx street, 5 minutes walk from the city centre.

    I came there on a thursday night at 10PM, and the queue to get in was enormous. The guests at this place were mainly high class Mocambicanos in nice clothes.
    Entrance cost about 100 metacais (4 USD). I didn't go inside because of the queue...

    THE KING OF MOZ BEERS: OUT FOR A BEER?

    by DAO Updated Aug 6, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Mozambique has several locally produced beers. In my humble opinion, ask for 2M which is the best of 3 brands. I found the others to be poor and swill respectively. 2M is cheaper and more ready available than imports.

    Take no chances with your beer buzz. 2M.

    You can even make hand symbols for the bartender when you are too drunk to speak.

    T3: The night life in T3

    by georeiser Updated Jul 9, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    T3 is a suburban area in Maputo and is usually not visited by foreigners. The night life in the dusty streets of T3 are mostly in small bars. Burning barrels outside the bars and cafes replace lights in the night. The African atmosphere is genuine.

    Cocunuts Disco: Cocunuts Disco

    by georeiser Updated Jul 9, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cocunuts Disco was recommended in a website, so I went there one night. It's a well known nightclub between Mira Mar Beach and Costa do Sol beach, 5 kilometer (10 minutes drive) from the city centre.

    Entrance cost about 7 USD and include one drink. One beer cost about 4 USD. The place is almost empty before 10 PM. They play rap, beat and Hip-Hop. Some music from mozambique, but mostly from America.

    The guests at this place were mainly high class Mocambicanos. A couple of them parked their SUV and Mercedes outside the entrance, and gave the keys to the guard.

    Ordinary local people can not afford to party at this place. I think the whole place is puffed up, and this it not the place to go if you like to be with the locals in a natural setting.
    Holiday Inn, Maputo Beach Hotel is located in the nearby.

    Coconuts Live: Dance the night away

    by Ramonq Written Aug 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a huge nightclub, with three large video screens and a vast dance floor in the centre. There is a VIP lounge in the mezzanine overlooking the dancefloor like an atrium. The drinks are reasonable and it can get packed on the weekends. It gets really lively after midnight. Before that, its empty. If you're into dancing to African hiphop beat, then Coconut Live is for you. Definitely for the younger crowd.

    Dress Code: Club wear.

    Mundos: Nice ambiance by night

    by MarioPortugal Updated Sep 10, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On top of being one of my favourite eatery places in the whole city of Maputo (click here to read my Tip on Mundos' restaurant), Mundos is also a place that I love to come to hang out for nightlife.

    Mundos offers a nice ambiance to hang out. It's a great place to chat and meet new people.

    Beer on tap costs 40 MTn a pint (approx 1.3 Euros).

    Dress Code: Casual

    There used to be a place...

    by Maputosimon Written Oct 19, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There used to be a place called 'Buzio' down on the beach, and I was almost a permanent resident there from 11pm until 5am every day from 1987 to 1991! It's a bar/nightclub with a tin roof and grass walls, all on an iron frame - the warm wind does wonders & keeps you dancing & drinking for hours longer than any indoor club's air conditioning could! A close second is 'Zambi' - I preferred eating there, but always ended up at Buzio.... If you've got more money & less taste than you need, go to 'Sheik'. In my day, an obscenely expensive, tacky basement club near the President's palace & Hotel Polana with too many glitter balls and mirrors, perfectly designed for middle-aged ex-pats (sorry if that's you)! Another variation on this theme, but nowhere near as bad, is the cocktail bar at 'Polana-mar' - the only place I knew where they could mix cocktails properly! Cheap beer in a slightly classier atmosphere than most local bars was to be obtained around the corner from my school & apartment - the downstairs bar near the roundabout at Hotel Cardoso.
    See above!

    Dress Code: Whatever you want, except the 'expat' places, but expats wear the same Khaki chinos & open-collar shirts, anyway!

    The 2M beer taste good. And it's very cheap. You can buy it everywhere, and there is no age limit to drink. ("2M" is pronounced "dos-M"). Cheers!
