    FORODHANI GARDENS: AN EVENING IN THE PARK

    by DAO Updated Dec 22, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As day blends into evening the tour guides and the souvenir sellers begin to fade away with the sun. The dusk and its red rays turn the Old Arab Fort and the stone benches of Forodhani Gardens into a brownish red colour. The grill men move in to barbeque all manner of meat and fish and the cold beer man finds you. There is nothing finer that being in Forodhani Gardens at night. This is Zanzibar at its finest. Just before the sun sets you can see Dhows coming into port and as night falls the lights come on in the gardens. You get a cool breeze form the sea and you can sit anywhere in the grass and enjoy a beer with or without a meal. Sometimes you can see the lights of the cruise ships if they are in the nearby harbour. And you always get a great light show when the stars come out. A relaxing and enjoyable end to a long day of walking and tours!

    Dress Code:
    Your most relaxing clothes.

    Not much nightlife in Stonetown

    by georeiser Updated Jan 5, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is not much nightlife in StoneTown. Bwawani Disco and the bar across the street from Tembo Hotel is the only places I know about. And it was a kind of show in one of the restaurants at the harbour. If it is something more, tell me. I couldn't find it.

    MALINDI GUEST HOUSE ROOF BAR: ON TOP OF THE PORT

    Looking for a super chill out bar with ice cold, cheap beers and a fantastic sea breeze view? The Malindi Guest House has the best rooftop bar of any in Stone Town outside of the very overpriced 5 star hotels. It’s restaurant and bar are in a completely open rooftop that overlooks the port and part of Stone Town. You often have the place to yourself in the off season, but it is super relaxing and you cannot beat the sea breeze. It’s very close to the water. Enjoy!

  • Forodhani Gardens: Forodhani Gardens, Zanzibar

    Disaster! Forodhani Gardens has closed down, apparently for renovation. one of life's memorable experiences is no more. Wednesday 16th January was the last night before it closed. whether the food vendors will come back I don't know, and like most things in Zanzibar in the public sector, any details are a closely guarded secret.

    let me know if the food vendors set up somewhere else, please!

    Dress Code: You can wear what you like, but you won't get any food there! (But please note, Stone Town is a muslim town, and tourists should respect that by covering up)

    Garage Club: Dance in the Garage Club

    by Bregman Written Feb 2, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a tiny place, very well concealed... But, if you're after a night of dancing there are not many choices. The bar is quite basic, so you better load up in some other place and settle for beer here.

    Dress Code: Anything will do
