Sidi Bou Hadid: Kasbah nights
Sidi Bou Hadid is the most famous cafe in Hammamet and the target of every visitors, a must see place.It is located in the old town and is leaning against the Kasbah, which dominated Hammamet. Cafe is actually located on the coast, overlooking the Bay of Hammamet. It is a very well-attended place in the city because, in addition to cold drinks, a visitor will be refreshed by a slight breeze from the sea.
Cafe is well filled throughout the day and in the evenings it is almost impossible to find a free space. Sidi Bou Said is one of those places in which one come to see and to be seen.
Shakespears: Awful pub
I previously placed a tip about avoiding this pub in the Tunisia guide. I have since had a VT message from the owner stating that no one has ever complained about the entertainment in this pub.
The terrible entertainment at this awful pub was one of the main talking points at our hotel since it was closeby. I repeat avoid it!
My tip from Tunisa guide:
There is a bar called Shakespeirs pub in Hammammet which advertises nightly entertainment. For the sum of 10 Dinar you get to watch probably the worst pub act I have ever seen. It was supposed to be a drag act. Two guys dressed in womens clothes miming to really poor quality recordings .......... I just didnt get the point or the entertainment value. It is really dreadful, other people in our hotel mentioned that some of the other acts were also really bad. Avoid it, it is just a rip off. The draught beer was also flat, if you must go here drink bottles of beer.
There is great nightlife in...
There is great nightlife in Hammamet. There are many cafés, bars, restaurants and discos. After dark the town is full of people, crowd everywhere. By 2 a.m. it's calm down.
In the evening go to a café (for example at the Kasbah) or the Canary (delicious ice-cream and pancake, but hard to find table) then you can go to a disco (for example Hotel Venus - free on weekdays). At the discos there is also arabic music, sometimes.
Brauhaus Le Berbère #1: Brewery!
A brewpub in the city centre and of course we were bound to visit!
It's right next to the medina and very easy to find, a huge beer glass on the roof.
Beer was a little unusual, german names - helles and dunkel - not really like anything I've found in Germany, not unpleasant though and an awful lot better than the usual local offering of Celtia.
If in Hammammet has to be worth a visit.
Brauhaus Yasmine: Brewpub!
A brewpub in the Yasmine area of Hammamet.
Tried a couple of different beers here, the helles was pretty average with an unusual taste but marzen much better, enjoyed that one (or two).
Just firing up the pizza oven as we left, no time to try one unfortunately.
Anyway if you're in the Yasmine area it's a good friendly place to visit.
Yasmine: Interesting Nightlife
Yasmine area has more places for nightlife.
Our routine was: a drink in Sinbad Hotel's Bar (not cheap though). And then either el Pascha. Calypso is also a well-known club.
Both are the most lively night clubs. You may encounter a worldwide known DJ or a traditional Tunisian guy who makes Arabic music. :)) That's the surprise! We've been to both of them..
You have to be careful if you are women traveling without a male company. People are more than friendly sometimes.
Dress Code: No spesific dress code for the clubs.. Casual dressing is ok. You may wear from a night dress to jeans with hawaianas..
There are many bars and night places in Hammamet, though some of them were closed in Easter.
In this one we had a nice warm mint tea.
