Simba: Gambling nights
There are couple of casinos in the central part of the town but my advise is, stay away from them unless you don't know what to do with your money. There is one rule in such a places only, they win you loose.
Dress Code: It's the most funny part regarding casinos, atenders should wear decent cloths, whatever it means. They probably feel much better when fleecing money from client dressed in a "decent" cloths.
O'learys: Most popular
Although very popular club, especially within the white community of Kampala, I didn't like it much. For my money, it is overcrowded and the music is sort of midle of the road. Besides, O'Learys looks alike to average or even bellow it pubs you can see all over Europe.
If mzungu (white), the admission to this club will cost you 5.000 shillings, about 2,5 euros, not much but quite alot of money for the locals who cannot afford it.
Rock Garden: Good music and well positioned
Rock Garden was my favourite nightlife spot where I spent most of my Kampala nights. It is perfectly positioned, right in the heart of the city and a foot from the restaurants where I used to have my dinners. Besides, one part of a club is a restaurant, open until 11:00pm, and offering very good food. I strongly recommend grilled tilapia.
Admission to this club is free, while the drinks, comparing to other clubs, is cheap. Just to mentioned, imported Tusker beer (good Kenyan beer) costs 300 shillings only.
The music is very good, mostly Ugandan or from other African countries, mixed with excellent Indian music and inevitable Abba hits. Abba is the most popular group in Kampala, everywhere you go around the sound of Abba is following you.
Bubbles O'Leary: Going Irish...
Bubbles as it is affectionately known, is an Irish pub, tucked away on a backroad of Acacia Avenue, close to the Golf course. The night to be here is Friday, with some 70s/80s throwback music. Barbecue and a nice stew are available, so are the usual beverages. Close the session with an Irish Coffee, before heading to Club Rouge or the Casino.
Dress Code: Wear clothes...If you come naked, people will probably laugh at you...
