Kapital: For playing pool
This nightclub is located in kabalagala area, an area full of places to go out.
From the street, Kapital seems to be a small and dirty place... but that's a false image, as it is one of the biggest nightclubs in Kampala, and where there are at least 7 pool tables where you can spend all the evening and night playing.
There are several TV screens in it as well, where you can enjoy some football matches. Mainly from the Premier League.
Rock Garden: Stressing
Rock garden is located at Speke Hotel.
There are two areas in it, the restaurant and the nightclub.
The nightclub is partly open-air, so here you can enjoy the fantastic weather that Uganda has.
The music is international, and the place is quite big, althought in the weekends use to be packed.
The bad point, or good for some people, is that when you haven't even had time yet for ordering a drink you have been "welcomed" by several girls. It is quite stressing, as you'll have all the time some girls talking with you asking for drinks and "other" things...
I have no idea: Find a bar......
Africans do like their cold beer. Wherever you are you're sure to find a place selling some. One of the places in this photo is bar. I have no idea what it was cold. We were the only customers that night.
Muyenga Road, Kampala
Unfortunately I don't have a picture for this one but we stumbled upon this great road in Kampala while ina taxi one night. Great number fo bars one one street. Some serving food and greta music playing all around. This a great place to spend an evening.
Dress Code: Whatever you want.

Just Kicking: Sports for the armchair sportsperson
This is a lively bar in an area with lots of restaurants etc. It shows most English Premiership games as well as rugby etc, so a proper sports bar. You can sit inside and watch the box, or outside on the patio. It's a lively place with a nice atmosphere.
Rock Garden Cafe: Drinks, dancing, late nights etc
This place is at Speke's Hotel in Kampala. You can either sit outside just watching the world (and the goings-on inside), or stand inside where you find a huge bar and a dancefloor. It is a lively place, lots of Kamapala's young and beautiful people can be seen strutting their stuff on the dancefloor ....
if you can talk you can sing and If you can walk you can dance. Now then, off to the old industrial area to Club Silk and/or Ange Noir. The 2 Disocthekues are relatively close to each other.
If you want you can stay in Equatorial Hotel and go Lords, a quiet exclusive location.
Dress Code: just be cute.
Live and good
Kampalas´night life comprises of discos, Casinos, theater, beach parties and live bands.
I recommend a visit to the theater or one of the top live bands. The shows are lively and will fascinate you. English is widely used in shows so that you don´t need to worry about the language.
Dress Code: In top discos you have to be well dressed.
The Vision Empire in Mbarara: The Vision Empire in Mbarara
Actually, it ain't so unique. It looks very much (eeriely identical actually) to every other nightclub that I went to in Kampala, but it is the only one in Mbarara, and everyone you meet in town will ask you whether you've been there or not. On fridays you could get a bottle of Club for a 1000 shillings, so that was a decent deal.
Just Kicking, Al's Bar: Just Kicking, Al's Bar
Great atmosphere, with both locals and mzungus. sport-mad barstaff and they will show all major sporting events if they can get it. pool, darts etc. Beer quite cheap too..........fantastic sausages and good biltong too.
Al's bar -> how do I describe this place? Anyone who has been to Kampala must have been here. One of the wildest bars I have ever been to anywhere....period. It is really a nightclub/bar which is open from about 10pm to about 8am. Great music (rock, pop etc), beer is reasonable, good food until late, wild, wild people! Guys, if you are white and unattached, you will have half of Kampala's girls hanging off you! I kid you not. Luckily I went here with my girlfriend but I didn't escape their attentions! if you can get past this, you can have a brilliant time here. The clientele is both locals and foreigners. Ask a taxi driver to take you to a place called Half London and you'll be there! This place is a riot, don't miss it!!
Dress Code: None really
Didn't do this much (since I...
Didn't do this much (since I was living in a little village with no electricity or running water), but I'll tell you what I know. I've been to Ange Noir, a club in the industrial area. It was a lot of fun and full of young, energetic Ugandans dancing to some good European, American, and African music. Club Silk and Sensations are similar, so I hear.
If you get the chance, go to an African concert. Some of my favorite artisits are Lucky Dube, Kanda Bongo Man, Luciano, Afrigo Band, and Ndere Dance Troupe. If they are performing then I highly recommend going.
As mentioned above, attending a cultural dance concert by the Ndere Dance Troupe is HIGHLY recommended. They perform at the Nile Hotel once a week (call or ask at the front desk). Admission is cheap and you can enjoy a nice beer while you're sitting outside under the start listening to the wonderful beat of Ugandan drums.
Drink Nile Special
My number on nightlife tip is to drink Nile Special. The national beer of Uganda. So good I brought some home. It didn't last long though.......
