Uganda Nightlife

  • Have a boogie to the prez

    In November 2010 Uganda was gripped with election fever for the upcoming presidential elections. Nightclubs up and down the land were bouncing to the sound of the incumbent Yoweri Kaguta Museveni's rather impressive rap record. Sadly his poiltics aren't as good as his rapping. Check out one of a few vids for the tuneM7rap

All instruments are hand made, from wood and leather, and yet they perform superior tunes.The show was conducted by Okello and the guy is great. It was funny...

Do not, however, expect much fun on sundays because most of locals stays at home in that day healing their wounds after tempestuous sunday. Actually, it's local habbit to get drunk on sunday evenings, my first neighbor invited me to join him and his companions and get "dead drunk" as he...

  • Best boozer in Fort Portal

    This is the best watering hole in Fort Portal. It’s been around for years apparently under several owners. Quite often you'll be lucky to get in the door if there is a big English Premiership Footie match on the box. Wednesday afternoon sessions seem to be a bit of an institution in the Gluepot for many of the white population in the area, for...

  • Party in the middle of no where!

    Located at Bujugali falls at Jinja, the Nile river explorers bar is one of the liveliest places in the area! We visited after hearing that 25 Americans were staying and deciding to make a night of it. The site is just a small bar with a roof, located right next to the Nile (the original launch site for Adrift many years ago) but has great music, a...

    Rhino Bar is located at Sheraton Hotel.Most of the people going out here, are residents of the hotel (as it was my case). So it is a quite international place.It is fine for having a drink if you're tired and don't want to go out (if you're a resident in the hotel).In my case I felt a bit strange dancing in the same place where I had my breakfast...

    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...

  • 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. In top discos you have to be well dressed.

  • 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.

    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...
