    They have a rooftop coffee shop, but they also have a roof top you can literally climb onto where they have the water tanks mounted. I am sure they do not want you to do this, but who’s looking? The very best view of the Old Town at night is up here. I climbed up – very carefully – with a torch (flashlight) and a tripod for my camera. What a fantastic view! I would encourage anyone to at least go and visit the coffee shop, whether they are open or not. The hotel will let anyone who asks politely to climb the stairs to the roof and have a look.

    Hold on tightly to your camera!

    Dress Code: Good climbing shoes if you want to go to the very top.

    take a walk in the old town: sights straight out of 1001 nights

    Let's face it, Sanaa's nightlife is not very exciting - nor were we looking for wild nights. Our favourite night-time activity was so walk around the old town and try not to get lost, as there are very few people out in the streets.

    We enjoyed the sights, and above all the peace and quiet. No traffic, no noise... just some children playing fooball and trying to engage us in a game - which we declined. They might have been tiny toddlers but knew how to kick the ball, unlike us...

    Also, while you you are walking around, look up and see the colourful stained-glass windows lit. A sight to behold. Thousand and one nights...

    Dress Code: Dressed - modestly if possible.

    walking around: Old Sanaa

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sanaa does not offer a lot of night life spots.
    This does not necessary mean that it is a dead city after sunset, infact going around the streets of the old town you'll meet many people around talking, walking and above all kids playing on the street.
    This walk will give you the chance one of the most beautiful night view you'll ever see as, this town and its peculiar buildings take other colours and transform themselves after sunset.
    Any door, any house, any single window is something that let you surprise, and for once, lets you feel away from home.

    Dress Code: Night is pretty cold so consider a sweater or a jaket.

    Russian Club: Out late, Russian style

    by dutchwindmill Updated Feb 13, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Basic bar and dancing, but hey...where's the competition*? Beer and vodka. Mixed audience of Russians, expats, Yemeni men, some women from across the Red Sea. Recently introduced entry fee - for men only, women are free - of YER 2000 (EUR 8), also good for one drink.

    *British Club (Hadda area), but in principle for members and their guests only; Movenpick nightclub (similar to Russian Club, but obviously a lot more fancy); Oasis restaurant at the Taj Sheba hotel (dinner, alcohol and a cheap trio of singers from Latvia or the Philipines).

    Dress Code: No dress code.

    *Movenpick and Taj Sheba should be smar casual or even a little more formal.
