Day by Day guide to the best Places in Dar: Want to Go Out in Dar?

In Dar there are so many nightclubs that visitors have a good choice of places to go to. However, the clubs change regularly and locals in Dar seem to change their preferences for different clubs.

Dress Code: Just look Cool Man!

Address: Various

Directions: All the places I have mentioned are well known to all taxi drivers. Be prepared to pay a maximum of TSh5000-TSh6000 to go anywhere in Dar. Any more than that and you will be ripped off.

The Corner Bar (also Known as Royal Chole): The Best Bar in the World (Honest!)

Ok, this may seem bizarre but of all the great bars in Dar Es Salaam (and there are lots!) I prefer a bar that is run and frequented mostly by locals.

It is in Masaki district on Chole Road. It goes by the name of Royal Chole Social Club, The Corner Bar, The International School, or Bengas' Place (He is the owner).

There is always a welcoming smile there from the workers and irrespective of the time of day, you will always feel comfortable.

It is a local bar though. This means that it isn't air-conditioned, the bar is a bit of a shack, sometimes there's no electricity. But who cares when the chat is so good!

Ask for Mishikaki (kebabs) or Kuku ya Kinyege (Local Chicken). They are fantastic.

It closes at 11pm during the week and around 1am at the weekend.

Dress Code: No dress code. Just go the way you like.

Address: Chole Road, Masani district

Directions: Ask a taxi driver if they know the corner bar in Masaki on Chole Road. A lot of drivers will know it. However, if they are confused say it is near the International Business School. They will know then.

Theme: Eating and Drinking
