My new friends in Ain Taya kept saying to me ?lets go for a drink at Charlie Normals!? I thought this was an odd name, but they told me it was THE place in Ain Taya. We arrived at a control parking area and stepped through an arch into a very pleasant garden area with lots of trees, plants and a great atmosphere. Stone tables and reasonable plastic chairs are organised across a large area, so you sometimes have to waive to get service. Outside you can drink alcohol, smoke and enjoy the conversation. The music is at a low volume so you can hear easily and settle in for a night of drinking under the stars. Well except where vegetation hangs down.

They have several choices of beers and a full bar. Not cheap, but no alcohol is cheap in Algeria.

If you are hungry they do have a fantastic restaurant back by the entrance. I enjoyed a great peppercorn steak dish that was awesome. In fact you could even sleep here as its also a hotel.

The real name of this place is Hôtel Le Chalet Normand. But just ask anyone to point to ?Charlie Normals? and you can walk here from just about anywhere in Ain Taya.

I ended up have a few pleasant evenings here. In fact this was by far the best bar I saw in Algeria. If you are in Ain Taya ? don?t miss out.

Dress Code:
Modest. Even if it is a bar - you are in Algeria.
