Sudan Nightlife: 12 reviews and 8 photos
Nightlife as most people know it doesn't really exist in Sudan. Sharia Law means no alcohol, so there are no (legal) bars and certainly no nightclubs. In some of the displaced settlements you might find some Southern style parties with Congolese music and illegal liquor but this is rare, extremely dangerously illegal and not something tourists will see.
As a foreigner in Khartoum you can score invites to the regular expat house parties and gatherings if you want, where you'll find plenty of alcohol and occasionally music and dancing. Unlike the Southerner's parties there's not much chance of a police raid here and their existence is well tolerated provided it stays indoors.
Overall, Sudanese nightlife is pretty much restricted to sharing tea with friends, going to the cinema to watch an old Bollywood film... you get the idea! When I arrived I really thought I'd miss nightclubs and going to the pub far more than I actually did - it's just something you get used to.
