Accra is the capital of Ghana and also the largest city. Night life in Accra is quite fun during weekends and holidays with Osu by far being the liveliest part of Accra for entertainment. Many of Accra’s best nightclubs and bars can be found here. Here are some of the night standout venues that I recommend.

Republic Bar and Grill

The republic bar remains one of the most happening bars in Accra right now, thanks to its relaxed, music-forward approach to the good things in life: alcohol, fried food and really great music. It’s a tiny space that tumbles out onto the street when things really kick off late on a Friday or Saturday.

A chic lounge bar with well-mixed cocktails and one of the best selections of tapas in Ghana. Busiest on Friday and Saturdays when a DJ spins on the decks and regulars cut some shapes among the packed crowds.

 

Raggae night at Labadi beach

Every Wednesday, people go to Labadi beach for the great Reggae Night. Live bands and DJ entertain the whole night a crazy party on the beach where everything can happen. Lots of people get drunk and high but it nevertheless remains quiet and safe. Entrance fee is Ghs10

 

Shisha lounge

A beautiful outdoor area complete with tree house style upper level. Wood fired pizzas are on the menu and the bar comes alive at night with a great club vibe inside the air conditioned bar area. If you love smoking shisha, then this is the place to be! I bet you’re going to love the night life in Accra.
