Entertainment & Nightlife in Tanzania

The nightlife in rural villages won’t be what most of you are accustomed to, but you may be offered some Pombe Kali (�?fierce spirit’): a local brew made from fermented coconut.

In Dar es Salaam, the mix of expats, tourists and locals in Msasani Peninsula makes for a lively after-hours scene. More intrepid travellers should try out local dance clubs in the city centre.

Popular clubs tend rise up with grand openings and close within months of their openings due to mismanagement of lack of economic viability. Some of the most popular clubs are Storm, Much More, Bilicanas, Garden Bistro, QBar (has a pool table and live music and dancing at the weekend), Bar-o-One, and Billiards. The best places are on the Msasani Peninsula. Men beware; you may get a lot of unwanted attention from some women. Smokies Tavern (+255 748 780 567) is also good, with a roof bar and restaurant.

Sweet Easy is a popular bar/club with live music and great food. Thursday nights are packed, sweaty and sociable. Next to the Ugandan High Commission, Trinity is a new-ish bar and club with garden seating and eclectic, danceable music, mostly catering to European tastes.

On the other hand, there are some cheesy nightclubs such as Studi’s Club, Kimweri avenue, Namanga, but few people go there.

On the whole, Dar es Salaam is full of crazy nightlife opportunities, but be warned – the scene is small and after spending a significant amount of time in the city you will discover that it's the same people in the same clubs every weekend. This can be fun or intolerable depending on which side of the gossip you're on.

An evening out starts with the consumption of a large plate of roast goat, chicken, beef mishkaki, or chipsi mayai and ends with the consumption of utumbo (intestine) soup with hot fresh peppers sometime around 6 or 7 am.
