Entertainment in Libya

Gazelle Café, occupies a pretty position next to a 1920s-era fountain. It's good for a tea or nargileh.
Opposite the Ottoman clock tower in the medina is Tripoli's outstanding traditional teahouse. You can sit outside, but make sure you check out the ground-floor room with its eclectic and distinctly musical themes - an old electric guitar, an archaic juke-box and gramophone. There are good views over the square from upstairs. Not surprisingly, this place has become a favourite of tour groups, but enough locals also turn up for it to feel authentic.
They claim never to close but we didn't turn up at 04:00 to confirm.
