Drinking and nightlife in Algeria

    Hôtel Suisse

    A highly atmospheric bar where time seems to have ground to a halt in 1931. Half drunk bottles of whisky gather dust behind the wood and mirrored bar and old men slap cards down on the table tops.

    Milk Bar

    The Milk Bar has been around for decades, and during colonial times it was a popular hangout with the French, which is why it was bombed during the opening salvoes of the Algerian War of Independence. Today things are far calmer and it makes a good city centre coffee and snack break option.

    Café Tontonville

    An Algiers institution. You can't beat sitting on the terrace of this cafe admiring the surrounding colonial-era architecture while sipping a strong black coffee.
