Drinking and nightlife in Burkina Faso

  • Nightlife in Ouagadougou

    De Niro

    This jazz bar is a gem: the music is great, the decor original (with fab photos, posters and two beautiful pool tables), the terrace breezy and the service super friendly.

  • Nightlife in Banfora

    Le Mistral

    The outdoor terrace bar is open every night and is a relaxed place for a beer, but what really draws the crowds to this place is the indoor (air-con) nightclub, open Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights (CFA500; doors open at 9pm). The bar is located southeast of town on one of the sealed roads.

  • Nightlife in Bobo-Dioulasso


    Come and shake your stuff to coupé-décalé (Ivoirian beats) and other Afro-beats at the funky Provencale. The Sunday matinée is particularly popular.
