Drinking & Nightlife

There is the usual range of sucreries (soft drinks), including the local Top brand, and fresh jus, fruit concoctions with more resemblance to smoothies than normal juice – bear in mind they're usually made with local water and ice. Beer is the favoured poison in bars, with a choice of local brews, Gala and Chari, or Cameroonian Castel. Also popular is bili-bili, a millet beer; cochette is a low-alcohol version.
