Drinking & Nightlife

If you’re pining for a beer, try a locally brewed Harar brand, a light-bodied lager, or Hakim stout. And of course, you’ll want to try Harari coffee: it’s hailed as among the best in the world. Cafes are plentiful in the new town, and most accommodation options have bars. If you want to rub shoulders with the locals, make a beeline for National Hotel or Samson Hotel, both of which have a nightclub.
