Torpido Tej House

Bar in Lalibela

Also known as Askalech, Torpido serves tej along with traditional azmari song and dance after 8pm. It gets a lot of tourists, but locals usually outnumber them. And unlike the more earthy tej houses, you are ensured good-quality wine – it comes in three strengths. Everyone is expected to dance – it's all in the shoulders…

If you overindulge and can't make it home, there are a few (noisy) guest rooms upstairs.
