Bar in Monrovia

Wicker armchairs and loveseats line the wide veranda at the oceanfront Tides, where you get views with style. Inside, find the cocktail list scribbled on a blackboard (try the bissap margarita), a pool table and a long bar beneath a safari-lodge ceiling. The kitchen (sandwiches, cassava fries and crispy fried plantain, known as kelewele) opens after 4.30pm.

There are movie nights and special events.
