Drinking and nightlife in Mali

  • Nightlife in Bamako

    Le Byblos

    Bamako is a city that comes into its own after dark, and on weekends it's a party town. Clubs don't get going before midnight and close around 06:00. Cover charges (US$9) usually include a drink, and after that drinks cost US$1.80 to US$5.40.

    Bla Bla Bar

    This is Mali's most sophisticated bar, and though regulars lament that it has lost something since being glassed in and blasted with air-con, it's still filled with the bold and the beautiful at weekends.
