Dakar in detail

Drinking & Nightlife

There are bars to suit every taste in Dakar, but the glam venues are mainly in Les Almadies. Live-music venues with dance floors are extremely popular, but nights on the dance floor start late: most places don't start to boogie before 1am. And always – always – overdress.

Bars are usually free, but cover charges at clubs and live music venues are roughly CFA4000 to CFA10,000.
