Mercury’s

Bar in Zanzibar Town

Named for Queen vocalist Freddie Mercury, this is a scruffy but popular waterside hang-out for daytime drinks, evening drinks or sundowners in-between. If you get bored of the view over the beach and port, there's usually football on TV, and live music most Saturdays. Food – in the pizza, pasta and curry vein (mains Tsh16,500 to Tsh25,000) – is also served.
