Most bars in Zanzibar Town are connected to hotels, with a few notable stand-alone exceptions. They all serve local and international brands of beer and other drinks, and several offer cocktails or mocktails involving local fruits and spices. Many hotels also have a 'teahouse' (traditional open-sided room at the top of a building) where you can enjoy a drink with spectacular views.
Feature: Catching Sunset
One of the best ways to start an evening in Stone Town is sipping a drink while watching the sun set over the ocean. But if you want a genuine sundowner, choose your spot carefully as the sun’s position changes through the year. Locations on the southwest side of Stone Town, like Africa House Hotel, get the best sunset views from October to March, while for locations on the northwest side, like Mercury's, it's best from April to September.
