Drinking and nightlife in Victoria Falls (town)

    Stanley's Terrace

    The Terrace at the stately Victoria Falls Hotel just brims with English colonial ambience. High tea is served to a postcard-perfect backdrop of the gardens and Victoria Falls Bridge, with polished silverware, decadent cakes and three-tiered trays of finger sandwiches. (Cucumber? Why yes, of course.) A jug of Pimms makes perfect sense on summer day at US$24. The only thing missing is croquet.

    Buffalo Bar

    Unquestionably the best sundowner spot in town; enjoy a gin-and-tonic on its outdoor terrace overlooking distant animals on the plains of Zambezi National Park. Part of the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, it's a good pre-dinner spot if you've got a booking at the hotel's Boma restaurant. Otherwise come during the day for the 1pm vulture feeding.

    Shoestrings Bar

    Popular with locals and backpackers alike, Shoestrings is the most lively spot for a drink in town. It's fairly laid-back during the week, but on Fridays and Saturdays it feels likes a house party as the dance floor gets a lot of action. Non-guests have to pay US$3 admission, but that includes a drink.

    Three Monkeys

    About to open its doors in late 2016 is this cocktail bar/restaurant set up within a 1935 Rhodesian railway carriage. It's by the same team who run 26 on Park in Bulawayo, so it's definitely one to look out for.
