Addis Ababa nightlife is a mixture of beautiful girls, Cocktails, Loud Music, Casinos and cinemas. The nightlife in Addis Ababa starts at around 11:00 p.m. till dawn. The clubs and bars of Addis Ababa serve the national drink of Ethiopia, tej, which is alcohol made from honey and tela. You can also find all the international brands of beers and spirit like Guinness and Johnnie Walker.

Some pubs and bars offer live band performances. The bars range from high end bars like Gaslight in Sheraton hotel to casual ones but full of fun like Memo. Though Gaslight resembles a Western disco, be sure to observe the dress code by leaving your sneakers and jeans at home. Platinum at Mikeyleland Road is great night spot.

Flirt Lounge and Club Deep  should be on your list of  great night spots too .You can get the perfect mix of upscale comfort, plus a variety of drinks, at the Black Rose (including Jack Danniels, my favourite!). It has  also a strict dressing code that does not include sneakers and jeans. But there some other casual chilled lounges like the Meda sports bar and Grill. If you are the one who loves dancing then club Memo is the place for you, with its huge dance floor and latest tracks that will keep you on your feet the entire night.

If you are a jazz fan then you should be at the Black Rose on Thursday nights.  Club Illusion is very popular, with inexpensive drinks, great music, and a hopping dance floor.  For more dancing without the glam, try Memo, or go there to enjoy a drink in the outdoor courtyard. At the Meda Sports Bar & Grill, relax at the spacious bar and catch a game on television. Guests can also enjoy a more intimate setting in the downstairs lounge, or partake in a meal in the upstairs loft.
