Watch out for Terrorists

Nice place, especially Salsa night. However, it was bombed by terrorists earlier this year. Not good. Oh, and the pizza is excellent.

My idea is that this is the place you go to for late night food. It's usually very quiet early in the evenings and doesn't usually pick up until around 2200 hrs. The menu is not terribly exciting but then, who wants exotic food late at night? Pizzas are generally the way to go. Drinks are cold and staff are... More

La Terrasse is where I go when I'm not sure where else to go in BKO. It's a big open terrace that has a bit of relaxed sports bar theme (huge TV always showing soccer) but with enough food options that you can go before the party's started elsewhere, eat, drink, and then stick around for the live music that...

Patio bar above VIP and new Cotton club on blabla street in hippodrome. Surprisingly not bad for mosquitoes! Offers decent priced drinks (prices between maquis and club prices) and, lately, friends made me discovered their burgers! Food is good, great prices and good quality. Serves late too. Very popular expat hangout, but also great to meet people.

In the heart of the Hippodrome, the Terrace is an institution. It is a large open space with a bar and tables. Very attractive space complete with faux Djenné architechure, hanging plants, blown-glass, and thatch on one end. Thu-Sat nights there is dancing, often with Salsa music. (Salsa is really a phenomenon here in Bamako.) The menu is nothing special... More

Located on the busy Hippodrome Street. This is a busy bar with disco. Music the night I was there was mostly latin. It is a mixture of local bar with a number of resident expatriates as regulars. The place has a few 'girls' hanging around but they do not pester you if you are not interested. Typical bar food menu... More
