When placing your drink order, consider trying tej, the national drink which is brewed from honey, or tela, which is like a beer. Another delicious choice is a juice spritz—fruit pulp served in layers, usually avocado, guava, banana, papaya, or mango. This delicious concoction is served in a glass and eaten with a spoon.
Addis Live - near Atlas Hotel traffic lights...on EU road on the right is also highly recommended.
Visitors should take in some night spots where Ethiopian music is played. The Habasha Restaurant on Bole Road has a lively atmosphere and good dancers. For azmari music, traditional music played on traditional instruments, such as the single stringed violin, without amplification, try Taji Bait on Micky Leland, near the Axum Hotel end. The area of Kasanchis has many azmari bait, it's possible to do an "azmari crawl", going from one house to anbother.
