This is a fascinating part of Accra, but it can be not a little rough. Go with a local friend who knows the city. All that you can expect of a city. Think of New Your's Soho or its namesake in London.

Osu is great. Good places to eat/drink. the best part is meeting the kids and hearing peoples stories on the street. We let off some fireworks aswell that was fun. Keep your phone and money hidden.
