So if you are a resident no problem to pop in at any open time, but otherwise call and book to pass hotel security. An attempt at a trendy London wine bar (if you like that sort of thing in an Africa setting). Okay for a pre meal drink, selection of cocktails, well prepared, but pricy. Evening of our visit loaded or pre-loaded with hotel visitors. Says the internet is fast, but very noisy for any serious work and there are no hotels with other than token IT connections, so go elsewhere by taxi.

Being in the Kombo Beach Hotel the bar competes with the hotel for business, yes it provides football and sports coverage and yes plenty of drinks but could be a lot better, it's pool table is a mess with its pool cues with no ends on them.
If the club played more music late on maybe people wouldn't go elsewhere.
But after sunbathing all day maybe an early night is needed.

Nice friendly bar, privately owned in the grounds of the Kombo Beach Hotel. Has all the live football on big screens if that's your thing, which it is for us. The owner was away but his partner Karalina (sorry about the spelling!) was a wonderful, friendly host and very helpful with advice when asked. It was quiet as it was the end of season but we do plan to go back to Gambia next year in a busier period and we will definitely go back to the Liv Bar!

Just back from a week at Kombo Beach, Liv Bar is well located as it's housed in the Kombo Beach hotel an directly overlooks the pool and the sea beyond it

The price of the bottled beer was the same as the hotels own bar (the most expensive we found in town) however with faster, more reliable Wi-Fi, and crystal clear sports channels, going to Liv Bar is an easy choice to make

The only negative was the young tattooed barman who I didn't see crack a smile during the whole of my trip, the young lady though was cheerful, friendly and welcoming throughout.

Liv bar by the pool in the Kombo beach hotel has better prices and faster wifi than the Kombo provides. Run by Ali, Karolina and Adam it's a friendly family business.
Happy hour most evenings and Ali will get take away in for you if you want. They do a great calzone pizza.

The Liv bar is in the centre of the Kombo beach hotel and competes directly with the Kombos main bar, its great for watching televised sports in and during happy hour, julbrew is 15 Dl a bottle cheaper than the hotel, which gives it a slight advantage. the staff are very friendly and helpful and the free WIFI is very strong.

My partner went to Livs most nights and enjoyed every visit. The staff were helpful & friendly, drinks tasty & reasonably priced and the WiFi actually had some speed behind it so i could catch up on work.

Lovely bar and staff but drinks twice the price of the kombo beach hotel in which it is located all also if they see you drinking in the hotel bar they change their wifi code so you can't access theirs even though we spent over c £1000 in their bar in 2 weeks. Well over priced for the country

The excellent wifi we provide is obviously to entice clients to use our establishment and not when you are patronizing our competitor. simple business tactics Our competitor doesn't want to invest in a good wifi , their wifi hardly works, so We don't see why we should give our wifi to their clients, use our facility and you are more than welcome to use our FAT FREE LIV WIFI. we invest in better equipment better cocktails better TVs for sports . and our prices are the exact same price as our next door neighbor as they are our landlord and we maintain the same prices for the same drinks. hope to see you again and hope you enjoy our excellent wifi
