A local nightlife hotspot. Expect to mix with a good crowd of locals and tourists. Nice atmosphere and good views from the baclonies. Not for prissy travellers with high expectations. Go let your hair down and have fun if you're young at heart!

Locals come here to drink and have a good time at night, perfect location, next to the ocean, and three floors (Tatu is Kiswahili for 'three'). Friendly bartenders and great music!

This is one of the only places you can head to if you are looking to dance and listen to some music late into the night. The establishment is over three floors, the top is the 'disco'. My group of friends and I, decided to give it a go and were a little bit disappointed. The top floor was so... More

We got here at 11pm+ and stayed here for a few hours as the DJ played reggae songs. Chill out, dance, relax late night and meet others who are also there to relax.

We had fun and fun and fun in this simple and local pub in the hearth of Stone Town. It was our first time in Africa and we could not believe to eat such kind of nice food. The atmosphere is magic and the contest is very nice and ideal for young couples. We will be back soon!

Went here for a meal but cancelled order and left. Music from bar downstairs too loud and restaurant deserted.

We were in the last floor bar. Here you can get the best mojito and caipirinha. The music is great. Best DJ on the island. But if you're just a man's company expect to receive company just in seconds. There are a lot of local subjects which you don't wanna be part of your trip. So try just the cocktails.... More

If you stay in Stone Town you'll probably end up here (either by stumbling upon it, or tout taking you there). An almost Zanzibar institution its three levels delivers dancing, pool playing and live DJ's on some nights. Fun!

We went to the restaurant for dinner - we had tuna carpaccio and avocado salad as starters and it was really delicious. As main course we took burgers - beef and chicken one - also very tasty with home made pastry. After dinner we went for drink to the upper floor and there was nice music, locals and tourists chatting... More
