Cocktails, rooftops and drinks are three distinct words that define the perfect after work happy hour, and if you are ever in Accra, Ghana, there are several hot spots in the city to enjoy the perfect time with friends and colleagues. Here are six places to check out when you are off the clock.
Villa Monticello Roof Top Terrace Café and Bar
Happy hour at the Terrace occurs every evening from 5 – 7pm and is a great avenue to bring team members and other colleagues together for an afterhours bonding sesh. Other fun things to look forward to include live music and comedy on Tuesday nights.
1A Mankata Avenue Link, Airport Residential Area.
Django Bar (Rockstone’s Office)
This place throws “Shoki” dance contests Naija/Ghana style, who wouldn’t want in? The newly revamped Django Bar is the perfect spot to see and be seen after work, and offers plenty of lounging space well into the evening.
Osu Avenue Extension.
Popularly known as the hottest bar in Accra, where it is completely hard to talk about anything business related. Patrons typically enjoy mingling over drinks before heading over to the dance floor, a choice for many who decide to stay late into the evening.
Number 8, 5th Circular Road.
If you are looking for more grit – you know, a place where you can really get into a pint or two, far away from the more flashy spots in town, Lizzy’s is where it’s at. There may be something comforting about letting your hair down after work without worrying about who is around you.
Cantonments Road, Osu.
For those in need of a more casual and laid back experience, Smollensky’s is a rare find in the hustle and bustle of the city. It features a view of the city skyline and has a great seafood menu if you are in to a glass of wine with a side of calamari.
Floor 5, Liberation Road.
Monsoon is known for its hype, and draws in crowds of locals and expats to its active night scene. It is especially full of life in Fridays with a live DJ on the scene that will make you forget about those pending deadlines, even if for a moment.
41 Cantonments Road, Oxford Street.
