Few Addis Joints I Want To Share! (Addis Ababa)


I have been here only a few days this time and have discovered some new spots.

Jolly Bar at Arat Kilo: I was there last Friday and it was really happening. Nice crowd of locals and expats with a popular live band. Set up is nice.

Jittu Vegetable/Fruit Market in Old-Airport area: An outlet for locally produced high-quality produce that are predominantly being exported to Mid-East market. Prices are very reasonable and is another venture of the billionaire Sheik.

Jazzamba Jazz Club: It is in Taitu Hotel in Piassa. I was there on a Wednesday night and it was totally packed with standing room only. A popular local act was playing. Didn't enjoy standing around for Protected content and next time will make sure to get there early by 8pm to get one of those nice couch seats.

Please share some of your favorites and who knows, we can meet up at one. I will add more as I check them out.
