Kampala is considered the party city of East Africa, and its no surprise that Uganda is often ranked in the top 3 biggest alcohol consuming countries in Africa, with an average of 11.93 liters of alcohol consumed each year! The best way to start a night out is with a sundowner drink at Holy Crepe, located on Kololo Hill, with a beautiful panoramic view of the city. Sip on some signature cocktails, as you watch the fiery glow of the sun set and the twinkle of lights as the city comes to life at dusk.
A short decent down to Acacia Avenue, a street featuring some of the popular nightlife spots in town, will bring you to the start of your bar crawl. Take your time moving through the bars along this street, which are all a short walking distance from each other and safe to walk to even at night. Great places to check out during your bar crawl include Bushpig Backpackers, Big Mikes, Bubbles O’Leary, and the Kisimenti junction at the end of the street also features places such as Que Pasa, Sky Lounge, and Just Kicking. Safe Boda’s (Motorbike Taxis) and Ubers are easy to find at the end of your night for a safe ride home.
