You’ll be spoiled for choice if you want to eat, party or socialize your way through Accra. Try some traditional Ghanaian food at a chop bar (small neighborhood eatery) or head to the beach to cool down. Hike the nearby Aburi hills or lounge at a swimming pool in town. Enjoy the arts? Take in a performance at the National Theatre or relax with live music at +233 bar. The Centre for National Culture and Accra Mall are options for retail therapy, and, if you stick around the stores selling locally made goods in The Shop Accra and Elle Lokko, you’ll likely find yourself among creative folk. Start your evening at Republic bar and work your way through Accra’s circuit of bars, lounges and nightclubs. To stay updated on upcoming events, visit or simply ask around. Find fellow expats in the Accra Expats Facebook group or use Meetup to meet like-minded people.
