Night Life in Ethiopia
Still hugely popular in Ethiopia, traditional azmari night life involves being entertained by a wandering minstrel (the azmari) who ad-libs songs about his audience, and life in general, with witty word play which often has double meanings. There are azmari bets (bars where azmaries regularly perform) throughout the country but good places to catch a performance are Addis Ababa, Bahirdar and Gondar.
Addis Ababa has a large (and growing)number of western-style bars, pubs, jazz bars and nightclubs but outside of the capital evening entertainment of this style is thin on ground(or non -existent).in larger tourist destinations bars are usually sound in hotels that receive large numbers of foreign visitors.
