Here’s What Maputo Nightlife Has To Offer

In our new Globe Trotter series, Viral Travel reviews all the best places to see, eat, and stay at, in every country of the world!

This week we visit: Mozambique


Maputo is Mozambique’s capital and largest city. It has always boasted a more relaxed atmosphere than the larger cities in South Africa, for instance, taking things at its own pace. Over the last few years, the city has seen influx of foreign workers and diplomats and there is no doubt that the city is changing. One thing Maputo always had was nightlife. It still has it. Heaps of it.

Coconuts is Maputo’s most famous nightclub and also one of the most incredible in this part of the world. It is a ginormous complex that can easily fit thousands and if you visit it on weekends, you will have some of the best times you can hope to have in your life.

Africa Bar is another Maputo classic, a place where it does not matter if you are inside or outside. Quite often, there is far more fun to be had outside, talking to people and drinking booze that is much cheaper than the “official” stuff they sell inside. Ice Lounge is a more upscale place, with hefty prices and a crowd that is fancier than some people will be into. Of course, there are innumerable bars to be found in Maputo too, but we will let you discover these on your own.
