The Oxford Street neighborhood in Osu is the town’s busiest entertainment district. There is no dearth of diversity with over a dozen distinct nightclubs (most of them are hidden away along side alleys). Taxi drivers should know where the following are, but if they don’t, simply ask a young-looking individual on Oxford Street.

Tantra: A late-night club with a 50:50 mix of foreigners and locals (best from midnight to 5 a.m.). Plays techno and R&B songs in a western manner. Entry is 20 cedis, and tiny beers are 5 cedis. You may generally negotiate a reduction in the admission fee.

Duplex: As of early 2012, this was maybe the most popular venue, with a 50:50 split of expats and locals. Tantra-inspired music, free admission, and 5 cedi small drinks.

Container: Located on Oxford Street, this is one of the classic drinking symbols. An overrun “spot” type pub with 90% locals. Large beers are approximately 3 cedis and are ideal for a couple of drinks in the open air early in the evening. Entrance is free. Acrobats in the street.

Epo’s: Another overgrown location with an 80 percent local clientele. It seems like a mini-carnival a few streets off Oxford Street. Try the “beer tower,” a tapped tower of beer brought to your table in 3 or 5 litres (your choice). 3 litres for 15 cedis, 5 litres for 25 cedis, free admission.

Monsoon: A high-quality sushi restaurant with a little bar. Popular with over-30s, usually foreigners.

Bella Roma: A wonderful Italian restaurant that becomes a bar/club after 10 p.m. Locals make about 60% of the population, with a strong Lebanese presence. A 20 cedi admission charge is possible.

Duncans is a laid-back yet popular outdoor hangout.

Ryan’s Irish Pub is one of the few locations in the neighborhood where you may get a pint. If you want to get away from Africa, this is a good alternative. Otherwise, it’s fairly boring.

La Pleasure Sand: Every Wednesday at 9 p.m., an outdoor reggae night takes place on the beach at Labadi Beach (approximately 4 kilometers from Osu). The admittance fee is 5 cedis, and the big beers are 4 cedis. Foreigners are harassed a bit by jewelery/t-shirt salespeople, but it’s safe and worth a visit on a Wednesday.

FireFly: A great upscale cocktail bar near Citizen Kofi in Osu. Drinks cost 4-5 Cedis for a single shot and 10-15 Cedis for a cocktail. A mix of locals and expats. There is a lot of foreign (white) young females gyrating with public displays of love with the local Ghanaian gents while the music plays electronic and pop music.

The Republic Bar & Grill is a retro-styled afrocentric hangout for creatives (bloggers, photographers, fashion designers), foreigners, and anybody else who doesn’t want to wear high heels or a formal shirt. You may have cold fermented flavored sugar cane juice while listening to World Music or extremely old school Ghanaian Highlife, either indoors or outdoors.

There are plenty additional locations to see across the city, but this selection is ideal for first-time visitors.

Kentucky Fried Chicken also has locations in Accra, including Spintex Road, the Industrial Area, and Osu.
