If you’re a nightlife enthusiast then you’re already acquainted with the euphoria of nightlife in the city. Accra is the heartbeat of the Republic of Ghana. A city founded in 1877 by the British when they took over from the Danes and the Dutch. Accra is the first touch point for visitors entering the country via air. Home to many tourist sites like hotels, clubs, cinemas, restaurants and more the city has made a name for itself as the city that welcome everybody and indeed it does. There’s no specific definition of the city as it adapts to global trends and culture. But of course there’s always uniqueness. What sets Accra apart is the people living in it.
City people are always different. They appear and do things differently and the people who live in the capital city are no different. Weekends are the best and favourite days for people who live in the city of Accra. The weekend days start from Thursday for some and Friday for many. Friday nights are super special and the culture is to hang out with friends, family or co-workers not at home or office but at one’s favourite spot. Everyone has a favourite spot and Accra has something for everyone. In the heart of Accra is the suburb known as Osu. Osu was once the home of Ghana’s colonial rulers. It hosted the then governors and officials of the British colonial rulers. One of Ghana’s monumental landmarks, the Christianborg Castle popularly known as Osu Castle built by Denmark-Norway in 1659 is located at the coastal built of Osu.
Osu is home to many hotels, shops, offices, restaurants, clubs and more. This section of the city is known for its hospitality. Osu is known to never sleep – there is always something going on somewhere. Amongst the popular hangouts is the Republic Bar & Grill – a renaissance of archaic city nightlife. A visit to the Republic Bar & Grill is a trip down memory lane. The architecture and interior design gives you a glimpse of the past and future of what drinking bars/pubs were and should be.
