Kigali is no more a silent city as it used to be. It’s now like Kampala where never sleeps that’s party after party, fun after fun, there are several night life spots that will keep you on your toes the whole night dancing to the Rwandese music and music from all corners of the world depending on the theme of the night. The Rwandese ladies will keep you company whole night. The few on the party spots in Kigali include:

  • Black and White Club – If you are in search for a crowd in Kigali, this is the place. Located inside the Alpha Palace Hotel, you will find expats here as well, but the DJs tend to favor Rwandan music so come dance to Rwandan music here if you are a real fun of it.
  • Papyrus Nightclub The entrance to the this fun centre found at the bottom floor of the large building near the brochettes BBQ and pool table. It’s an inexplicable fun when with a group of friends
  • Crystal Club – Located on top of Top Tower Hotel, offering great views on top of musical adventure. This one a venue to spend night life from. You can’t be here and end up in pool of boredom but it is not the place hang out at  if you prefer a crowded club, because most individuals usually rent here to make/host private parties, in which case it can be a lot of fun, but if no private party, its loners den.
  • K-Club – The classy fancy night hub for people like you with extra servicing like table service. Dress nicely. It’s probably the most ‘proper’ clubby type place in Kigali so give it a try if that’s your thing.
  • Legacy Lounge – Just K- club this night life house of fun also a place for fancy lie interested guys meaning ever thing is classy. Give it a try while in Kigali.
