Exploring Accra's Nightlife with Juls

The bustling city of Accra is close to the heart of producer and DJ, Juls. Though born and raised predominately in London, Juls' pride for his mother country, Ghana, is strongly conveyed through in his genre-blending beats. His pioneering sounds and collaborations with artists like WizKid, Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, and international artists like GoldLink and Masego has helped push Afrobeats out of the continent and into the international sphere. Most recently, he has collaborated with Tay Iwar and Projexx on the single "Chance," part of his debut album expected this summer.

Read below to see Juls' favourite spots to vibe, eat and party in Accra -- though he warns "65% of people aren't built" for Ghana's nightlife scene.

Alley Bar

This became my favourite spot over the Christmas holidays in Accra. I probably went there at least 2-3 times a week during my stay. It's got a really nice vibe. The pork chops are great, and the setting is perfect. The night could go either way; chilled evening with the gang or a proper turn-up. Friday nights are the best!

Bloom Bar

You can't go to Accra and not go to Bloom bar! It's impossible. Bloom Bar is one of the most popping spots in Accra. The place is always packed, so you always have to book a spot in advance. Service is impeccable and both the food and drink is top-notch. Perfect party vibe with amazing DJs. Special shout to the DJs: iPhone DJ, Bruce and DJ Baylor.

Brasa Grill Restaurant, Labone

This restaurant was another favourite spot for me over the Christmas holidays. I had an amazing experience. Everyone should try their sirloin steak and butter chunk fries with their special Brasa sauce!

Sky Bar 25

Another favourite spot of mine but chale you must be ready to spend! Mandem - if you want to impress that special lady, this is the place! A premier rooftop venue that overlooks the city. Great entertainment and very chilled. The cocktails are great as well. Try the frozen pineapple mojito.

Front/Back

Front Back is a member-only spot but the vibes are super dope. They may let you in every once in a while. The music is proper! They have some very cool curated events like “Amapiano and Brunch” and a few other events. Sunday is the best evening to go!

Sandbox Beach Club

Great spot for beach lovers with a view. Very luxurious with a chilled vibe. Again, Sunday's are the best at Sandbox.

KŌZO

Kozo has a very dope restaurant and bar that combines stylish ambience, Asian tropical decor, and Pan Asian cuisine to present a new yet exciting dining and social experience. Great music and excellent food.

Purple Pub

Purple Pub is the best local bar in Accra. Their drinks are not for the faint-hearted though. Try the five fingers drink and meet your maker!

The Woods

The Woods is one of my most favourite spots in Accra. I've had a few parties there myself! The best days are Wednesdays, where they have live events and showcases the new talent in the city!

LUNA Rooftop

It's relatively new but has a fantastic setting and some great drinks. I would recommend going on a Thursday!
