A few months ago I met up with DJ and radio host Sheldon to tell us about the best places to chill on a Friday night in the capital. After positive feedback, I have decided to let you in on some of the hotspost in Kumasi. That is the best places to go to on a Friday night in Oseikrom.
These are five of the hottest places to be on a Friday night in Kumasi.
1. Shaka zulu:
Shaka zulu is the newest vibe in Kumasi. It is literally where you have to be if you want to ball hard on a Friday night. The atmosphere is always lit with very beautiful lighting and classy interior. No wonder all the classy men and women hang out there. If you want to hang out with the exotic and upper echelon in Kumasi, that is those who pay big bills for high class services, then you should head straight to shaka zulu on Fridays and you wont regret it. Their strict dress code keeps the riff raffs away and ensure that their standards are maintained.
Kona café in Kumasi is just like the one in Osu, Accra. Beautiful open air environment, well-crafted wooden furniture and of course good music from top DJs. Apart from the very popular palm wine available, there’s a lot to eat and drink. If open air turn up is your preference, then look no further because you surely go enjoy for this one KONA!
3. The View Bar and Grill:
The View is like Asamoah Gyan. Even though it’s not the hottest at the moment, you cannot do without it because of what it brings to night life in Kumasi. It boasts of a high class clientele just like Shaka Zulu. A lot of expats in Kumasi like to hang out here because of the ambience. Resident Djs will keep you dancing all night long to various genres of music ranging from your favourite afrobeats to old skul hiphop. Classy guys and sophisticated ladies make sure you party hard at the View Bar and Grill.
4. Bar Naas & Plus 2:
Bar Naas and Plus 2 are Kumasi’s live band hotspots. Located only a few meters away from each other, both boast of open air environments with grills and drinks to accompany them. They usually offer live band renditions of all your favourite hits across all genres. There’s also live performances and guest appearances from your favourite Kumawood stars like Nkansah Lil Win.

5. Vienna City:
Vienna City is one of the most popular clubs in Kumasi. It is popular for two main reasons. It is not as strict as the aforementioned clubs like Shaka Zulu and The View so all kinds of people patronize the club. Irrespective of your class or your pocket size, you will be assured of a great clubbing experience at Vienna City. The second reason why this place is so popular is that, the road leading to the club is a hotspot for sex workers in Kumasi. It is therefore very easy to see some of the guys patronize these sex workers after a good jam in the club.
