We came here for drinks. Fancy, lounge-y interior and helpful staff. Food looked good too. Perfect place to catch up with friends and close to several other great places in case you choose to escalate matters, as it were or just try something different.

Is a nice place to have a regular dinner. The food is good, specially the grilled stuff. Nice ambiance. The bar part of the place is not bad also. The other Bla Bla from Cartier Badala is also a nice place.

Pros: Beautiful space, super service, great wine selection. Cons: Food was not the best, beef brochettes and rabbit were over cooked and pricey. Will definitely go back for the drinks and music which is usually pretty good but wouldn't go back to eat.

This is an interesting street bar on one of Bamakos main bar districts. It is an interesting setting as an abondoned building with no roof turned into a quazi art bar. The decor is definately interesting. I tried on several nights and some busy others...More
