Whether you’re in the mood to dance, chill or simply sit and enjoy a cocktail, Pharaoh’s Lounge will fit the bill. It is also one of the few places in Windhoek that allows patrons to party away until the early hours of the morning to catchy African-styled dance music. The location is on the small side, so it gets rammed and it’s not the best place to go if you are looking for a quiet drink, but it does pulsate with an energetic rhythm that might just tempt you to hit the dance floor.
Get your groove on at DoubleMT, where there’s a party on just about every weekend. Live performances by some of Namibia’s top local musicians, themed party nights and DJs that get the place pumping are all part of the fun at DoubleMT. If you’re young and hip and want to try a true slice of the authentic Windhoek party scene, this is the place to go, where singles, doubles and hookah pipes all roll merrily together.
