    1 review

    Located in the Ghion Hotel and presided over by the famous Mulatu Astatke, this place is one of the top places in town to see Ethio-Jazz. The club is dimly lit and looks like it was decorated in the 70s but the music is good, and it is definitely worth a visit.

    The tribal diversity here may be unmatched anywhere. It is a shame to see the river being dammed, by a government that is putting money ahead of everything else.

Even if you aren't a wildlife buff the hiking alone is ...
