It was perfect! All locals but enough faranjis (foreigners) that they don't care. The live music and dancing, it was all a great night out in Gonder and an excuse to see "shoulder dancing". The prices for food and drinks are ridiculous but you get a free show! I got pulled on stage and they really just want you to... More

From all cultural clubs I have visited in Ethiopia I like this one most. The service, the music and the interior is just the best. If you are staying a while in Gondar it is really a must to go there!

Pretty tipical ethiopian place where every night a duo plays ethiopian music and three exceptional dancers (two girls and one boy) perform ethiopian dances. It is usually crowded and quite different and much more amazing than the traditional cultural clubs where one person plays the monostring traditional guitar and sings stories in amharic language.
