Bao Cafe, Abidjan

Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire

Located in the heart of the historic cultural lung of the town of Cocody and more widely in the city of Abidjan, the Bao Café (for info, the establishment takes its name from the game of bao, very popular in Zanzibar, which is the equivalent of Awale, an abstract combinatorial board game born on the African continent), managed with great energy by Eric Mahama, has passed in the space of a few years of concept-bar cocktails-tapas (taste their mini burgeeers! ) a hybrid space halfway between the indie cultural bar and the café-concert attracting customers from all over the city. A veritable cultural crossroads and rallying point for aesthetes and (p) arty boys and girls from all walks of life and from all walks of life, the pretty Bao, who is also a pioneer and promoter of talent, stands out in particular by the richness and the versatility of its programming and the beautiful part made to cultural diversity and social mix. In a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, in the air-conditioned room, on the terrace or under the stars on the street side, you will be able to enjoy open scenes welcoming musicians, comedians or slamers, but also fabulous jam sessions, memorable live acts jazz, blues, reggae, funk, ska, traditional djembe, rumba fusion and even rock, dance workshops and springboard concerts such as If You Got Soul (promotion of hip-hop with the prodigies of Rap Made in Babi & guests ), or exhibitions of art and crafts promoting young shoots of contemporary African art. A melting pot of diverse and varied cultures and sensibilities that joyfully telescope over a night or more, the Bao Café, an ideal place to meet and befriend, is a perfect reflection of the modern and uninhibited urbanity of one of the most emblematic communes of Abidjan. A must stop to live from the inside - and most often until late at night - the excitement of the City of Arts. Cocody definitely rocks! !
