IN THE KNOW:
Nightlife Spot: Do you fancy Kigali’s nightlife? La Planet is the best nightspot to think about. The disco is well heeled and popular with young Rwandans and folks from different walks of life.
The drinks are pricey but the music is western pop and east African vibes, all catchy.
The dance floor is great with a large mirror on one side.
This is strictly for the movie lovers.
Head to Cine Star Cinema and step into a different world of movie magic. The new modern cinema centre in Kigali screens all the latest movies, from Hollywood to Bollywood.
You’ll catch-up with movies, like “The Brothers Bloom” and “Management”, a love story featuring a travelling art saleswoman, who tries to shake off a flaky motel manager who falls for her and won’t leave her alone.
However, there aren’t any Nollywood blockbusters or any from our regional movie industries like the ones shown at average cinemas.
Good news to those who have a taste for salsa dance, and soothing Jazz! Every Thursday Pasadena gives you an opportunity to enjoy your dream dance, while sharing a nightlife moment with your beloved/pals.
Pasadena is situated in Gikondo, a suburb of Kigali city.
But, if Pasadena is not an ideal place for you, slope down to the Hôtel des Mille Collines, in Kiyovu for karaoke and live music bands playing away every evening. Don’t be taken up only by the music.
Taste something either from the hotel’s restaurant, or bar. The menu is excellent and worthy every coin paid.
