Addis Ababa

Addis Ababa Travel Guide

Of the seven mountains that surround Addis, Entoto (10,000 feet) is closest to the city center.

The lounge, opened in 2003, is very new-Addis, with Cosmopolitans, flickering glass lanterns, and acres of red velvet that seem straight out of Marrakesh.

An underground Ethiopian dance hall that’s tough to find unless accompanied by a local.

The barnlike establishment features green walls and rows of long, low wooden benches painted the same hue. In this cool, dim oasis, merchants in dark suits chat quietly.
