Addis Ababa

Addis Ababa Travel Guide

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.

The best contemporary-art gallery in Addis, housed in a 19th-century mansion.

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.
