Maputo Nightlife: Where to let loose in Maputo…

Mozambican locals sure know how to let loose after a hard day’s work and on weekends. Whether you’re looking for a place to dance the night away, relax while enjoying a couple of drinks or seeing some live music, you’ll have more than enough options in Maputo.

If you ever find yourself on a Maputo adventure and looking to explore its vibrant nightlife – here are Dana Tours’ top picks on where to go…


Coconuts Live

A popular nightclub in the capital city is Coconuts Live. With very affordable drinks and a huge dance floor, this place tends to get very crowded over the weekends – definitely aimed towards the younger crowd. They also have a pool bar where you can take a swim, relax and order your drinks straight from the pool.

Doubling as a restaurant and late-night bar, Dock’s will cater to your eating and social needs. They host Prawn & Jazz nights on Thursday evenings and have a Happy Hour starting at 11pm on Friday evenings. Dock’s is located right next to the ocean which means that your dinner and drinks will be accompanied by a fresh sea breeze.

Africa Bar

On Avenida 24 de Julho and Karl Marx Street and a five-minute walk from the city centre you’ll find Africa Bar. This nightclub is a popular meeting place for wealthier Mozambicans dressed to the nines. Live jazz nights are held on Thursday nights which draws big expat crowds to enjoy the local bands performing live.

This one is for the night owls! If you’re interested in a Mozambican/Brazilian fusion of tastes and sounds, Sinatra’s is the place to be. They are located on Av. Martires de Inhaminga, open at 9pm and closing very late.



Just want to chill out with a pizza, family or friends and a couple of 2M beers? Mundo’s has been rated as one of the most vibrant restaurants, pubs and sports bars in Maputo. If you have kids you can even bring them along to play in the designated kids play area while you enjoy your meal and drinks in the company of friends.



Chez Rango

Conveniently located in Maputo’s main train station, Chez Rango offers an intimate environment where you can enjoy Afro-Jazz during the week or see live jazz bands on Saturday nights.
