Recently moved to Boulevard Latrille not far from the Chinese economic mission, VIP is one of the upmarket Ivorian nightclubs with a fashionable local crowd and frequent appearances by Ivorian showbiz stars.
Formerly Times Square, the Stand-up is an intimate and sophisticated lounge bar with regular comedy performances.
Life Star prides itself on being Abidjan's most exclusive hotspot, frequented by the likes of Didier Drogba, Kim Kardashian and Samuel Eto'o, and often hosting performances by European DJs. The music is more international than some of its rivals in the city, and the crowd as well - often full of showbiz stars, footballers and younger members of the ex-pat community. It's definitely the place people go to be seen, though things only really get going in the early hours.
