Nightlife, Entertainment

The majority of people who visit Algeria do so to enjoy the unique culture, architecture and people. However, this does not mean that there is nothing entertaining to do in Algeria. Besides a number of outdoor activities, you may even find that the city or town you are staying in enjoys some form of nightlife.

If you are visiting a smaller city or town, you may well find that the various nightlife activities available cater mainly for men. Most often it involves getting to know the locals better over a cup of tea or coffee at the nearest cafe. However, after a little chatting you may well discover that there is a discotheque or bar in the vicinity! The majority of discotheques in Algeria are provided by the local hotels and are enjoyed by any number of local men and a variety of tourists who may be visiting at the time. Some of these discotheques are only open to those staying at the hotel as mixed dancing may be frowned upon by the locals. The discotheque may feature various live music groups or the night’s entertainment may take the form of a DJ who will usually provide music from about 8pm until well after midnight. Hotel-operated discotheques or nightclubs are the most common form of nightlife in Algeria.
