Locals tell you how to stay cool in Ghana’s equatorial capital

I would start the night off with drinks at the Golden Tulip Hotel, tel: (233-21) 213161, a 10-minute drive from the city center. There’s a poolside bar with a live band, or you can have some fun betting in the hotel’s casino. After that, take a taxi to the Labadi Beach Hotel, tel: (233-21) 772501. You can chill out with friends at the Terrace Bar and sit outside and enjoy the cool breeze. Afterward, head to the northern part of Accra to one of my favorite restaurants, the Redd Lobster, tel: (233-21) 502715. It’s at a bit of a distance, but it’s worth the long drive to get a good taste of Ghanaian chicken and some of the best seafood around.
