In the heart of the Hippodrome, the Terrace is an institution. It is a large open space with a bar and tables. Very attractive space complete with faux Djenné architechure, hanging plants, blown-glass, and thatch on one end. Thu-Sat nights there is dancing, often with Salsa music. (Salsa is really a phenomenon here in Bamako.) The menu is nothing special but adequate, I usually get the ubiquitous brochettes de Capitaine (nile perch) or beef. Pizzas are decent. Drinks are quite good. Big expat hangout.

It's a nice open air bar with decent music and acceptable prices but in no case you can call it a restaurant !

I have only been here once on a Thursday night thay have a Salsa dance night that brings the expat community out.
This is an openair bar so don't forget you insect repellent!

Located on the busy Hippodrome Street. This is a busy bar with disco. Music the night I was there was mostly latin. It is a mixture of local bar with a number of resident expatriates as regulars. The place has a few 'girls' hanging around but they do not pester you if you are not interested. Typical bar food menu some pizza and other snack food. Not a place to dine.
Open until very late for those who want to party all night long and OK just for quick drink in a busy bar!
