The star of Luanda nightlife, ChillOut is the most famous place to eat and go out in the city, but I find it really awfully pretentious. Every weekend I swear I will never go to ChillOut again, but unfortunately, it is one of the only place in Luanda with house music so we end up there quite often.. There can be a long queue if you only come with guys, especially around 1AM. To be sure to come in if you have no girls with you, try to come a bit early, around midnight. The entrance fee is 2500 kwanzas and you get 5 beers or 3 hard drinks with that. In general, ChillOut doesn’t get very wild and people are not so warm and welcoming compared to many other places in Luanda. It has a very distinctive house music sound I think, with its main DJ, DJ Cesar, that sounds in between house and chill-out music.
The ChillOut restaurant is open the evening only but starting 23h30, the music starts to kick in and it becomes louder and louder. It is very expensive, minimum 100 dollars for a full meal, and it is very similar with Caribe or Coconuts in my opinion (I think Caribe has the same owner as Chillout…).
They have a website if you want to know about the special events organized there, or if you want to look at their menu: http://www.chillout-luanda.com/
