9 hangout spots in Blantyre

1. KwaHaraba Art Gallery & Cafe

This is my go-to place. Located right in the center of Blantyre, by Phekani House. I probably spend too much of my free time here. It is a perfect place to hang out or work. The ambiance is amazing. They have some amazing food, I love their salads the most. They make some mean coffee too.

But probably something I’d recommend is the wines and their smoothies (cocktails). While at it, check out the paintings and the books on their shelf. They also host open mics on Wednesday evenings, which are a must-see.

2. La Caverna

This has the same vibe as KwaHaraba. It is also an Art Gallery and Cafe. However, you get a garden view and it has a beautiful playground for kids. You could also walk over to Jacaranda Cultural Centre for more art views. Or the antique shops behind it.

It just gives a chilled vibe. It is located in Top Mandala.

3. Kaya Lounge

Located in Mount Pleasant is Kaya Lounge. A sports bar and grill. I would recommend those that really enjoy a cold drink as they watch football. This place is just lovely for that. It has a great crowd for it, and a vibe too.

You could also just chill by the garden side and enjoy chats.

4. Bar B Ques

After only being there once, I can recommend that this is a vibe. They have good food. A chilled place in the afternoon, but a party place in the nighttime. A great place for smoothies too, if you are into that.

5. Mount Soche Hotel

The poolside is a great place to hang out. Although it does get crowded on weekends with kids and whatnot, it still is a great place to just chill. Or, sit by their garden side and enjoy a drink while reminiscing.

6. MHC Park

Best place for picnics by far. Located in Kwacha, it is one place you should visit. Just make sure to go a bit early so you can grab a perfect seat. Perfect place for drinks, a bit of loud music, and laughs. However, you are bound to see people getting nawty (if you know what I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰).

7. Stake Out Bar & Restaurant

Located on the first floor of Amaryllis Hotel, the hottest hotel in town currently. They have an amazing food and drink menu that’s worth trying. The best place to sit is on the patio which overlooks the heart of Blantyre.
