This is where the members of the Billionaire Boys club hang out…maybe in one of the 1000GHS VVIP indoor chalets…
Sorry just had to get that out of the way before diving into the review J The first time I drove past this joint I thought it was a cute name for a chop bar…afterall…it’s in Dzorwulu…how wrong I was…Shaka is the new Twist, even though the old Twist is still alive and kicking. 2nd spoiler…ladies, don’t expect to find any oiled up Mandingos here…that’s just false marketing…they do however have girls in raffia skirts and calabash bras (oh how I miss those days…) sashaying about. It might be a bit tricky finding your way in the first time especially since you need to make an exit off a highway, but that’s just the first time. You can either make a right into Dzorwulu and drive up the dirt road or slow down and look out for the entrance as soon as the neon sign hits you. The parking headache is a body works specialist’s dream.
There’s a lot of classic old school dark hard wood in the décor (no pun intended) with dark rich reads and flickering lanterns providing minimal illumination. It’s very dark and brooding and calls for sipping good bourbon from a snifter. If that’s not your thing, their cocktails hover around 15ghs and feature all your standard wines and spirits and shooters for 7ghs. The floor plan features a long bar with semi plush booths against the walls and a barricaded VIP area.
Despite the ancient feel, it attracts quite a varied crowd and the DJ doesn’t act like he’s playing off a 64mb flash drive.
What else… nice multi stalled restrooms (befitting their projected patronage it seems) conveniently located behind the DJ and close to the VVIP for some ahem…productive hovering.
