Via Via is a terraced hillside bar with gravelled paths and awnings to protect clientèle from inclement weather. There are large communal tables with bench seating, surrounding a bonfire, and a barbecue serving food until 0500 next to a busy cocktail bar.
During the day there is free WiFi. Security guards patrol enforcing a strict no drugs / no guns policy.
Thursday is Party Night at Via Via
The consistently packed dance floor is overlooked by a DJ booth and a juice bar with a balcony. The music is predominantly commercial R'n'B / Dance floor-fillers with a mixture of popular local tunes.
The top bar has an Africa theme and parasols cover the central dance floor. There is a raised stage for live bands / DJs, surrounded by bench seating in bay windows. Parking can be a problem. It is perhaps best to use the guarded parking bays on Makongoro Road (on the north side of Palace Hotel).
