Christmas at Carbon

Carbon heralds the arrival of London-style nightlife in Accra. The club has been conceived by after-hours visionary Nick House (the man behind Mahiki, Whisky Mist, and The Punch Bowl) in collaboration with Blacksheep, the interior design team responsible for Whisky Mist and Cuckoo Club. For the club interiors, they’ve created a series of interconnected spaces crafted in shades of black, white and gold, building a sense of scale and drama. It’s situated on the upper levels of Icon House, home to Coco Lounge and Urban Grill, and revellers will enjoy amazing views over the capital, not to mention world-class cocktails. DJs from around the world will be visiting, as well as fire performers and other artistes.
