Until Thu Feb 27
Time Out says
This East African-inspired lounge is the perfect backdrop for the deeply rhythmic world music buffet on offer every Thursday. The rotating roster is like an ingathering of the African diaspora, with DJs and live music acts playing everything from Afrobeat and samba to cumbia and makossa. Translation: It's impossible not to move—the thunderous percussion invites hip-quaking abandon. Though there are certainly African expats in the mix, the patrons tend to be as diverse as the music. It all adds up to a night where "one love" seems possible (and not just a euphemism for a post-club hookup).
