In this cocktailbar you will get definitely the best, tastiest and grandiose cocktail in all of Essen! In the African-decorated bar, guests can enjoy fruity and colorful cocktails in hide-related armchairs. At first glance, it seems that the cocktails would be quite expensive (most cost 9 €), but all drinks are very large and lovingly designed. No other bar offers such great value, as the numerous bowls full of various snacks are included. Overall, the Daktari offers the best cocktails, a great staff and a distinctive atmosphere - Highly recommended!
