Brian’s Bar is aptly named after Brian Currie, the man who had the vision to transform The Old Boma from a crumbling ruin to a tropical retreat in the heart of rural Africa. He is also the founder of Trade Aid, the charity that runs the hotel, and the charity’s Chairman of Trustees.
Brian’s Bar offers a range of refreshing and revitalising drinks including beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks together with our own special cocktails and delicious fresh fruit mocktails. Experience a traditional African ‘sun downer’ in the bar or on our sun terrace over looking Mikindani bay.
Guests are invited to Brian’s Bar to have a complimentary drink with the Hotel Manager the evening of their arrival. Try out the ‘Boma Bee Sting’ cocktail whilst chatting to staff about the hotel, the charity that runs it and the local attractions, or make new friends sharing stories about your experiences in Tanzania and beyond.
