Planet Club KBC

Planet Club KBC

This place has closed down.

Planet Club at Kigali Business Center (KBC) is one of the few clubs in Kigali that charges an entrance fee (usually Rwf 3,000 depending on whether they have special guest DJ’s or performers or not). The party rarely gets started before well past midnight, and peaks around 3am when people come in drunken hordes from Papyrus or Shooters.

Though I admittedly rarely come here, I do like the lay out of the club. With several lounges— each with its own purpose— KBC is a good place to come for an after party. While the dance floor and bar/lounge in the innermost rooms play decent music, I prefer hanging out in the calmer (and protistitute-free) lounges at the opposite end. If you like playing pool, they have several pool tables, and if you like paying for sex, there’s no other place you’ll find more PSWs! Yeay!

The crowd varies, but a high portion of the clientele are (sadly) old wrinkly muzungu men and young Rwandan women (most of which are charging, but some of which are just looking for a sugah daddi). At times, there are large groups of ‘normal’ muzungus here as well, in addition to young Rwandans (mostly boys), and African business-men sipping Gin Tonic by the bar.

  1. The last time i was here there was actually not too many prostitutes on the dancefloor, but then I went into the (super-nasty) toilets, and they were swarming with them! Nice music at KBC though… really too bad about all the prostitutes!

    1. Kigali isn’t really a live music mecca. If you venture into Nyamirambo you might find some (can anyone suggest places?) but there’s not much going on in the rest of the city, music-wise.

      For reggae you’ll want to check out One Love Club and I have seen some live music there. I’m not sure how often people play there, though.

      There’s a new, small bar called Le Goblet that I hear has live music on Saturdays and Papyrus had some jazz thing on last weekend but I didn’t go to either. I know that Le Goblet will let people play randomly… and friend had a short session on his guitar there. But it’s nothing formal.

      Hope this helps… let us know what you find when you get here!
