As you would recall in my last editorial titled, Buzzing life in Owerri pt 1, the closing remarks read as thus, ‘’…… Owerri night life is nothing compared to others. From the hours of 22:00 GMT, the streets are birthed alive. The streets lights had automatically lit by 19:00 GMT. In this part of Owerri city, your night is their day!
However, our focus will spread its tentacles on both the cities of Awka and Owerri. As the yuletide seasons begins with various joyous activities, there is the need to find the place to chill out with friends and families. Orient Weekend took the steps to bring to you the various locations in the suburb of the aforementioned cities to enable you easily navigate your position on the area of choice. We will begin the city of Awka.
Depending the area of entrance, the first sight that would greet any new guests will be the massive and gallant flyover bridges that spreads through the Onistha- Enugu expressway built by the Gov. Willie Obiano government.
Depending on the area of location or interest, you may decide to relax in the deluxe suites of Trig Point hotels located very close to the governor’s lodge. The hotel is acclaimed to be the hotel with the highest rate of excellence and standard.
On the other hand, you may also decide to pay a courtesy visit to the popular Beautiful Gate Hotels for its natural and serene environment. Since its operations in Awka, this hotel has come to become one of the best in the city.
If you still want some more, you can walk into the newest topnotch fastfood in the city, Five Star Restaurant. This fastfood company kickstarted its Awka branch operations this year in the months of August and has attracted guests of different colours and nationality for its mouth-watering, quality meals.
How could you enjoy your Xmas without shaking your body? At this juncture, the prominent Cofi Club provides you the platform to enjoy the best of dancehalls accompanied by special treatment with strippers at a VIP section. Incase, you are not satisfied with the services which I doubt, you may drive quickly to catch the fun more at Club Mila, a club section of Cosmilas Hotels ( Cosmilas is another popular hospitality centre in Awka).
We take a step into the beautiful ancient city of Owerri, Imo states. To get a perfect relaxation spot will be a hard nut to crack. Nonetheless, Orient Weekend took cognizance of the various popular spots at a random.
Permit me to subdivide the city into 6 different parts namely; Orji, MCC Road, Port Harcourt Road, Aba Road, Amakohia and World Bank Avenue. Each of these subdivided areas will have its popular hangouts attached to it.
In no random number, the Orji axis will boost of a high class restaurant named, The Hive and Orange Groove plaza. Hence, students and visitors will have cool spots to chill out.
The MCC road will boost of the popular Mandyz Place. This restaurant and bar had previously hosted Debbie Rise of BBnaija 2017.
While the Port Harcourt road is replete with so many wonderful hang out spots with Mimi Place topping the list. For your kids, you can take them out to the Imo Children’s Park or Jesus Never Fails Centre located in this same area.
At the Aba road, we have the spot of Master Energy and other local redefined bars.
The hottest spot is the earmarked Worldbank Avenue and the reigning spot is the Titanic Hotels and Suites. It is a perfect area. Incase, you are not done yet, and would love to make new friends especially those acclaimed to be Yahoo Boys, you have the Grand Cubana and Orange Spot very next to it. And for your xmas shopping, you have the Supamarket mall closeby.
