Table of Contents
We always like to begin with the best nightlife a city has, then we will cover meeting single Kinshasa girls during the day and how to use online dating sites to your advantage. Date night ideas and things to do during the day will also be mentioned towards the end.
Congo can be a fun country to visit but like all over Africa you need to know what you are doing while you are here. We will have some tips throughout the post plus get more into the travel aspects at the end.
Nightclubs & Pick Up Bars
We know many of you just want a list of singles bars and nightclubs to pick up Kinshasa girls so here it is:
- Spirit Club & Bar B Q at 9, Avenue Kauka, Gombe
- Carre at 230, Avenue Du Flambeau, Barumbu
- Saloon VIP at Boulevard du 30 Juin
- Fiesta Club at Ave Isiro
- Sky Lounge at Boulevard Du 30 Juin
- Planete Sono at Rue De Nyangwe
- Montecristo at Avenue Kalemie 27
- Champagne at 179 Avenue de La Paix
- Spice Lounge Bar at 436,Croisement Des Avenues
- La Datcha at 16 Avenue du livre
- Cheetah at Avenue Flambeau
The main areas for singles nightlife would probably be Matonge and Gambol, with Matonge being the trendier part of town. You can also find more bars and clubs to try and meet women for one night stands in Bandal.
It is probably best for you to try and stay in one of these areas of town, particularly if you hope to hook up with Kinshasa girls on your trip. But there is something else we need to mention about the nightlife for singles here, and that is that many of the girls you meet are going to be prostitutes or sugar babies.
This is very common all over Africa and many places around the world, and we will dive deeper into it later in the post. Just know that if you are pulling a Congo girl for a one night stand and you get laid a little too easily there is a good chance she is a prostitute and will ask for money at some point.
We covered this same thing when talking about trying to get a one night stand with Kampala women or when traveling to Yaounde or in just about all of our dating guides that cover cities in impoverished countries.
Meet Kinshasa Girls During The Day
Trying to day game here is going to have some positives, but some even bigger negatives. Lets start with the good, a lot of the girls here will be pretty receptive to approaches from strangers, particularly if you are a foreigner reading this.
You can have more success getting numbers and setting up dates here than many parts of the world just by introducing yourself, having a chat, and seeing if she wants to meet you again. Now for the bad news, this is a crowded, polluted, dirty and dangerous city so where are you going to pull this off?
The best mall in the city is Le Premier and it will definitely be the top spot to try and pick up single Kinshasa girls during the day. You could also try the Matrix Tower or the Marche Central, but they are not going to be near as good.
We doubt most reading this are going to want to spend a lot of time on the rough streets of Congo for the rare chance to meet women, but if you do more power to you. Our next section breaks down a much faster, safer, and easier way to do it.
Chat With Girls Online
A lot of guys have caught the travel bug, for some it is to see new cities but for many it is because they took a trip abroad and got laid a lot and now want to do it again and again. While not always the case, generally if you are an outsider you will get noticed and many of the single women in the area will get curious about you.
That curiosity can lead to many dates and hooking up far easier than you are used to. One of the best ways to see how true this is would be to sign up for a dating site in the country you are thinking about visiting.
Here that means Afro Introductions, set your location to this city and then begin sending out messages to the single girls in Kinshasa that you see online and think are hot. You probably are going to get a lot more attention from these ladies in the Congo then you would from the ones back in your home town.
Does that always guarantee you are going to get laid as much as you want? Unfortunately not, but many times it does. You will have to put in much less effort here than in your home country most of the time and things move a lot faster because online dating is the modern speed dating.
You can sign up to Afro Introductions for free and look at the selection of single women using it in Congo. If you like what you see begin to contact them and line up some dates, if not all it cost you was a couple minutes.
Kinshasa Dating Guide
We just fully covered the best ways to meet singles near you so now our Kinshasa dating guide has a new task to handle. Getting a girl to go out with you is a big step in the right direction, but now you have to show her a good time on your date night.
Any of these romantic restaurants or cocktail bars could do the trick:
- Le Cercle Gourmand at Cercle de Kinshasa, 414 Avenue du Cercle, Gombe
- Limoncello at Avenue Tombalbaye 20, Gombe
- Le Caf Conc at 13 avenue de la Nation, Gombe
- A Casa Mia at 0B Avenue Uvira
- Memling at 5B Avenue du Tchad

- L’olive Verte at 40 Boulevard du 30th Juin
- Wido Bar at Av. de la Nation
- Kwilu Bar at 3 Avenue de la Justice
You can also head to events or see performances at the Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles.
Day Date Ideas
Try to get outside and enjoy a nice day if you can. Here are some good places to take advantage of a sunny day together:
- Ma Vallee
- Zongo Falls
- Jardin Zoologique
You may also want to head to the Jardin D’Eden for a meal and a boat trip, or go to the Lola ya Bonobo sanctuary for orphaned baboons. The Serpents du Congo snake farm is worth looking into, or head to the Marche des Voleurs which translates to the Market of Thieves.
For some more sophistication on your date during the day try:
- National Museum of Congo
- Académie des Beaux-Arts
- Laurent Kabila Tomb
Tip For Tourists & Expats
There are some more things we need to discuss that may help you hook up with sexy girls on your trip and also just have a better and easier time overall. The local currency is the Congolese Franc and you get roughly 1,600 for every dollar at the time we post this.
This city is the land of the haves and the have nots, do not expect it to be a cheap place to visit by any means. Sure, you can get by for peanuts but if you expect a nice hotel in a good area and to enjoy western amenities it will cost you a lot.
You can try to save some money by booking online through Agoda, but if you are on a backpackers budget this is not the right city for you. Try to get a hotel near the nightlife if you plan to do a lot of partying and hope to get one night stands. Gambol in particular would be a good area to stay.
The main language here is French, knowing some will definitely help your chances with the women in Congo. Earlier we mentioned that there will be prostitutes at Kinshasa nightclubs and bars, this is really common in third world countries.
Some of these girls will be flat out prostitutes who make you agree to a deal before they leave the bar with you to let you get laid. Others will be more like sugar babies looking for a sugar daddy to pay their bills and to get their hair done.
Hooking up can come real easy here, but knowing why she is giving it up so easy is going to be hard to figure out sometimes. Unfortunately there isn’t much advice to be given on that subject, but it is definitely something you need to know going in.
Enjoy Dating Kinshasa Girls
If you have anything else to add please do so in the comments, or if any places we list here have closed down when you visit please also let us know. We will do our best to keep this page as up to date as possible, but that isn’t always easy.
Don’t forget about all of the single women on Afro Introductions, if you want to hook up when in town then start to use it a week or two before you take your trip. That wraps up our best places to meet girls in Kinshasa with our dating guide, enjoy your time here.
