About Jambo Bar & Cafe

In the heart of Melbourne, Jambo Bar & Cafe is jazzing things up over on Footscray’s Barkly Street. A music venue, cafe and hangout spot all in one, this friendly establishment is a favourite in the local community, and draws in a mix of music lovers, foodies and workers from all over the city. Many visit Jambo Bar & Cafe for the East African food, while others visit for the delicious draft beer and the incredible live music (any excuse is a good one!). Here you’ll enjoy a number of different Ethiopian – both with meat and vegetarian – stews, all perfectly soaked up by some delicious injera, a flat sourdough-style bread. The relaxed vibes and cool atmosphere make it tough to leave, but you can always come back often – with opening hours from midday until late seven days a week, you’ll have plenty of chances to swing by! Be sure to book ahead to secure a table.
