What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

The Hash House Harriers is always top of my list. I understand there is a running 'club' as well. Apart from that it's kids birthdays and the usual holidays/festivals. You have to make your own fun. - Nov 17, 2017
There are a few bars and clubs in town, a few restaurants, and many people host smaller gatherings at their homes. There are a few book clubs, and events are regularly advertised on the Liberia expats google group. It's not hard to meet people in Monrovia if you put a little bit of effort into it. - Jun 23, 2016
Dancing at Sajj, happy hours or quiz nights at Tides or Fuzion. There are several nightclubs and bars, but not much else. Most people make their own fun. - Aug 20, 2015
Have friends over for dinner. Go camping in Robertsport. Take a long weekend trip to the Gambia or Morocco. - Dec 19, 2013
There are a few clubs in town, some night life, dinner parties, happy hours at the Marine House, golf at the Firestone Compound, volley ball at the beach, checking out restaurants with friends. - Aug 3, 2010
Entertaining is either done in the home or out at restaurants. Other than going to the beach, there is nowhere else to go to. - Jul 13, 2009
