    Great nightclub. If you're looking for a safe place to jam all night in Addis, then this is the place to be.

    This is definitely NOT “a safe place to jam all night,” at least for women. Two of my friends were assaulted within 30 mins of being at Illusiin during the late night/early morning of July 21, 2019. The first incident happened when we were walking into the club, past the raised tables on the left, and a man reached down from one of these tables and grabbed my friend. When she tried to tell the guard so he could do something about it, he dismissed her and told her to just leave it alone (while the guy who grabbed her was laughing behind the guard). She eventually did leave it alone, because it was obvious that the guard was actually defending the assaulter and wasn’t going to do anything about it. Feeling pretty unsafe/unsettled/angry after that, we decided to leave soon after. On the way out, it happened AGAIN to another friend with from another guy at the raised tables (I wouldn’t call these tables VIP because they’re obviously just for trash). And AGAIN the guards told us “becca becca” and were pushing us out of the club instead of doing literally anything at all to the man who perpetrated the assault. When we asked why they weren’t taking any actions against the men (who committed those assaults literally under the guard’s noses), they shrugged and were again dismissive. We left. The impression that the guards gave us was that what the men did was not a big deal. That having your body grabbed was something that was obviously going to happen at a club, and that it was acceptable. And that the men paying for access to those tables gave them the right to do what they wanted with impunity. Assault should not be something that is expected at a nightclub. It is not casual. It is not acceptable. It is not defensible. If the management cares about women enjoying their night safely, the very very least that could be done is to instruct guards to take these complaints seriously and punish the perpetrators (for example, just kick them out) rather than the ones who have been violated. Seems like common sense, but it’s obviously not being executed. If people are held accountable for their actions, they might think twice before violating somebody’s body. The conclusion is this: Find somewhere else to party in Addis. Don’t support a business which allows a culture of assault to thrive.
