For Niamey, Niger it really does not get much better than this. A huge outdoor place with a grreat overview of the Niger River. Also the only place in the city that I found so far with beer on tap. The Grand Hotel has also houses a popular bar with an Amazing river view, which is especially good around sunset. Jazz and happy hour brochettes on Friday nights. The is a playground and even a petting zoo for kids. The place has seen better days but still it is very nice. There is also an indoor bar as well near the lobby.
