Savanna Lounge

📍Location: Downtown Rideau

Food & Drink



If you’re wondering where to go for your next night out on the town, look no further than Savanna Lounge!


Located in the heart of downtown on Besserer Street, Savanna Lounge offers delicious, curated menus and signature cocktails made from high-quality ingredients.


Owner Amina Mohamed, who immigrated from Kenya to Ottawa as a child, has always had a passion for food. Her most cherished memories come from family and friends coming together and sharing a delicious meal. The opportunity to offer a space for others to do the same was a dream come true.


For Amina, Ottawa is a community before a city. She appreciates its rich diversity, and also the willingness of neighbours to help one another when going through difficult times.


To say the pandemic has affected Savanna Lounge is an understatement. Amina signed her lease to open Savanna lounge in 2019, and construction was set to start in March 2020, right when the pandemic hit. Construction had to pause several times due to restrictions, and the team was impacted financially by sharp increases in the price of materials. Additionally, Savanna Lounge was not eligible for many government relief benefits as they were not operating prior to the pandemic.


In February, Savanna Lounge took another hit as a result of downtown demonstrations. Unable to fully reopen as a result of disruptions, Amina and her team faced further lost revenue and staffing issues.
