This is my go to place for a night out with girls or a twosome. I love the ambiance, great music, interesting cocktail menu and the sizzler chicken dish. The downsides are that the service can be slow and the lounge can get crowded and smoky very quickly. I'm no owl, so try to go in for dinner and head... More

Lovely ambience and good variety on the starter menu. Large variety on the cocktails with proper content guidance and very engaging mixologist. Awesome place for a group to unleash the night.

Service is too slow yet so many waiters around... If you want dry wine never ever order wine by the glass... I asked for dry red wine by glass.. It was so horrible that I wasn't even able to finish it.. I got sick from that horrible wine!!!

The restaurant has a huge menu, with something for everyone to choose from. The service was fantastic and the ambiance in the restaurant was very cool, with a well done industrial/natural theme.

I went here a weekend night of my trip. It seems to attract both a local and expat crowd. It was definitely a packed crowd. The music was almost all American Trap Music with a sprinkle of Reggae. I think I heard only one or two songs the entire night originating from Africa.

Mercury has consistently served the best cocktails in Nairobi. The atmosphere is very cozy. They also serve a wide range of tantalizing bar snacks - I highly recommend the mini steaks.

Always enjoy myself here, they have great music on Saturdays and a mature crowd. The service is good, especially love the chicken wings served with a hot sauce.
