Whenever I am in Nairobi, we stop by Casablanca for a drink and a bite to eat. It is a cozy spot and the food has always been good. Over the past few years, it seems like the crowds have lessened and it isn't as fun as it used to be. The staff have always been extremely friendly. The pizza... More

This used to be one of the top spots for a night out with friends in Nairobi. These days are long gone. Run down, tacky even. But it still serves great Pizza. Unfortunately, that's the only reason for going there. If at all.

Nice and wide range of cocktails, plus the sheesha service is good , on the downside the dj on weekdays is boring and that's where they should improve

Really noisy bar. You are frisked by security staff as you enter; drinks are very pricey and often contain no alcohol; a favourite transaction space for sex workers; pick pockets are rampant here. If you want a blast at a noisy disco, and don't mind the seedy style, leave your wallet and phone at home, and stuff your cash in... More

Not much to remember about. It was a Tuesday evening place was very quiet-did not expect that for a bar- I wanted a place that was busy but the snacks and drinks were great especially the cocktail juice. My friends enjoyed their beers as well. Maybe the atmosphere was like that because of the November rains but I will surely... More

Had a great Saturday night with good music and the videos shown on big screens. Club was suprisingly not crowded and it was easy to dance and find seating. They also had seating outside and fires for people who were cold. Would go there again.

A lively place to hang out and some of the food is alright. A bit smokey so if one is a non smoker, you are at a disadvantage.

So, I hang out here from 5:30-11 or so, pretty often. It is generally pretty empty during this time. The huge outdoor garden is lovely, the service is good, and they pack an excellent Shisha pipe. I am told the place turns into a crazy club on the late side, but for me, its a great place to relax and... More
