Very rarely did I go to this place in the evening and did not find it busy. With the choice of bars, I opted for the more quiet one, and found it pleasant. You could have a conversation and be heard. Drinks are fairly priced, the food is good, pricey - I had the chicken poussin which was tasty.

We went for a night cap after going out with my wife. We were looking for a place with nice music and a crowd to spend a few hours before calling it a day. The place was full with people mainly of Indian-Asian background. They all seemed to have a nice time. There were many hookers in the place. Music... More

The food was pretty good - the fish was a little overcooked. The side salad was excellent as well as their Chili sauce. I was surprised with how expensive the bill was... but we did get two entrees, 3 beers, and 6-8 shots of tequila ($91). So I guess the price wasn't bad after all.

fun spot to grab some late night drinks. they have plenty of TV screens for the avid sports fan (usually football is showing). Turns into a "club" in the late hours; good music, fun vibes.

Mostly expatriates, foreigners passing by Nairobi and local high class, and Nairobi girls of the happy life, but in very nicely decorated and very lively with three different ambiences place. Very nice music and crazy atmosphere. Prices are upscale but is a very good secure option in Westland's.

Great place to enjoy sports and mingle with expats and locals. Watch when you get your bill and keep count of what you drink. Food is okay to enjoy a beer with but nothing special, in the late evenings it can get busy with local ladies looking for company, beware and watch your phone and wallet, nothing is as good... More

This is a good bar for a drink, food fair, does become very lively and sometimes very loud, however overall it is what you expect no frills just a good time.

Good sports bar to watch your live action, decent food during weekends and early evenings but quite expensive for what it is and you'll have to wait a long time for your meal (maybe well over an hour) if there's a sports event on. . As soon as the football finishes it turns into a disco - almost no other... More

typical bar, medium loud music. However with attractive scenery, there to enjoy. Talking possible. The waiters are very, very pushy in getting you more drinks; that is disturbing and takes away all the fun
