Set in the busy area of Westlands this bar is extremely popular with both Expats and locals alike, beers are cold, music is good and they also do good food

Went here for some mojitos, beers and food. The cocktails did not skimp on the alcohol and food was good! The decor was very rustic and cool, a very cosy and relaxed place to spend an afternoon.

It's one of the few bars and restaurants I frequent in Nairobi because it is one of the best. The food is nice and generally the atmosphere, particularly on weekends.

There is a great variety of dishes (beef, pork, chicken, pasta, etc). The food is well served and is very tasty! It's a good place to have dinner, especially on thursdays. It's not much expensive.

Had a wonderful time at this bar with a couple of friends from Tananzia, Rwanda, Ethopia and Zanzibar, We enjoyed the music, and the hype at the place as more and more folks came in either to drink, dine and dance. It is a Fab place.
