    Plantation 24hr Cafe - Intercontinental Hotel: Latin dancing on Friday nights

    by Homanded Written Nov 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Imagine our surprise, being Cuban when we arrived at the Intercontinental hotel and found us listening to (and dancing) to Cuban music!

    Sounds of Celia Cruz, Willie Chirino and Gloria Estefan all belted out phonetically by very talented musical group who are local Kenyans.
    Had a wonderful time.

    Drinks are strong (they don't skimp on their alcohol) and the ambiance is very trendy.

    Dress Code: Nice casual wear, local Kenyan women were dressed in very attractive head wraps and beautiful print african dresses.

    Club or Pub, didn't catch the name: Night bars

    This picture was taken in the outskirts of Mombasa. I was awarned in my Nairobi hotel (and not only) not to take my camera with when strolling around in the dark because it might be stollen. Therefore, I didn't take any night-time pic in Nairobi.
    This is pretty much the same type of the bar I visited in Nairobi, with live music, several bars and good inexpensive food. The atmosphere was very relaxed and cool.

    Dress Code: No dress code at all, put some casual cloths suitable for dancing because you cannot resist not to dance here. This people, boys and girls, have rhytm in the blood and they dance extremely good.

  • Aksum Bar: Boring scene...

    by RblWthACoz Written Jul 16, 2006

    I figured it might be cool in here since it was designed with an Ethiopian theme. However, it is in the Serena, which is a center for the business travelers who have some money to spend. I found everyone there to be older and boring and definitely not my type.

  • Jazz Pub: Nice starting point for a night out

    This is a wonderfull bar on Moi avenue with a balcony on the first floor. Get yourself a spot there and meet the locals. You will be the only whitie there, but if you are not scared about that, go in and make some new friends. Watch out for the waiters, not all of them return the small change automaticaly.

    Dress Code: Whatever you want, but it is still Africa, people like to dress up for a night out.

    Gipsy: Feelling like a nomade sometimes

    Gipsy is an expat spot and stop in Nairobi. It is located in Westlands where most expats live.
    Go there for pub-like food and drinks !

    There are three bars/restaurants back to back belonging to the same management I suppose. Gipsy bar, Tropicanna restaurant and Bower Bar.
    Big Screens for Sport events and latter at night the usually local companions ;)

    It is a save place when you feel like downing few beverages.

    The deco is spanish (prints and pictures)

    Dress Code: Casual

    Klub house I&II: westlands

    by kahuhadavid Written Dec 12, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    well i suggest you should head to westlands for a good night out most of the clubs are located here and within walking range apart from klub house this is a good club abit pricey but worth every penny be aware of some locals who are out to cause mischief. advise if you want to go to town take a taxi, and let a local friend (if you have any) talk to the driver and you hide because once the taxi driver sees foreigners the prices are hiked big time.

    Dress Code: jeans and t-shirt and sport shoes just keep it simple

    Pretty lively

    Nairobi has pretty good nightlife. Carnivores has bars and entertainment most nights and is good value. Florida is a nightclub which wanted too much money as cover charge so we blew it out and ended up in New Florida. Cover charge, just 200 shillings. Its packed at weekends, with locals, westerners and hookers! Drinks are expensive but get a crowd of ya and get hammered!

    gettin on it!
