Nice place for a drink with friends, went on a Saturday night nice tunes. Evans was great, nice fellow knows his drinks. Just a suggestion on the bar stools they are too large for the space when it's packed. The service team is good too. The Manager was friendly as well and made some recommendations to suit the celebration.Thank you... More

Mercury lounge is normally a good place to go for drinks. I have never thought much of their food. I think its probably best to just stick to the drinks. The atmosphere is very good for a night out. However as the clock ticks away and it gets later in the night, the volume keeps getting louder and louder. Problem... More

I was visiting a group of people yesterday and went straight from the airport. I was dressed in cargo pants, shirt and slippers. I was denied entry as I was wearing slippers. This is insulting as there were no signs to alert customers!! Last place to visit. We all shifted to the place exactly opposite, Seven Grill & Lounge. That... More

If you know people in Nairobi, this is a great place to go and hang out. Basically its a mid-range priced bar, where you can be at peace but also talk to interesting locals who live in the area. The crowd there makes it particularly great. The food and the drinks are just ok, but the type of crowd that... More

I must say that the food we all ordered as a group was great but it took too long for the food to be ready. One person had to wait for almost an hour for his food. As for me I had to get my own drink from the bar. I was not sure if I will get on time... More

Mercury Lounge ABC version to the one of the best places in Nairobi and my favorite spots in Nairobi for drinks after work. The interior is exceptionally done and superior quality, sweet music played well and the bites are excellent. Unfortunately, I would recommend some improvement on the Service probably through training and visible supervision. The ambiance is exciting.
