Brew is a popular place to party, it provides an excellent atmosphere for food, drink and music. They have one of the most acclaimed mixologist- so any cocktail you order will be superb. The food is also great - a good place for burgers! The music will ensure that you’re ready for the perfect night out. I'd advice that you... More

So this is a burger joint. .I wanted to try the burgers but first the drinks. We drink Smirnoff Red vodka, made in Kenya. The usual price is 250 ksh per shot. They don't sell it - only more expensive brands. So the least expensive vodka is 400ksh per shot, rising to 800ksh per shot. We had one drink and... More

Alot of mzungus (white/foreign) hang out here at night. Great music and atmosphere only thing is you have to go early to get a table otherwise you'll be standing the whole night.

This is a very nice place that had the atmosphere of an American restaurant. The food is good, and they have several different brews are made in house (a nice change from Tusker). Beers are buy-one-get-one-free during happy hour, which is 5-7pm. I would definitely return. Ask for Curtis.

As an American, I'm often disappointed by burgers in Nairobi, but never at Brew Bistro. They have several kinds to choose from (even lamb!), the meat is good quality and the Belgian fries are also my favorite in Nairobi. The staple beers they brew are pretty good (Hefeweizen is hit or miss), and happy hour is buy one get one.... More

As everyone has pointed out so far, this is definitely an expat bar but the beer is great. Happy hour is 2 for 1 beers or mojitos from 5-7pm. We happened to be there on a Tuesday and it was build your own burger night! Uh yes. I had a falafel burger with avacado, mango chutney, and tomato with the... More

You see a lot of expats here. There is a lot of beer, however for a bar the list of other drinks available is rather limited. Food is ok, it is a burger place. If you come early enough you can enjoy a nice chat with friends. Once the music starts it is so loud that conversations are not possible... More
