Too many working girls

We loved the roof top and the band, as the ambience was great. However for a non-smoker, this is not the place to be as shisha smoking is prevelant and so are ciggarettes, and there is no getting away from it. Unfortunately working girls have taken over this establishment and most of the clients... read more

The Sarabi Pool and Supper Club is a trendy, atmospheric pool & club that is an excellent place to go hang out in Nairobi. Located on a rooftop site at the Sankara Hotel, this is a popular place to chil lout and have a lovely evening. Nice!

Great and lovely rooftop bar however it was pretty full of prostitutes (at least 7) waiting for customers. We did not expected this in such a nice hotel. Place is not cheap and the white wine on the menu was not available.

On top of the Sankara Hotel, this is a great place for drinks and meeting friends - not exactly cheap but quite a place all the same. If you have trouble with heights be aware there is a glass floor to cross to get into it!

The rooftop bar and restaurant is a lovely place and can be quite the romantic setting for couples. The staff are smart, well trained, attentive and courteous. The sheesh smoking can be unbecoming to non smokers though they have designated areas for non smokers, however, you are still exposed to second-hand smoke. The cuisine is excellent and the variety is... More

We had lunch at the roof top bar. The view was beautiful and the food was amazing. I would definitely go back, especially in the evening, considering the view. It is rather pricey (with a local beer at twice the normal price), but it is definitely worth it, occasionally. Also, the ladies' bathroom smells of bubblegum!!!

Went there basically looking for a Sheesha spot in Nairobi. The ambience was really cool, it was a movie night and they were showing "Schindler's List"; proves the good taste of the management, I'd say. The bar food and snacks were good. We had their Club Sandwich which was not disappointing but wasn't special. The Sheesha was really good. Prices... More
