Visited Gispy bar 2-3 times during my business trip to Nairobi. It is good place to visit after office hours or on weekends. It is quite popular bar in Expat community and tourists. The dance floor becomes overcrowded in midnight. Security is good in the bar and i have seen bouncers throwing the miscreants out of the bar. :) Good... More

Still a staple for expats and tourists in Nairobi. They have jacked up the security a bit by cordoning off the outside area so it has lost a bit of its street-side cafe feel. The beers are cheap and the crowd is fun. There are always lots of hookers but they don't hassle anyone. Always open for a late night... More

I really like going here - it has something for everyone of all ages, but later at night can be a bit overwhelming with all the instant "lady friends". Not a judgment call - I just feel uncomfortable being stared at for hours when my only interest is to have a drink, watch some sports on one of the many... More

Not the cheapest but a pleasant atmosphere. Drinks rather expensive and some dodgy characters floating about...More than one venue which is good. Excellent for watching sport.

If your into dumps, this is your place. If being pestered by prostitutes for the night is your thing this is your place, that said that goes for most bars in Nairobi you can't seem to get away from it so I cant make my mind up if they are a Kenyan tourist attraction or not. enjoy

Located in westlands, this is one of the popular bars to visit on a night out in Nairobi. Mostly visited by expats it has a great vibe. Not far from other great bars like black diamonds and havanas. A must if your on a night out....

A long standing and ever popular part of the Westlands nightlife, always busy, enjoy it for what it is, a simple popular bar

Loved the fact that after a few nights we were paying 'local prices' for the Tusker! (Ask for it biridi though!)
