I was there for the friday night rooftop bar, and it is a great place to start your night. Met a ton of new interesting people, both locals and expats. Decent price on drinks, nice bar and dance area. In general a good place to hang out and relax.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon for a cold drink in between apartment viewings and it was great! The selection of alcoholic beverages is excellent - the first time I've seen Savannah cider or Desperados beer in Kenya outside of expensive bars in Nairobi. Prices are fair, and the drinks are unusually cold for Kenya! The view is great and... More

Very cozy and fairly tidy. don't expect 5 star quality, but go there for a drink and a talk. Lots of birds of prey circeling above you and the park is just opposite, and so are the shopping streets.

What can be better than catching a bit of breeze from Lake Victoria, enjoying a chilled wine, having wifi to check the latesta and last but not least enjoy a mouth watering meal.

The view is great, but the food isn't. The service was not very good, and they couldn't split the bill.
