“Nairobi gets cooler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Cool place for beers: house brews and many more. Cool place for eating: they can serve you (almost) everything and it's just as it has to be, lick your fingers! Ambience may be a little improved, I understand great efforts have been done here. What else? Don't miss while in town.

“PERFECT HANGOUT JOINT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

I like the fact that the dinning area and hang out area have been separated. If you are looking to go catch a meal, you will have your dinning section tends to be a bit private and if you want to hang/ go out it is separated. I do like that idea as one will have their own space for enjoying heir meal. This has been the most appropriate hangout joint for me. Anytime you like to to out I would recommend Brew Bistro. The ambiance, the crowd, the drinks..name them. All enjoyable. But over the weekends mostly Fridays, make sure to reserve a table in advance.. And by advance I mean exactly that, sometimes even a weeks advance will guarantee you a table. but that should not discourage you, you will always end up getting space from those leaving. For a person who loves cocktails, they make among the best cocktails have ever had, you will not be disappointed. I love going here with my friends and girls, it always ends up to be one of those memorable evenings. I almost forgot to mention the music, I love Fridays as they usually bring one of the best djs in town. Only time am disappointed is when I want to hang out till late over weekdays as they usually close early at around midnight. Otherwise, plan to go here and you should not be disappointed.

“Always a delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

The Brew Bistro is a favourite of ours with a great menu choice, lovely ambience and different setting. They brew their own beer on location and also have a fine dining restaurant. The roof top gets extremely busy, so it is advisable to book a table especially on Wednesday Salsa nights and weekends. The balcony can get very smokey for a non smoker however, but there is limited indoor seating available.

“great local beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Great place to hang out, recommend to order the special with the beers they brew. The beer is excellent, and saying that as one who usually doesn't enjoy beer. Minus is that it can become way too crowded on the busiest nights, plus is that the food is also very good.

“extremely noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Food is okay and the ambiance nice and modern. However do not forget to bring ear plugs! It is a din where conversation is impossible. In the weekends extremely busy, hardly space to move around. I will give it a miss in future.
