“Standard Nairobi Swank”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

On weekdays, it's a nice place for a quiet drink. They often have cool events or music on the weekends. I like that the restaurant, bar, and outdoor seating are separated so you can sort of choose your own adventure, even when they're blasting music inside. Food and drinks are a bit pricey, but so far everything I've tasted has been good.

“Pizza and Shisha.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

A Disco Bar attatched to an Italian Reastaurant.
The Italian is good food at a fairly hefty price, not much more to say than that.
The bar is good. There are two sections inside and a garden.
Inside there is a dance floor and bar in one half that doesn't do much for me - too bright, not my taste!
Next to that there is a quieter more subdued relaxation area. There are seats, tables, cushions and best of all there are the couch/bed style loungers. Take your shoes off, climb aboard and chill out. They give you a tray for your drinks, shisha service is separate from drinks so double check your bill at the end as the shisha may not be included.
The garden is a lovely place to relax with large charcoal braziers to keep away the chill.
All in all a lovely place to chill out with friends and the clent mix reflects it.

“Shisha”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

the place has a very antique morrocan style or it has a bit of swahili arabic taste especially the furniture. I loved the bonfire and theres a restaurant past the bar that you dont actually notice cos its behind the wall. the shisha was great and the waiter was standby to keep it going ( it wasnt mine though, it was my boyfriends) and save for the projector and the big screen with football on it all night long, it was actually nice and cosy. te disco bar was great too until it got fully packed and crazy. its a good blend of crazy party, cosy and good food joint. I loved it!

“Really cool vibe and lovely decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Great chilled out bar with comfy Morrocan-style seating (sofas/quilted benches) and very cool stone interior walls. Reasonable prices for drinks considering. Worth an evening visit.
