“Good night club”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Not bad if you do not mind the hundreds of ladies of the night flowing around and mingling. They are not that forceful though and will leave you in peace or just be good company. The music is good for dancing, but the dance floor is small and often very crowded.

“Full of hookers....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

but a pretty good atmosphere with friends. Drinks aren't the cheapest in Westlands, but you have 3 different style of bars. Some bars don't serve certain drinks, like Guiness or Tusker. The bar on the left is generally choc-a-block with 'working girls', the one of the right generally does not let 'them' in, and is usually filled with Indians. The middle bar is kind of, well, in the middle. Music gets loud around 9pm+ and generally plays the same stuff as most clubs in the area. It's also the only gay-friendly establishment I've seen in the area. Generally safe and a good place to hang out with friends. Oh, and awesome during football...

“Great place to party!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Gipsy Bar at the heart of Westlands ist the perfect venue for a weekend night. It's made up of several indoor bars and restaurants and has a large outside seating and dancing area. The atmosphere is easy going and liberal, pulling in a mixed crowd of expants, Kenyans and some 'chasing women'. You'll meet very stylish freaky night owls as well as casual down to earth ones. Service is efficient, music a great mix of western and kenyan Pop.
