“Modern Nairobi”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Well known place in Westands. Years ago was quite small and the indian owner is purchasing all small shops around... now the bar occupies the whole floor...
Drinks are very expensive and just decent quality (Gin tonic, Rum and coke, etc...). It could be a lot better considering the prices.
Lot of prostitutes around, not aggressive but giving you the feeling they are clearly hunting....
Ok place to go out with friends... once in a while.
Too many screens and only the boring UK football... they should show something different too...
Food is expensive too and not really good....
Service is too pushy... someone asking you every 3 minutes if you want to drink...
nahhhhhh lot of better places where to go in NBO.....

“Great to Watch Football”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I am a huge football fan and as a tradition, my friends and I watch the big games at Gipsy. They have multiple screens and one projector screen, and a great crowd. I'm not a drinker, but my friends are always complaining about how expensive the alcoholic beverages are over there. However, I have eaten at their restaurant, which is rather pricy but worthwhile. The food is very good and it is OK to spend a little more once in a while.

“Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

A well situated bar in the upmarket Westlands area. Good security & table service.
Plenty of ex-pats, so you know that it's one of the safer places to eat & drink and they are not adverse to showing the UK football league.
