Not enough honey in the cocktail called Dawa- I had to keep asking for more honey. If you are going to copy Carnivores' ( another bar in Nairobi) signature cocktail, try and get it right. A no smoking sign but they serve shisha and make other people inhale the smoke. Lastly, they make u crawl under the barrier at the... More

Okay this is Nairobi nightlife at its best. Be warned, there are plenty of nigh ladies who will be watching you like a hawk. If it is not your thing then steer clear or just go with friends for drinks

Located on the highway on westlands. It is more a bar than anything else. Frequented more by Kenyans than foriegnors.

Good place for a Friday night out.Good music I must say Location is somehow tricky due to the small parking available. Soo if your driving you will be forced to look for parking on the side roads of the busy highway..V.I.P section always reserved and some nights no one really gets to seat in the V.I.P area.. The guy in... More

I frequent Galileo- Waiyaki way on Thursday nights for jazz, usually after work hoping to have a few drinks with friends and probably a meal. But every Thursday all seats except bar stools are always reserved, and they remain reserved most of the night, after 3 hours on stools we always bow out for other places. Except for the lady...

We, a group of 5 people, living for 3 months in Nairobi went to Galileo just to notice that one of our friends was thrown out barely 5 minutes after we entered. The reason was that he had not ordered a drink. How can you force someone to buy a drink in the first minutes of arrival. The staff is... More

I have been to both Galileo's on Waiyaki way and the other in town at lifestyle shopping centre. i must say the owner has really invested in interiors and music to try and impress...i used to frequent the town one for the sweetest buffet ever during the week until they discontinued the other day. that was sad...one thing though they...
