The bartenders and wait staff are excellent. Probably the best aspect of Gipsy is the people who run it. Friendly intelligent and long serving. Paul and Kimani the bartenders are as old as the bar itself and you will see why when you go there. Even the janitor is amazing and friendly. The booze selection is good although pricey compared...

Good music. Good drinks. Really fun bar - great if you like dancing. Go with a group so that you can secure a table to yourselves. That makes it easier to watch bags and jackets etc. Otherwise, things are rather open and anyone can join your table.

This is the bar to go at Nairobi. The cocktails are good, they play hiphop and rock. I liked the place.

Gypsies has a strange mix of people that go..(including me) I feel that there are a lot of 'girls'looking for a good time and hoping to pick up... More

Gipsy's is something of an institution. I had lunch and dinner here, and both were excellent. Would recommend to anyone staying in Nairobi.

Eager to show a friend the Nairobi night life, we went to Gipsy's. We asked and asked for an extra 2 seats at the bar, however the bartender, a certain Mr. G. Kimani was reluctant to help. He was insistent that we receive only one seat. Weird, right? Anyway following the intervention of 2 waiters and a waitress (yes, that... More

The food is very good. Not an extensive menu but some good specials. Best to eat early. Once it gets full the waiters will overcharge you, steal your change and let the stray cats put their drinks on your bill. Good for watching sports weekend daytimes.
