it was just what I needed after a great dinner at Hilton nextdoor. The live music was wonderful and the drinks were great. Loved it.

I had the pleasure of performing across Zanzibar for 3 months. Jerry's bar really stood out for me because its totaly authentic and down to earth.I mean you have to time your visit to the tides. That area is dominated by corporate pseudo Afro/European Italian...run bourgeois hotels and exclusive (sic) venues. Or rin down local Shebeens....Jerry's is the only place that actualy has a relaxed natural energy that is both welcoming and refreshing whilst still being elegant and beach friendly. The music selection is absolutely sublime with local and international artists performing, we had a great dance floor bouncing all night long....but most of all the people make the place, your hosts Sabina and Jerry himself are two of the most gracious hosts I have ever met. Go see for yourself! PS ask Jerry to take you out for a catermeran adventure.More

Great place for cocktails!! Didn’t eat there but service was brilliant with comfy seating. Really just a pity that they don’t accept cards as Nungwi lacks cash withdrawal facilities which in turn limits spending on the town. Landed up eating at the Hilton due to...card facilities but really would have loved to eat at Gerrys.More

We arrived at Gerry‘s bar for two sunset beers. The sun set to the left of us and through long shadows on the beach boys playing football just in front of us. Situated at a touristy beach, Gerry‘s bar managed to fight the more commercial...bars with a relaxed music and a hedonistic setting. For a moment we were able to block out the world around us and enjoy the sunset - even it came at 6000 shilling per pint.More
