“Great for dancing but come early to get good parking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Galileo is one of only a handful of clubs that is aimed at adults. The crowd is mature and the music is excellent, a nice mix of Kenyan, dombolo, kwaito, hip hop and of course all the pop hits.

There's a main dancefloor with lots of seating and there's a VIP section in the back, also with it's own dancefloor. The main area is way more fun.

Went there a few weeks agao and there was an abduncance of teenage looking people and the crowd seemed a bit more aggressive and we actually didn't stay. Not sure if the bouncers are getting more slack, hopefully it was a one time occurence.

“Great pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

I always enjoy stopping here for pizza when in Nairobi. It's every bit as delicious as pizza in Canada. No need to worry about cleanliness or safety. Enjoy!

“"Vibrant, modern, stylish!!!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

To me this is currently the best party scene in Nairobi. Great ambience, affordable local beers and very decent crowd. Galileos is basically two clubs in one. One side has a sizeable dance floor while the other lounge basically is kind of a sports bar. Be careful to get there a bit earlier, possibly around 10pm because parking can be a problem. The late you get there, the further you will park your car. Sometimes it can get really congested which could be a turn off. Otherwise, it's a great place! Loved it.

“Currently the most fabulous revellers spot in Nairobi.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2011

The club experience between 11:30pm and 3:00am is to die for.
