“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.

“go with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

This place has the best music in westlands. Like everyone else mentions, it's full of hookers. If that makes you uncomfortable, don't go to East Africa. Beer is expensive. That's westlands. Tons of expats and Nairobians hang out there, they're always really cool, friendly people. Gipsys bumps full-on on a Thursday night.

“Good night club”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Not bad if you do not mind the hundreds of ladies of the night flowing around and mingling. They are not that forceful though and will leave you in peace or just be good company. The music is good for dancing, but the dance floor is small and often very crowded.

“Full of hookers....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

but a pretty good atmosphere with friends. Drinks aren't the cheapest in Westlands, but you have 3 different style of bars. Some bars don't serve certain drinks, like Guiness or Tusker. The bar on the left is generally choc-a-block with 'working girls', the one of the right generally does not let 'them' in, and is usually filled with Indians. The middle bar is kind of, well, in the middle. Music gets loud around 9pm+ and generally plays the same stuff as most clubs in the area. It's also the only gay-friendly establishment I've seen in the area. Generally safe and a good place to hang out with friends. Oh, and awesome during football...
