“Great to Watch Football”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I am a huge football fan and as a tradition, my friends and I watch the big games at Gipsy. They have multiple screens and one projector screen, and a great crowd. I'm not a drinker, but my friends are always complaining about how expensive the alcoholic beverages are over there. However, I have eaten at their restaurant, which is rather pricy but worthwhile. The food is very good and it is OK to spend a little more once in a while.

“Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
