African Restaurant

“Love it or hate it, Carnivore serves up Kenya's most famous nyama choma (barbecued meat) – it's been an icon for tourists, expats and wealthier locals for over 25 years. At the entrance is a huge barbecue pit laden with real swords of beef, pork, lamb, chicken and farmed game meats such as crocodile and ostrich. It's a memorable night out.”

“This joint is also located in Westlands, situated right next to Unga House. Albeit not having been in existence for a long time, The Alchemist is growing to become a favourite entertainment joint for a huge number of Nairobi residents attracting lots of revellers with every passing weekend. What makes this popular club tick is generally the atmosphere.”

Nightclub
$$$
“Privee is where the “it” crowd goes. It’s a big club that can accommodate about a thousand people and they have a large balcony that juts out over the street. With clubs and music below, you feel part of the nightlife action. The music is mainly hip hop and R&B, and they feature a lot of live international artists. I like to start off my evenings at Brew, which is in the same building, and end up at Privee to dance until the early hours.”
