Why locals recommend it
The place to go in Nairobi. An open-air bar and club in the heart of the city, it’s paving the way for a new generation of artists to showcase their talents. There’s a vibrant, mixed, welcoming crowd here most every night, listening to live music or chilling at one of the bars. Wednesday is reggae night, Thursday is hip hop with Mix Master Lenny. Go find the secret Tipsy Gypsy Bar. It’s tucked away at the back and is filled with low tables, colourful cushions, and patterned throws, and you can always get a seat here.

One of Westlands' best nights out, Alchemist is an all-encompassing take on the Nairobi night, with the city's best DJs, terrific food (and a food truck outside) and bar staff (mixologists…) adept at creating perfect cocktails. There's an outdoor lounge area for when the dancing gets too hot and…
