Africa, Nairobi, Nairobi Nightlife, Places, Restaurants (For more: www.eatout.co.ke)

2015 will be an interesting year for Nairobi’s nightlife. With quite a number of new places opening, we have an exciting array of options to choose from. I begin this nightlife journey with the first place to open in 2015, Budhaa Bar.

Just to be clear, this Budhaa Bar is a stand alone venture, not affiliated to other Budha Bars worldwide, well, for now.

Budhaa Bar is located in Westlands, within the Delta Corner complex right at the main Westlands roundabout. It seems there are other venues coming up within the complex, including a new Mercury Lounge.
