As of late 2014, a couple of venue owners to be had spoken to me about their upcoming bars and restaurants. Every time I met friends they would ask me what is new in Nairobi and I would run through the list again and again.. And then I remembered that I had a blog I could send them to with a list of places to check out in 2015. Here is the list, party people!
1. The Wet Lounge & Grill
This venue is set to open in a couple of months. The owners are a lovely couple who invited me for a private viewing yesterday.. I liked what I saw.
The Wet lounge will be for the grown up crowd, with food available too within the premises. I will add further details the closer they are to opening.
Caramel Lounge opened its doors in 2014 to a great reception in Nairobi. They are now have special offers which include the Happy Hours from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. There is also a ladies night every Wednesday evening with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine for ladies followed by half off on all signature cocktails all night…
I am really looking forward to the opening of Gossip Lounge. The dynamic pair behind this lounge are Barry and Samia. You may have seen them cruising around Nairobi in their Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce or Hummer… This couple is keen in turning up the heat in the Nairobi nightlife 🙂
Avi invited me to check out Budhaa Bar way before it opened. I liked the concept. Little did I know Dom Pérignon Champagne would be keen on getting involved too. Now Nairobi has its own exclusive Dom Pérignon affiliated Bar in the heart of Westlands. Check it out guys!
I am yet to set foot in Juniper Kitchen. The main reason it made it to this list is because of the raving reviews I have heard from my friends who have been there so far. They love it! Stop by and let us know what you think of the place!
Ok, so this is not a “new” venue in Nairobi. Florida is Nairobi’s oldest nightclub. They reopened earlier this year at a new venue one street away from the older venue. The management is keen on giving Nairobi a fantastic nightclub experience seven nights a week…. Here are pictures of the new venue..
7. Marina Bay Lounge
My boy Amor Thige is in the process of setting up the Marina Bay Lounge in Mombasa. It is located within the luxurious English Point Marina. This will be the place to be in Mombasa when it opens…
8. Unnamed Club/Lounge (Coming Soon!)
A dear friend is finalising on yet another lounge in Westlands. The project is about four months away. I will definitely let you know about the club once they are almost open.
There you go! Let me know if I left out any new places in Nairobi and Mombasa….
