Best Bar In Kenya

1.  Milan

Located in Mirage Tower – Westlands, Milan is the most exclusive club in East Africa. From the fancy fittings to the gold-accented décor I doubt there is a more beautiful club in the city. The amazing music and beautiful ladies make the club a fun place to party.

Drinks in this club are expensive, with some bottles costing KSh 100,000. But quality comes at a price, so that is to be expected. Luckily, the cocktails here are quite affordable, with a long island costing roughly KSh 750. 

2.  40Forty Lounge

Located on the top floor of Crossroads Plaza on Westlands Road Nairobi, 40Forty Lounge is one of the popular clubs of Westlands.

On the weekends the club is usually full which is perfect for a night out of partying. The VIP lounge in 40Forty is also really good and perfect if you want to enjoy a drink away from the crowd.

3.  Mercury Lounge Nairobi

Located in ABC Place off Waiyaki Way, Mercury Lounge is criminally underrated. However, it’s loyal patrons always show up every weekend to drink and dance the night away.

The food here is also really good, and the cocktails are among the best of any bar in the area. The music is also really good which always keeps the crowd hyped.

4.  Kentwood Address

Located off Kiambu Road, Kentwood Address is one of my favorite clubs of 2023. With a spacious dancefloor and plenty of room to sit and relax, you and your friends are guaranteed to have a good time here. Kentwood’s prices are friendly and the music here is amazing.

However, my favorite aspect of the club is its design. There are plenty of private party rooms within the club fitted with screens, speakers, and also bathrooms/ showers.

5.  The Alchemist

Located in Westlands The Alchemist is one of the most popular clubs in Nairobi. The outdoor seating provides the perfect atmosphere for drinking and eating. There are three food carts within the premises that serve a wide variety of food, with the chicken burgers being a favorite of many.

One of Alchemist’s allure is its happy hour which runs from 1 pm to 6 pm, making it one of the longest happy hours in Nairobi. The club however is more popular due to its events, where they bring the best DJs to play Afro-house and HipHop weekly.

6.  Brew Bistro Fortis

With good music, a wonderful crowd, and friendly staff Brew Bistro is one of my favorite bars in Westlands. It’s always full throughout the weekend which makes it a wonderful place to chill or party.

The food here is also really good and their Sunday offer of bottomless food and bottomless cocktails is the best way to experience all the offerings on their menu. Brew Bistro is located on the top floor of Fortis Tower in Westlands and I highly recommend it.

7.  Tamarind Dhow

With beautiful views of the Mombasa Channel and old harbor, this restaurant and bar have one of the best settings, unrivaled anywhere else. The food at Tamarind Dhow is also of a world-class standard and the sea breeze accentuates the aroma of the food.

The bar serves a wide variety of drinks with Scottish single malt whisky being their specialty. Their stable includes 12-year-old Glenkinchie, 12-year-old Cragganmore, and 10-year-old Talisker. This is the highest-rated club from Mombasa in my Top 20 Bars in Kenya.

What is the main drink in Kenya?

The national beverage is chai – tea. Universally drunk at breakfast and as a pick-me-up at any time, the traditional way of making it is a weird variant on the classic British brew: milk, water, lots of sugar, and tea leaves are brought to the boil in a kettle and served scalding hot (chai asli).
