Brewery

“Brew Bistro offers a nice selection of delicious beer from Big Five Brewery. They also have a variety of delicious food available and good deals every day of the week. We recommend going during happy hour to take advantage of the two for one pitcher deals. The rooftop location offers beautiful views of the city and an interesting venue when the place becomes a club later in the night. The club is a popular destination for both expats and locals. ”

Hotel
“One of Nairobi’s most upmarket hotels is situated in a leafy part of the city. Inside, it’s luxuriously decorated, and they have a great little coffee lounge in the lobby serving consistently good brewed coffee. It’s a nice spot to visit because you can order at the bar and then head outside to sit by the pool. They’re not trying to do anything particularly clever with the coffee here—it’s simply about being in a nice location and having a well-brewed coffee.”
