Reviewed 10 April 2013

This is not a tourists spot, which is exactly what my brother and I were looking for on our last night in Nairobi. Unfortunately we'd gotten accustom to using US$ and had dumped all our KSh and when the credit card machine wouldn't accept my Visa card I just overpaid in US$ to resolve the issue. It is very obvious when you get to a spot that doesn't cater to tourists. We noticed that our first round of Tuskers was about 50% more than any other round (the Tourist Reverse Discount). We still enjoyed ourselves and were glad we got out in the city and the patrons seemed to not mind us hanging out, it was just the staff that seemed annoyed. It must have been throwback Friday because the DJ was playing all the club hits from my high school days, Skee Lo, Luniz, Coolio, Blackstreet, DMX...old school stuff. Good times!

has no enough parking space for its clientele who are forced to park along a busy and risky highway. It's small in size too with no clear fire exit plan or layout. They also sell erinks to underage iids with big bodies

Yup the place is very afro music kinda club. I didnt liek it simply because of music but the placegets so busy on friday or sat nights that one has to park his/her car hundreds of meters away on the highway but dont worry the parking is managed by the extra security the club hires on such nights.

been to this place twice, first time the experience was fine, we went for some drinks and good music and enjoyed the place. Second time the place was really crowded and too many single girls around trying to get to you......
