Modern Green Bar: Spend a day getting bladdered
Not what it used to be but still one of my favourite bars in Nairobi, Kenya or the world.The Green is situated on Latema road just the wrong side of town but near enough to the centre of Nairobi. The first time I entered the Green it was standing room only, these days it is not as busy, but get in there on a weekend at the end of the month when pay packets have just been opened finding a seat is not so easy. It wasn’t so long ago that this place used to be open 24 hours a day. In those days you could quite happily drink through the night sometimes not realising it was morning till the paper boys came around the tables selling that morning’s paper. In recent years the door is closed at midnight weather there are people inside or not, the bouncer on the door will open the door when you are ready to stagger home.The Green Bar is also known as the mortuary not becaose half the customers spend the night comatose untill the first bus leaves in the morning but because that is what this place used to be. I've also heard it called 'MGB' or in the days of the former president 'Moi Girls'!There is serious building work going on at the moment above Nairobi's finest drinking establishment which will soon become Green Court Hotel, where they are planning to have bed and breakfast accomadation. Very handy.Its also worth going into the Green just to see the Jukebox. Put yer 20 bob in and watch a Ken Wa Maria vid.

Hi Ian,
Well once in a while I love to go out, the places I love to visit are the Sherlocks Den, very nice place situated on Ngong Road at Nakumatt Prestige, the good thing about the place it is a 24hour running business, drinks and food any time of the day. They also have special says like Thirsty Thursday where u buy one drink and get one free, Karookee nights on Fridays. Basically it is my kind of place to chill with friends.
For Rave, I would say the Carnivore great place as well and lots to eat and all types of meat as well.
The Florida 2000 is another great club where I can dance the night away as well.
The Village Market is another favorite where u can drink and eat as well.
I do not frequently visit clubs but i can i can say Nairobi clubs are the best clubs in the Country. They offer very good entertainment.
I usually go to clubs especially when i am taking travelers out for a night.
I like clubs because they relieve me from stress and make me feel free and nice
Yap i do like going to clubs and club Riviera is ma favourite club
Yes i do.
My favourite spot is Psys Langata
Olepolos is my favourite joint out of town along Magadi Road some few kilometers from Town.. enjoy
Westy;Black Diamond, Havanna, psys, loft my selection is based on my experience with their entrance security. Within town. Not really recommendable because of the safety factor! maybe jockey club Hilton for kareokey friday,but drinks are a bit expensive.Secrets lounge in the uptown area is really nice on Fridays, . Harligham; Coco j, Alfajiri really relaxed joints...Clubbing and rev's in Nairobi is funny you just have to club hopp to have a good night never stay in one place for more than an hour. Thursday, Friday, Saturday...Nothing beats a night you go all Vicarious fulfill all your kinky desires!!! Cheers!
tropez is my place
to be specific i like clubs eg frolida 2000,black diamond,skippers,villagers.
Nairobi has many places to go for clubbing,
Nairobi is the best with peoples joint clubs and where you can rave all night long.

As a social person;
In downtown: wallets, hornbills,tacos, maggies etc
