Nairobi West began as a residential area, in the 60's most of the residents in this area were European and Asian, it was one of the suburbs in Nairobi that was considered upmarket, more indigenous Kenyans began to buy property in this area, it still retains its upmarket status, but it has become more of a meeting spot for people of all classes, as pubs, and entertainment venues are most prominent. The council zoning of this residential estate may soon be changed into a fully commercial zone, as more and more offices, pub, and businesses are established. Nairobi West is conveniently close to most of the major attractions that one would want to visit in Nairobi, it is 5 Kilometers from the Nairobi National Park gate, 2 Kilometers from The Carnivore restaurant, in a suburb that it 2 Kilometers from the City Center. If you would want a genuine feel of Nairobi's party scene, as well as a view of the Nairobi National Park, and a visit to Carnivore restaurant, Nairobi West is your staging ground.
