During the day, do all those things listed in the Sites section, or go see a movie at one of Nairobi’s 1st class cinemas. Consult the Daily Nation Newspaper for daily listings of the movies and times. If you’re the type who wants to explore a bit of the Nairobi nightlife and safari, it may be wise to start at bar first, since the clubs and discos in Kenya don’t get busy until around midnight and don’t close until the sun rises. By far your best source of info on what's rocking on any given weekend is a local.

The end of month weekend offers the best local action.Several clubs stage "cultural nites" which feature music ,traditional foods and drinks from some of Kenya's main ethinic communities .An excellent opprtuinty to see Kenyans unplugged and hear the biggest local music acts .The Daily Nation on the last friday of the month has an extensive listing.Worth seeing are shows featuring the following "Tony Nyandundo" ,"Mike Rua" or "Ken Wamaria"

A Cafe runs during all opening hours - however the main attraction is their lively nightclub. There's a dancefloor on bottom level. 2 bars inside lounge upstairs one bar outside w/a sportsbar atmosphere.  Entrance on Friday and Saturday nights is 500/= per person.

Pango (F3)

Edit This

This cocktail loung is located on Moi Avenue and attracts a lot of expats, tourists and upper class nairobians. It's small and cosy and there are sexy dancers on all night long. Depending on the night they can be very wild!

Had a great time, even though it is a bit pricey. It's a good place to hook up with the local ladies also.

Simba Saloon

Edit This

The nicest disco in Nairobi is by far the Simba Saloon at the Carnivore Restaurant on Langata Road. The place is huge, with three separate bars, room outside and a large dance floor. This club would even be impressive if it was in America. The disco is frequented by upper class Kenyans, expats, and tourists. Needless to say, it’s expensive. Cover charge ranges from KSh 280 to up to 1000, depending on the attraction for the night. Wednesday night is Rock Night. Saturday night is Bombay Night and Sunday Night is 'Soul Night' with beats from the 80's.

Modern Green Day & Night Club and Friendship Corner

Edit This

If you’re more into the cheap local scene, I have two bars for you. The Modern Green Day & Night Club and Friendship Corner, both across from each other on Latema Road are maybe the most entertaining bars in town. Instead of buying beers for KSh 100 like you would at the Floridas or Simba Saloon, they sell for a measly KSh 65. The bars are periodically shut down for health standards, but if they’re open, give them a try! Remember to be careful, they’re in a partly dangerous part of town. You may come across local women looking for men. They may not be interested in more..
