Merry Making Guide

written by Yummy Team 26th December 2018

If you’re not staying up too late and finding new spots to hang out during the holidays, then what is the point of drinkcember? Let us guide you through the streets of Nairobi and help pick your new favourite haunts so you can Lite the way with Tusker Lite!

For the dancers (even the awkward ones)

The Alchemist

The melting pot of Nairobi where you can find all sorts of people and actually be okay with it! A large dance floor and epic stage make it a great spot to do those weird moves. With a wide group of DJ’s, live music and acts, you’re spoiled for choice.


Not your usual dancing spot, but with that much great music, does it really matter? Mercury is almost always packed and sure, you might get a few drinks spilt on you but once you get hooked on the music, none of that will matter.

Kiza Lounge

Located off Argwings Kodhek Road at Galana Plaza, Kiza has become one of the most popular spots on the weekend when you’re looking to let loose with friends. With an impressive menu and space, Kiza has several theme nights to enjoy and various DJ’s to keep you moving all night long!

Go for the view

La Mesa

On the 15th floor of Mövenpick Hotel, La Mesa is a quaint two-level bar perfect for football lovers or chill drinkers. Enjoy a game of pool, Tusker Lite and a view of Westlands that will transport you to another place. The yellow lights of the city and the warmth of the bar will make this spot your new favourite.

Captains Terrace

Overlooking the Nairobi National Park, you can enjoy the view and the drinks! This bar is on Mombasa Road and takes you away from the chaos on the roads. If you want to go for a road trip but don’t want to go far, this is the place to be!

Listen to it live

Geco Cafe

While you sip on a Tusker Lite, listen to soothing live music surrounded by books and a chilled out crowd looking for good music. Geco Cafe is one of those new places that is slowly becoming a local haunt and with it’s Friday live music sessions, we totally get it!


It’s Thursday Nite Live at J’s! Listen to new and known local artists presented by Roots International. With a huge space and casual seating, J’s is the new live music spot that makes your Thursday a lot more entertaining than before!

Honourable mentions:

Deja Vu

Vineyard is now Deja Vu. You can expect the same good music and lots of dancing space.

Tusker Lite Bar- Ibis Styles

A view and Tusker Lite sundowners are a norm here. Try the chicken wings when you go, thank us later.

The Yard

Located on Kiambu Road, The Yard is a secret spot for lovers of live music. Don’t expect fancy decor, go for the beer and stay for the music.

Mama Rocks

You love their burgers, but have you tried their cocktails? These quirkily named cocktails are a great way to welcome in 2019 while devouring great food with it!
