I was invited to the pre-opening event before the official launch. Great addition to the Nairobi bar and restaurant scene and I'm sure will be massively popular with party goers in Westlands. The burgers are fantastic and the Enkare beer is definitely worth a try! Brew Bistro roof top has set the bar for 2016.
I visited Brew Bistro Rooftop for their launch party and was amazed by the venue. I'd been waiting for this place to open for quite sometime and wasn't sure what to expect. I heard the set up was very different from the Brew Bistro in Piedmont Plaza and it definitely is.
The decor and branding is distinctively Brew Bistro but the actual layout is drastically different. It reminds me of a beer garden, lots of open space and great views of the city. They have a VIP seating area, an patio with shisha and fire pits, high tables by the bar and low-seating tables by the entrance with a TV to watch sporting matches. The menu is mostly the same as the first Brew Bistro however their lunch menus have some sandwiches and a make-it-yourself noodle option.
Since the launch, I've come here several times for lunch and for happy hour. It's a great place to relax in the afternoons but turns into more of a night club on the evenings, particularly on Fridays and Saturdays. If you plan on visiting on a weekend, I'd suggest going early to make sure you can get in. They've closed their doors before when they've reached capacity plus, service on these days tend to be a little slower due to the amount of foot traffic they get.
I always enjoy Brew Bistro on Ngong Road so was excited to hear they've openend a rooftop bar. From point of view of service, this was to the standard I have been accustomed to from Brew Bistro however I came away feeling this place is targeted to the younger crowd as the music was nearly ear-splitting the whole time we were there! I would visit again but when it has just opened (so we get a seat with a view!) and before the larger crowds check in. Congratulations otherwise to BB for opening what looks to be another successful establishment.
I had a chance to visit the roof top twice . 1 st time during launch the food was ok but tooo crowded . the second time I definitely went for the beer . if only they can increase manpower it would be good but waiting for service for 15min plus can be depressing . shout out to the amazing chef Hector .
The worst place to host an event. We had booked the private launch for a hen night on Friday 17th. We had paid a deposit to reserve the place too. When we got there on Friday, a few minutes later, the waiters let in other people. on requesting for privacy to the waiters, they deny and ask us to speak to the manager. The manager ms first words were "we are here to do business". We can't let 10people use the private launch. When we booked for the launch, I clearly said we shall be 10 confirmed and 2/3 additional will join in later. What is the point of it being called a private launch of there is no privacy? And I had clearly booked the place for a hen night ( bridal shower)!!! We told the manager than if that's the case, we are leaving. He wasn't at all bothered. Worst PR from a manager! Very disappointed!
