The restaurant has a huge menu, with something for everyone to choose from. The service was fantastic and the ambiance in the restaurant was very cool, with a well done industrial/natural theme.

I went here a weekend night of my trip. It seems to attract both a local and expat crowd. It was definitely a packed crowd. The music was almost all American Trap Music with a sprinkle of Reggae. I think I heard only one or two songs the entire night originating from Africa.

Mercury has consistently served the best cocktails in Nairobi. The atmosphere is very cozy. They also serve a wide range of tantalizing bar snacks - I highly recommend the mini steaks.

Always enjoy myself here, they have great music on Saturdays and a mature crowd. The service is good, especially love the chicken wings served with a hot sauce.

I went for a few drinks before a meal at Seven (next door) and had a very enjoyable time. Im told that it has more of a party atmosphere on the weekends, and attracts a great crowd. Recommended.

Lots of seating places and you can be either indoors or outdoors. They serve all drinks and have an extensive drinks menu (from cocktails to shots to beer to whisky). You will find almost everything. They also serve finger foods and proper meals served with a warm towel to cleans your hands before your finger foods. Try their meat balls... More

Went in late to get a bite after a few drinks and it was the best decision ever. The waiters were very helpful and explained everything clearly. The menu is awesome, and their drinks menu was even more awesome... 😎 I have to go back before leaving Nairobi.

Nice spot to hang out with friends. However it tends to get really packed on Friday and Saturday nights, and mobility becomes kind of difficult as the lounge is not what one can describe as being spacious. Catching the Bar tenders eye is also a challenge, and their drinks are a bit on the pricey side.
