NightLife

Casablanca is a hip Moroccan-style nightclub in a central position of Nairobi, easy to reach from all areas. It attracts travelers, expats and locals and because it’s not huge, it tends to have a very friendly and sociable atmosphere! Late nights/early mornings are practically guaranteed! The club is divided into 3 areas all based on a Bedouin/North African theme: The inner lounge area resembles a Bedouin tent, filled with brightly coloured cushioned seats, Shisha pipes and it has an international atmosphere. It’s a great place to relax, sprawl, socialise and people watch in this smoky atmospheric environment. The dance area and bar is small and intimate, a great place to let go of your inhibitions and dance to the funky mix of local Nairobi dance music and western beats. Outside, a courtyard provides a place to cool down or warm up! People huddle around open fire pits in the cool evening air.
