Mombasa has one of the wildest night scenes in East Africa, only rivalled by Nairobi’s nightlife. This city has very many good clubs, that are full from Monday to Sunday, and finding the one that fits you can be hard. I have made a list of the 10 hottest clubs to make your choice easier.
Located inside Nyali Centre, along Links Rd, Tapas Cielo is one of the best bars in Mombasa. You can enjoy cocktails and whiskey at the bar while listening to music played by its line-up of world-class DJs.
Tapas Cielo has a really good ambience and décor, and the customer service is world-class. This club is not only one of the best in Mombasa but ranks high on my list of best Kenyan clubs.
This fancy and stylish lounge is also located inside Nyali Centre. Anuba Lounge is the most famous club in Mombasa due to its elegance, and the wealthy crowd the club pulls. The club is full throughout the week and getting in is hard on weekends. When inside finding a table is also really difficult. However, Anuba Lounge has never disappointed when it comes to music and a perfect party atmosphere.
This rooftop lounge located in City Mall is one of my favourites. Sheba Lounge usually hosts a celebrity DJ line-up comprising of DJ Crème and DJ Hypnotic, and international artists such as Sauti Sol have also performed here. The club is really popular with tourists and if you want to have a good time, you can never go wrong with Sheba Lounge.
Danka Grill & Lounge is located in Mtwapa, the party district of Mombasa. If you love partying, you have to stay in Mtwapa. Every day is a Friday in this town. The elegant lounge is located along the Malindi-Mombasa Road and its striking beauty and lights make it hard to miss when driving along the road. Danka has ample parking and the best customer service of all clubs in Mombasa.
Club Hypnotica located along Nyali Road next to Nyali Centre is one of the most popular clubs in Mombasa. And the club deserves the attention it gets. Club Hypnotica has some of the best deals I’ve ever heard, and I’d go as far as saying no club in the world would offer such a deal. One of its recent deals allowed you to bring alcohol from outside, as long as you bought a mixer from them. Other than this wild deal, Hypnotica usually has offers on specific drinks too. Even without the deals, Club Hypnotica would still make it on my list due to its incredible guest DJ line-up and awesome music.
Pirates Beach Bar is located right next to the beach, offering a good view of the ocean as you enjoy your drink. The place gets quite crowded, so long ques are commonplace here. The drinks here are cheap, which is a big plus. Food is also available, although the quality varies.
Florida Night Club & Casino is the most famous Mombasa based club in Kenya, with people of all ages and backgrounds knowing about it. The club has a restaurant, bar and casino. So, this is the perfect spot for gamblers who like to party. Florida Night Club is located next to the beach and beach parties are often held here. It is the most popular club among tourists and foreigners.
8) D’ s Bar and Restaurant
D’s Bar and Restaurant is located along Mt. Kenya Road just a few yards from the beach. D’s offers a beautiful view of the ocean as you eat and drink. And the live band that plays here creates the perfect atmosphere for relaxing. The staff here are really helpful and friendly making you feel welcomed in the restaurant. The cocktails here are really good and I recommend them.
Mint Lounge, located in Bamburi, is known for its beautiful interior design. The music here is good and always booming and the lounge also invites local artists to perform every once in a while. This is the perfect place for music lovers. If you want to watch football, this is also a wonderful place to do so, the numerous screens make sure you will never miss any action.
If you want to enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean as you drink and have a meal, Moonshine Beach Bar in Nyali is the best place to do it. This lounge serves arguably the best food of all the lounges in Mombasa. This is probably because it shares the same Kitchen with Reef Hotel. If you want a relaxed afternoon cocktail, this is a wonderful place to do that. And after 11 pm the place is perfect for parties, as the music is pumped up and the crowds arrive. I suggest you visit Moonshine the next time you are in Mombasa.
