Simmers BarNairobi, Kenya
Mingle with the Nairobi locals in the open-air beer garden of Simmers. Local bands bang out anything from Congolese rumba to local rock in this outdoor setting, with beer snacks available at the barbecue food court.
You'll be one of the few tourists here, but don't worry; Simmers welcomes everyone around its central bar. Be warned though, the drinks list isn't anything to rave about. Your best bet is to grab a table and a Tusker long neck and settle in to catch the band.
Check the price of your drink before you order – it’s not unheard of for tourists to be ripped off here.
