Want to catch some live, crispy cool tunes as you enjoy your cold drink at night, Nairobi has quite the venues for that, Oliza is on a mission to discover the faces and places behind an intoxicating live music scene that distills the best the capital has to offer.

Let’s start with the basics, to find information on such venues, the probable place would be Facebook as most places have pages if not websites. To find some one-off gigs, you can also find them in the local dailies on Friday and Saturday in the local dailies. Also there is this super awesome thing we do as Oliza that lets you find anything you may need in the city, yes, including live bands.

So let’s talk about some cozy spots with some soul-stirring music from some live bands shall we?

 Sip and Lip Grill Lounge

irst up is Sip and Lip Grill Lounge , The place bridges the gap between a hangout and a venue with style. It’s well decorated and interesting with great lighting. Did I mention they do Ethiopian and Mediterranean Delicacies? Now you know. On Fridays they have Rhino Band playing live to make sure you end a long week the right way. Pass by.

 Ventanna

Dubbed as Westland’s best kept secret. This cozy uptown lounge is called Ventana and is located at Bidwood Suite offers live Jazz music events covering an array of artists who’ve been invited to play. The bar acoustics are so great, some artists have even considered recording their tracks there. The food there is excellent, needless to say, they were one of the spots during the Nairobi Restaurant week
