Graze_Sankara-NairobiGraze opens!
Finally, the long-awaited Graze restaurant at the Sankara Hotel opened its meaty doors to steak lovers. The 44-seat restaurant features signature menu items like aged beef, succulent seafood, classic steakhouse dishes and indulgent desserts. The decor is just right for diners: rich browns, ebony ceilings, indoor fireplaces and some imagery on the walls which I’m yet to figure out. Look beyond and you will see an open kitchen, Josper grill and an outdoor terrace.

Chivas campaign
In collaboration with Kenyan fashion designer Kaveke, Chivas Regal has launched its Kenyan campaign ‘Made for Gentlemen’. Kaveke has created classy bespoke jackets for eight leading Kenyan entrepreneurs. The collection of jackets reflects the passion put into the blending of the world’s original luxury whisky, Chivas.

The luxury African accessories brand Adele Dejak launched the above campaign, inviting everyone to celebrate Africa’s extensive diversity, embrace the African identity and share positive African vibes. This will be through a series of video logs and photographs, starring ten leading personalities who will be the #MyHeartBeatsAfrica campaign ambassadors, giving a unique inside glimpse of why their hearts beat for Africa.

Discovery Sport
Launched a couple of months ago to a large social media fanfare dubbed the #AdventureHero, the Discovery Sport finally landed in Kenya. You probably know the specs by heart by now, but I took it for a three-day spin in Amboseli and Tsavo; it’s a sexy car that turns heads (even of wild animals), but also it’s the kind of car you can take to the village during the rainy season when it’s impassable. It looks good both in town and on safari. •
