Gallery gong!
You might want to know that Sankara’s bar, The Gallery, has been awarded – for the third time – the distinguished Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. It was the first establishment in East Africa to have been awarded the title. | Tel: 0703028000

Club Hypnotica
Deejay Sanju and Aisha – store those names because you will never forget them after you nip into this club in Westlands’ Woodvale Grove. Aisha is touted as the first female deejay in Westlands. I disagree, but what the hell? They play great music. On Thursdays there is a band. The place lights up. Go after 11pm. Go if you want to dance, or if you like to watch people dance. | Tel: 0706223460 | 0731535948
Kenyan newspapers are full of news. Bad news. Bickering politicians. Corruption. Graft. Deaths. You don’t have to put your soul through that daily. You can sometimes get the pulse of a nation by looking at Gado’s cartoons, the most syndicated political cartoonist in East and Central Africa.
