    Jahazi Coffee House

    With lashings of sexy Mombasa style, this lounge cafe is the perfect spot to chill out in cushion-strewn, arty surrounds. Did we mention that it has great coffee? The Swahili pot, if you're after something different, turns the grind into a ritual. You won't want to leave.

    Florida Club

    We know why this place was named after the Disney state. Like a theme park for grown-ups, there's all sorts to get into here: an outdoor pool, a 'crazy' blue bar, fluorescent palm trees, small casino, Vegas-style floor shows and DJ sets from 7pm.

  • Nightlife in Mombasa


    Of all the gin joints, in all the towns…walking into this one isn't the worst thing you could do. Classy but still cheeky, Casablanca is wildly popular. And yes, it's brimming with ladies of negotiable affection, but rumour has it that the late owner treated his resident girls so well, 300 of them turned up at his funeral.

  • Nightlife in Diani Beach


    The only nightclub in Diani not attached to a hotel is Shakatak. It’s quite hilariously seedy, but can be fun once you know what to expect. Like most big Kenyan clubs, food is served at all hours.
