The Champagne Bar (Nairobi)
It's all about the bubbly at this posh place on the seventh floor of the Sankara design hotel in Westlands, a intimate space with sofa seating around low tables and a few stools along a gorgeous palm wood bar hand-carved by local artist and furniture maestro Marc van Rampelberg.
Order a bottle of Krug or Taittinger and drink your bubbly straight up.
Or ask the resident mixologists for one of his latest takes on the champagne cocktail.
The bar hosts a Champagne Ritual every night at six.
Those who want to continue quaffing after the 1 p.m. closing time can step up to the rooftop Sarabi Pool Bar, which stays open another hour.
