​Nairobi Cocktail Festival 2019: The Secret Garden Edition is here!

Nairobi’s largest celebration of cocktail culture is back this holiday period with the 2nd edition of the Nairobi Cocktail Festival kicking off on the 29th of November to the 1st of December at Dari Restaurant in Karen.

Dari is known for their lavishly green grounds famous for weddings and events and we are told the venue will be transformed to look even better for #NCF2019.

This year’s cocktail celebration organized by EatOut and Baraka Events will also be bigger, better and with more than 40 exciting and fun cocktail experiences and bars from the likes of Diageo (World Class Kenya), Pernod Ricard Kenya, Jack Daniels Kenya to name a few. I guess this is why they needed a bigger venue!!!

Eatout and Baraka events recently hosted an intimate event at the Eatout offices where we got to sample some cocktails and they were divine; classified under sweet or spicy- there was something for everyone!



What to expect


When we say it’s time to drink till your last sip, we mean it. There will be 40 cocktails to sample from the best mixologists in Nairobi. These savoury cocktails will be paired with delicious gourmet appetizers and bitings. Music is a key ingredient so expect non-stop electrifying music from 2 DJs at two decks.
