Nairobi has this unique feeling and atmosphere, particularly on a Friday. In the morning, you’ll see people’s faces looking so bright – it’s like they are trying to signal each other; we made it! In the afternoon, it’s busy with people trying to usher in the evening as they’re finishing on their daily routines. In the evening, the vibe is melodic, and slowly the night is welcomed. From the window of your office, you can hear the temperatures rising and voices overlapping signaling that the night has just begun. On a Friday in Nairobi, you’ll notice many people moving in pairs stumbling over one another, not exactly rushing somewhere but just trying to keep up with the pace. If you’re with your best friend, these are some of the things you can do and enjoy in Nairobi.
Good coffee is as good as sharing good moments. It hits you hard, leaving you with the feeling of wanting more and more. So set that Friday date with your best friend, agree on the spot, and go try new coffee. In addition, since coffee has some good magic, be ready to ‘dunda’ and enjoy the night.
Here are a few places you can visit;
Kaldis Coffee House, Kimathi St.
Nairobi Java House, ABC Pl., Waiyaki Way
Artcaffé, Westgate Mall, Mwanzi Rd

A house party can be doable with even two people. All you need is to create the right atmosphere. This is the ultimate ideal plan for a Friday night in case you and your best friend kinda feel reluctant to do an outdoor activity. House party is an ideal session to relax, chill out and play a lot of cool games with your friend. Since the party is all the two of you, you could shop together or order a few items online, and they get delivered to your place. This is so flexible and saves on a lot of things. Plus, you don’t have to cook! You can order food on; Jumia Food app, Uber Eats, Dial a Delivery app, Yum Deliveries and Glovo.
