Top 7 Trendy Restaurants in Nairobi

When it comes to finding the perfect restaurant where to wine and dine, it’s equally become important in 2019 that it not only has exceptional food and drinks but also a vibrant and lively atmosphere/ design/ decor that captures your attention from the very minute you walk into the outlet. Today, many restaurant owners are finally getting the drift that a good interior design/ outlook can do as much for a restaurant as good food, drinks and service can. Patrons want to wine and dine with a lovely decor all around them. Look around, as much as you will find patrons taking pictures of the food, you will also find an equal amount of pictures taken, focusing on the surrounding.

Now with the advent of Instagram (social media in general) that is ever present in our daily lives 24/7, where we see dreamy spaces all the time, it’s important to create a curated space that will make a lasting impression when a patron visits your establishment. The benefits of Instagram for restaurants has not only impacted food presentation but restaurant design too. From layout to lighting to colors to seating; they all influence your clients’ mood and experience. Social media Influencers are always on the look out for venues to shoot their content and restaurants have really come in handy. You will see patrons clicking away (camera) at various locations of the restaurant.
