Hero Bar and Restaurant, which is part of the Tribe Hotels Group, has been named among the top 100 bars in the world.
The Westlands-based entertainment joint managed to land at 70th spot in the extended list for the World’s 50 Best Bars at an awards ceremony held in London, the UK last week.
It is the first Kenyan bar to make it to the list and one of the only two African drinking joints in this year’s ranking.
The other one was South Africa’s Cause Effect Cocktail Kitchen at position 75.
“Ranking among the top 100 bars in the world is a testament to the skill and talent of our team; we hope to continue pushing the boundaries of Kenya’s culinary industry through our bars and restaurants,” said Richard Barrow, the Food and Beverage General Manager for the Tribe Hotels Group. “The recognition of Hero Restaurant and Bar by The World’s 50 Best Bars is celebrated as a first for Kenya.”
