Where to Hold a Teen Birthday in Nairobi
As COVID-19 restrictions ease and the country slowly opens up, teens bogged down with cabin fever are itching to get out. If you’ve seen the hashtag #reparty on Instagram and wondered what it was about, we got the scoop. Teens and young adults are “re-celebrating” birthdays that were ruined by pandemic restrictions.
They’re making up for the “lackluster” cake only parties they had at home and doing it big; friends, activities…the works.
If you’re comfortable with letting your teens venture out, there are some pretty cool spaces
around Nairobi to check out.
For Ksh 1000 per kid, teens can enjoy an hour of ice skating at Panari Hotel. There are helpful supervisors at the rink for those new to skating and the facility can arrange for an all out ice rink party with music, snacks and a photographer.
The Ballpoint Social Club at the Village Market offers fun family activities like ping pong, darts, a ton of board games and easy dining in the presence of an awesome DJ.
Eat and play (responsibly) on Wednesday to Sunday from 11am to 7pm. For reservations call 0746 723 807
If your teens and their friends love the great outdoors, a birthday celebration at the Karura forest is a great idea. They can visit Karura Forest and hire sturdy multi-speed trail bikes to use on designated forest trails. For Ksh 500 per teen, they’ll enjoy two hours of trail biking.
Nothing beats the experience of watching our fave flicks on the big screen. Cinemas in Kenya are opening up. Treat your teens to some movie tickets from KenyaBuzz.
PlayLand Amusement Park at NextGen Mall-Mombasa Road has an arcade, rides and bowling. Their nyama choma restaurant is also operational and they have a resident DJ. Call 0736 549284 for inquiries.
