The Hattons Lounge

Karen Blixen Group’s CEO Mr. Ronald Mutie is absolutely delighted to announce the opening of the Hattons Lounge, originally known us The Blixen Pool Bar & Restaurant at the Karen Blixen Coffee Garden & Cottages in Nairobi.

Located along Karen Road, the exclusive Hattons Lounge is set in what used to be Karen Blixen’s old coffee farm estate. It is about 20 miles from downtown Nairobi and about half a mile from the Karen Golf and Country Club. Centrally and conveniently located, it is a short walk from the Karen Blixen Museum, Kazuri Bead Factory and an easy 10 minutes’ drive to the popular David Sheldrick Elephant & Rhino Orphanage as well as the Giraffe Centre. Just 10 minutes away, it is also well-placed for game drives at Nairobi National Park where one can spot the big game with the city skyline in the background. The Southern bypass makes Wilson Airport, which is used for all safari flights in Kenya, a quick 20 minutes’ drive. The bypass combined with the new Express Way on Mombasa Rd makes transfer to/from Jomo Kenyatta Airport a breeze.

Huge mature trees such as Jacaranda, Croton, Bottle Brush, Candelabra Cactus and over 200 species of blooming flowers surround one of the oldest gardens in Kenya. Diners have a choice of different areas for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is the elegant and stylishly furnished indoor restaurant, cozy and rustic bar with a huge fire place, wall-to-wall windows and expansive sky-lights, an adjacent pergola and garden right next to the beautiful heated pool. In-house guests can also enjoy room service.

The bar & restaurant’s capacity is 70 pax which can be extended to the pergola and gardens to stretch to 100. We highly advise diners to reserve a table for efficient service delivery.

The menu with the extensive kids’ options offers an eclectic selection of meat and seafood dishes, vegetarian as well as burgers and pizzas. Why not catch up over a cuppa as it is always Coffee-O’clock at the Blixen Pool Bar & Restaurant!

Karibu and we look forward to serving you soon!
