Countdown to 2014 in style in the Sunset Bar. The place to be and be seen!

he history of the Africa House building dates back over 150 years. Its original owner was a wealthy slave trader from Oman, who shortly before his death handed the property over to the Sultan of Zanzibar. In 1888 the first English Club of East Africa opened in this former royal residence. The original interiors of the club included a bar, restaurant, library, billiard room and guest rooms. At a later stage a terrace was built, which is the present day's Sunset Bar and a popular meeting place amongst tourist as well as locals.
