For those looking for a unique dining and entertainment experience in Nairobi, look no further than The Bao Box. Since opening its doors in December 2017, this board game café has been bringing together diverse groups of people over board games, comedy shows, quiz nights, and even Dirty Bingo. But now, with a focus on the future, The Bao Box has taken a technological twist on the traditional gaming experience.
While The Bao Box still stays true to its original ethos and Kenyan heritage, the new generation of gaming has taken a sports twist with a technological twist. The café has implemented RFIDs and a mobile app to make it easier for customers to reserve tables, order food and drinks, and book games. With this digitized operation, customers can spend more time enjoying their food and games rather than waiting in lines or on the phone.
Speaking of food, The Bao Box’s menu is full of delicious options that cater to different dietary requirements. From vegan to gluten-free, there is something for everyone. But the star of the menu is undoubtedly the bao – a Chinese steamed bun filled with a variety of fillings. The menu offers both traditional and fusion baos, such as the classic pork belly bao or the Kenyan-inspired goat curry bao.
In addition to the delicious food and interactive games, The Bao Box hosts a variety of events to keep things exciting. Whether it’s a board game tournament or a live music performance, there’s always something going on at The Bao Box.
Located on General Mathenge Drive in Westlands, The Bao Box is open seven days a week, with varying opening hours throughout the week. So next time you’re looking for a fun and unique dining experience in Nairobi, head to The Bao Box and get ready to bond with friends and family over food and games.
