a creative hub in the heart of Nairobi

We provide a canvas on which Nairobi’s leading event organisers paint their creative visions. Some of our events are organised and hosted by our team at the Alchemist, but others are run by outside events organisers. We offer many free events, including our regular Tuesday night Film Night, Friday NIght Hip Hop and Wednesday Open Mic.
