The Junction Overview
The Junction is a social hub for many Nairobi locals and ex-pats. It’s also a good place for tourists see quality, chic, Kenyan made designer goods rather than the imported goods found in many of the other shopping malls. By the food court, there's an area with specialist sports shops including a small but well equipped golfing shop and several other sports wear retailers.
The mall isn’t huge, but as you enter, there is a clutch of arty shops and boutique outlets such as Kazuri Beads, Kitengela Glass, Anabel Thom designer leather goods and several other craft outlets for fine jewellery, interior design and beaded treasures! The centre also has a two-screen cinema, a small food court, the Mediterraneo restaurant, Java House, Dormans and a large Nakumat.
