Love the new JK's great spot to have a beer in the evening and the food is not bad either. I would recommend the beef skewers can't remember what they call them on the menu but they tasted great.. all in all a Fantastic experience

It is a comfy sports bar with large screens ideal for watching popular sports in a comfy bar environment. It attracts a decent crowd.

If you're not into sophistication and all you need is friends to have a good time,then this is the bar for you. There is nothing special about this sports bar apart from the fact that you can watch almost any type of sport here...it is a sports bar after all. It's both indoors and outdoors, so there's room for smokers... More

Just Kicking is Now Closed. It was razed to the ground last month. Just Kicking was the first true Sports Bar in Kampala. Am sure many have happy memories to share. So, I give it an Excellent rating, not based on recent form, but in memory of its place in Kampala social and sporting fans lives. Adios.

Not that that's unique in Kampala, but it definitely had an unpretentious feel and prices aren't bad for being next to Acacia mall. Sometimes the music is a bit loud a bit early

Best pizza in the city. Spicy meats, not too soggy or hard. Loads of TVs. Best place to watch a match in KLA

Here they call me Bonobo, every time I am in Kampala I have to stop here for a beer or two. We are always three guys together here, Amos, Arturo and myself, .

Has been here for more than 20 years that I know, the only thing that changes, new patrons, except for the diehard! Charlie one of the original owners is seen there often, and the regulars in their own groups, this would be close to a Local for some!

This is a good spot to catch up on sports. From F1 to soccer to Rugby. Patrons enjoy along with cold drinks both local and imported. The food is very good. The fact that the crowds are big is a positive point for JK as it's fondly called due to the many watering holes at kisementi. It's a place I... More
