  • My wife found these reasonable priced tickets for a pre Valentine celebration play. It was a very casual evening. It was not well attended but we really had a good time. Will recommend for a budget...  more »
  • Wonderful evening in a beautiful bar, easily found in a convenient location. Inspirational music and friendly staff to top it off! 3rd time here and we've only been in Cape Town for 4 nights so far...  more »
  • It was our last night in Cape Town and after we were harassed for 2 nights while walking, we didn't want to venture too far from our hotel. We opted to check out this bar close to our hotel and it...  more »

  • This is a special haven for those who appreciate warm jazzy vibes, dim lighting and a cozy atmosphere. I feel like I'm in a good friend's home rather than a restaurant. Their alcohol menu is quite vast but the food is limited to light snacks and boards, with one hot meal of the day. The food I've tried is simple yet delicious, and the staff are warm and pleasant. I intend on being a regular guest.
  • Friendly bar service, a fab buzzing outside area, though it could be a tad bigger but security person is friendly enough, and an adequate intimate theatre space upstairs where I watched a funny & relative play- Five Women Wearing The Same Dress. Will definitely revisit when I'm back in The Cape.
  • Love love love everything about this place! Decor and food was amazing. Such a fun venue to go watch a show!
  • Delightful venue built around the lost art of conversation. Rotary dial telephones connect you to the bar, to other tables, to random strangers. It's easy to hear each other. Intimate theatre upstairs, and the best cheese platter in town downstairs. Not just a bar. Highly recommended
  • Lovely clientele whenever I'm there. Always a great place to build wonderful memories. Love the performances there too. Great ambience always.
