This stylish, minimal-looking bar also functions as a restaurant serving delicious European and Asian food – great news for those looking to get a good meal after-hours. Admire the mismatched furniture and beautiful blue ceiling as you sip your complimentary gazpacho appetizer. As you also get free carafes of tap water and a bread basket (such luxury!), there’s no real need to order more than a main course. The beef stroganoff with mash/buckwheat (R280) is herby and tasty, while the falafel burger (R240) is made moist and delicious with chunky tomato sauce and cheese and also comes with wedges, salad and a ginger-mayonnaise dip.
Come for dinner and stay for a cocktail as the relaxed atmosphere continues late into the night (all cocktails R250).
