We take birthdays very seriously and we believe that you should too! 

If you’re looking to treat yo’self to the drink of all drinks on your special day, then our sexy birthday box cocktail is exactly what you need. It has a delicious spring punch inside, topped off with MCC and illuminated by the sparklers that surround it. 

The best part is that it is served in an oversized gift box ensuring that heads turn and that you are the centre of all attention. It’s one of a kind, just like you.

There is only limited free street parking so we’ve got a drop off outside our doors for those smart enough not to drive.

However, we also have a large secure paid parking lot which can be found to the back of our venue on the corner of Newport Road & Bolton Road. Prices from R7 per hour to cover the additional security gaurds and CCTV.

We are a restaurant with a bar so children are welcome with parents (although please note we don’t have a children menu or high chairs!). As day turns to night we do become very busy so we’d advise keeping the little ones at home during the night. Please note, only persons over 18 with ID will be served alcohol. ROAR.

We’re a smart casual kind of place 😉

Our booking policy is simple; you can book or just rock up as we also run a waiting list on the day.

The waiting list is run at the front door by our hosts who will take down your details as you arrive and while you have a drink at the bar, we get your table ready and come get you asap.  If you hate waiting or are a larger group, we’d suggest booking in advance.

If you are booking for a larger party or a private event we may ask or a deposit or a set menu in order to confirm the booking. Not always, but sometimes.

Yes! Every Friday and Saturday evening we have the very best DJs.

We open daily from 12pm – 12am serving food and drinks all the way through.  We also stay open a little later on Thursday, Friday & Saturday.

Yes, we only close twice a year –

  1. Christmas Day (so our staff can be with their families) ,and
  2. New Years Day (because we all need a duvet day after that big night!)
