On Friday night I attended the opening of a new themed concept bar in Bree St called The Station. This multi-level space has taken over the old “The Nunnery” and is located at the top of Bree St close to Culture Club Cheese & Bacon on Bree.
The interior is modeled around London’s underground, with various “stations” to explore. At first I was nervous that it would be a bit cheesy or poorly executed, but I actually really love what they’ve done with the place. Let me show you around:
They’ve even used the 11 tubes lines and colours from the London Underground as inspiration behind their 11 signature cocktails:
Now interestingly, they’re not only going to be an evening space, in fact their opening hours are as follows:
- Monday: 9am – 5pm
- Tuesday to Saturday: 9am until late
Offering local coffee brand Mischu as well as fresh artisan pasties, it’ll also be a great spot to grab a morning coffee before you jump into your day. They also have FREE Wifi which makes it a good “office away from the office” option.
And then for the hungry, they’ll also be serving a selection of street food like pitas, kebabs, bunny chow sliders & falafels throughout the day & night.
I have a feeling The Station on Bree going to become quite the popular after-work or after-dinner drinks spot in Cape Town this summer. It definitely has that unique factor I think Capetonians are going to love.
They’ll definitely be seeing me again… bustin’ a move or two on that dance floor, that’s for sure… 🙂
