    Two very cool neighbourhood bars: SurfaRosa and Dust & Dynamite

Two very cool neighbourhood bars: SurfaRosa and Dust & Dynamite

Last week… after a rather disappointing meal… at a restaurant where they serve no wine (or even allow wine on the premises *cries softly into glass of Grapetizer*)… my friend Dax and I decided to venture out for some post-dinner drinks.

We ended up at two cool spots that deserve a notable mention each:  The […]

    Harringtons (on Harrington Street) gives a fresh new look & feel to the old Assembly space

Harringtons (on Harrington Street) gives a fresh new look & feel to the old Assembly space

So the old Assembly space in Harrington Street has been given a new lease on life thanks to a collaboration between surf legends, Twiggy Baker and Jordy Smith, Guy Wood (who opened one of Durban’s Longest Running café Bars – Bean Bag Bohemia) and restaurateur Reg Macdonald (you’ll know Reg from Aces ‘n Spades, […]

HQ launches new World Class Cocktail Menu

Now partying on a school night is never advisable (especially in your 30s when hangovers last for approximately a week), but when the offer is to try a selection of brand new cocktails, how could a girl say no to that?  You don’t, you simply don’t…

This is how I ended up at HQ for […]

New kid on the block: The 41 Restaurant & Bar

I recently attended the launch of a new restaurant & bar on the Camps Bay strip called The 41.  Making it just in time for the summer season, The 41, promises to be a spot that will offer a little something to both daytime beach-goers and nighttime diners and party folks.

The brainchild of two […]

Cafe Roux opens in Shortmarket Street

Noordhoek’s Cafe Roux has been a much-loved spot for live music, comfort food & soaking up the sunshine since its opening back in 2006.  But for us city dwellers, there’s some good news, because now the CBD also has its very own Cafe Roux in Shortmarket Street.

I popped my head in for their grand […]

New concept bar, The Station, opens in Bree St

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 […]

I do a bit of bar hopping in Bree Street

As part of my continued Bree St exploration I recently checked out 3 cool new drinking holes…

The 1st is Arcade (152 Bree St), which calls itself a “resto-bar”.  So basically they’re a bar which also serves food.

On the drinks side, they have a selection of cocktails, wines, beers & ciders.  On the food side they […]

I check out new cocktail spot – Outrage Of Modesty

So there’s a new uber hipster cocktail spot in town.  It’s called Outrage of Modesty (or “OoM”  which I don’t think they realised actually means “uncle” in Afrikaans – but that’s how I pronounce it now 😉 )

I went to check it out about a week before Christmas last year and it was quite […]

    My last big night out for 2015 with MCQP & time for a little break

My last big night out for 2015 with MCQP & time for a little break

This past weekend was an interesting one.  I spent my Friday night doing this:

But why?  Prep for my MCQP Candyland outfit of course!  How did it all turn out?  Well I must say I was pretty chuffed with the final result.   The candied bras did suffer some wear & tear as the evening […]

    Satisfy all your sugar cravings at this year’s MCQP Candyland

Satisfy all your sugar cravings at this year’s MCQP Candyland

MCQP is the one party I never miss…  To me, it really is the party of the year.  I mean you get to dress up, the crowd is always fun, and they go all out on the venue, decor and DJ lineup.

This year I’m extra excited though, because I freakin’ love the theme.  What […]
