Events: Harringtons Cocktail Lounge Tapas & Tastings

by Karisa

If you’re looking for a fun night out with fantastic food & wine that’s not going to break the bank (bonus!), look no further than the Tapas & Tastings evenings at Harringtons Cocktail Lounge.

I really love this photo. It sets the scene perfectly. This was our first “date night” in easily over a year and it felt really good to be out & about…

Now let’s get down to the details: For only R190 pp you get starters, a main & petit fours plus a full wine tasting & a glass of your favourite wine of the night.

When? Every Wednesday evening
Where? 61 Harrington Street
Wine deets? The wine partner changes every month & this month they’ve partnered with Beyerskloof Wines. You’ll get to taste the following wines from their range: Pinotage Rose, Chenin Blanc Pinotage, Pinotage, Cab Merlot & their Synergy Cape Blend.

Say hello to the lovely Christiaan from Beyerskloof’s Wines.

On the menu? 2 x snacks as starters, a choice of 3 main options (one meaty, one vegetarian & a fish option), and then petit fours for dessert. Here’s a quick look to tempt those taste buds:

Starters: Panko crusted chevin with chili tomato sauce & Arancini with a whipped feta dip. This paired very nicely with the Beyerskloof Pinotage Rosé.
For mains I chose the flame grilled ribeye and it did not disappoint. It’s served with a truffle mashed potato, sauteed vegetables, mushrooms & blistered cherry tomatoes.
Petit Fours on the night was a mini cheesecake & a mini chocolate brownie. Both delicious.

This outing was gifted, but I would 100% self-fund another one. It’s crazy good value & a really enjoyable night out. ❤️

Not keen on doing the full meal option? Then you can join for the wine tasting only at R50 pp. And if you want to get there a bit earlier, you can also take advantage of happy hour specials between 4:30pm and 5:30pm & half price tapas between 4pm and 5:30pm.

Bookings for the Tapas & Tastings sessions is recommended to avoid disappointment. To book your spot email them on or give them a call on 078 916 7903.

Happy wining & dining!
