Over 70 gins unique to South Africa


The myriad indigenous botanicals found in South Africa have inspired a explosion in distillers producing local gin. With over 70 on our menu, you are guaranteed to experience new and interesting flavours, unique to South Africa. 


The Gin Bar is one of the country's only true speak-easy's, hidden in a secret mediterranean-style courtyard,

and entered through Honest Chocolate Cafe


The Secret Courtyard

Our charming, cozy courtyard is filled with history and character, and is reminiscent of something you would find in Italy, Spain or Greece.


The courtyard is sheltered from the South Easter in summer,  and at night when the string lights come on,  you wont find anything more romantic in the city.

Please note: Seating in the courtyard is on a first come, first serve basis - unfortunately no reservations.

Gin Tastings

Join us for a delicious and educational gin tasting consisting of 3 local and distinct gins, with a premium tonic and their paired garnishes.  

Led by friendly and knowledgeable staff, the gin tastings are for a minimum of

4 people and need to be reserved in advance.


Tasting times: 3pm and 5pm, Thursday - Saturday.

Cost: R175 per person


We'd love to hear from you :)
