Cape Town Social Club

No, don’t expect a braai, or countless variations on the boboti; at Cape Town Social Club the menu features elegant dishes inspired by refined South African cuisine and Cape Town joie de vivre. Dishes with finesse, as you would expect from a chef like Sebastian Erasmus. He has worked in top restaurants such as The Test Kitchen and The Potluck Club in Cape Town and La Rive and The White Room in Amsterdam. Guests can go all out with a full dinner from autumn onwards or order one of the eight smaller dishes to accompany their drink. In the Netherlands we might talk about appetizers, but the association with bitterballen (a Dutch delicacy) does not do credit to the level of Cape Town Social Club. Unless they are homemade Michelin-level bitterballen (a Dutch delicacy) with a South African twist. Because that is what this new hotspot stands for: good food at a high level in a relaxed setting.

Cocktails in the spotlight

Cocktails also get a prominent place. Alexander Heim is responsible for the ins and outs of the front office and uses the experience he gained worldwide for this purpose. From Cape Town to New York and from London to Amsterdam, Alexander worked in the best bars and regularly put together successful cocktail and drink menus. Expect classics, but also cocktails with a twist, as the experienced bartender is not afraid to go off the beaten track in terms of ingredients and flavor combinations. But the rest of the bar menu also consists of standouts: from the best (sparkling) wines to an extensive selection of rum and whisk(e)ys. Those who are members of the Cape Town Members Club are even allowed to order and house their own favorite bottles from Alexander. This loyalty initiative is intended to create an intimate community of regulars who take advantage of various perks, such as discounts, priority reservations and invitations to special nights.

The interior of Cape Town Social Club is intimate and warm, with lots of mood lighting, blue velvet and wooden accents. You come here to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, personal service, excellent food and the best cocktails. See you soon!

Cape Town Social Club is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 17.00. Sign up for the newsletter via the website.
