The Gin Bar was an absolute treat to stumble upon. The court yard setting creates such an atmosphere and to top it off the beautifully crafted gin & tonics. We were in the mood from the moment we sat down, we tried all their special...More

Amazing space for sipping the best Gin cocktails in Cape Town. The little courtyard is beautiful. Try go before 17h30 when the office workers descend on the bar. Great atmosphere.

This is a great place for a few drinks with your mates, is not your normal bar. Is a trendy spot with a great variety of gin cocktails. Worth trying this one out.

We visited twice whilst in CT. A great find, that had been recommended by a friend before our trip, but glad we tried it The recommended gins are local and tasted great. The ambience is great due to the quirky nature of it's location
