It's off the beaten track and you only hear about it through TripAdvisor or by word of mouth. Exciting Bar!! Good Food, Great Service, Great Wine selection. Best Value for money in Capetown! Don't tell everyone, keep it among close friends!!

We have been regular visitors to the Cape Town Club which occupied these premises for years. To say it is so different in its present form is a massive understatement. We were almost prepared not to like The Stack but how wrong we were. It...More

Description
Frequented by people that you would want to know, the stately Leinster Hall has been brilliantly reimagined and repurposed as The Stack: With an opulent public bar and brasserie downstairs and a unique private members' club upstairs, it's the perfect place to get your swagger on. The fledgling idea of hotelier Nigel Pace and his designer wife, Sarah Ord, this one of a kind establishment is about to make the Kloof Street hood even cooler, if that is even vaguely imaginable. Between them, they have over 25 years of experience making people feel at home so you'd be foolish not to get in on the ground floor, so to speak.
