“IT'S not all about the bass, Mr band player”

Visited this eclectic aviation styled bar and restaurant while on conference at the Birchwood. Great collection of aviation memorabilia, including the whole nose cone of a Jumbo 747 and all the pilot's cabin complete!

Great service from the staff and it's a team fun place for after conference relaxation, EXCEPT there is a resident band, 2 blokes staight out of the 80's or even the 70's garage party scene. Not that musical but they try hard and and it's very nostalgic. On the whole we loved them, but their bass is turned up so high your chest vibrates and their music is all but inaudible. We sent a couple of notes up with requests and telling them their bass was too loud, they played our requests but ignored our advice. Pity, as it quite spoilt our evening.

Adjacent to Birchwood and Silverbirch Hotels, this is a unique and quite surprising aviation bar. On one of the nights I visited there was a very good karaoke!

The food was not too bad more like a pub meal.
A bit pricey but you can at least eat the food.
Had an enjoyable evening.

This place is close to the airport and situated in Boksberg, near the Birchwood hotel. The athmosphere is fantastic and people are always interested in meeting new people into aviation. A great choice of drinks and good food at competitive prices. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area , if only to see the cocpot section of B.747-244 ZS-SAL which is inside the building fof all to see.

The bar has a friendly atmosphere, it is good for just relaxing after a long day at the office. The interior of the bar, especially the roof is a sight to behold, parts of the aircraft is mounted on the roof, it also provides patrons an interesting visual experience with a wide range of flying memorabilia, photographs, and aircraft models. You can sit outside and watch aircrafts land which is an amazing experience. The Wifi is great and they have a live band that performs for the patrons. It has an original 747 cockpit installed in the pub which makes it very unique.
