This smart in-and-outdoor space on Bree Street is an institution of sorts, featuring craft beers (&Union brew their own) and charcuterie aplenty. Local live bands play on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

Power and Glory

At night, this coffee and brunch spot morphs into one of the city’s coolest and liveliest bars. DJs spin ’80s music, there’s a great artisanal food menu, and local microbrews are on sale for beer aficionados.

Orphanage Cocktail Emporium

This Capetonian speakeasy has a cocktail list as long as the line at the door. Always slammed with a cool, young crowd, the ’20s flapper vibe fits perfectly with the turn-of the-century building.
