the drinkery

A Quirky secret BAR in a funky gallery, previously a slave prison (1771) of Heritage Square Cape Town. Love that chair you're sitting on? You can buy it and take it home...
(all items are for sale)

The Drinkery is a Prohibition Era Speakeasy, where the emphasis is on the secret nature of the bar in a slightly louche setting.

Walk into a sleek, mirrored, eclectic gallery ambiance with funky art and seductive lighting...


Indulgently grab your guilty pleasure whether bespoke wines, gins, mccs, or any other tipple and unwind

in the cosy, candle lit interior... or step onto the verandah and lose yourself in fine antiques, squishy cushion comfort.


No fuss, no frills, no hurry.

No need for an occasion: pause here for a leisurely nip of your favourite artisanal gin before heading home or

simply stay for hours. Nibbles on request...

Have an occasion? Why not book this venue for your next fun outing. 










Eye candy? The funky selection of walls come alive with local and international art, photography, mixed media, and sculpture while the floors groan under the weight of fine and unique collectibles and objets.

Everything is yours to purchase of course !!
