Welcome to The Marabi Club where superb food and drink blend together with the best in live jazz performances. Inspired by the penny-whistle Marabi clubs of the 1920's which were formed in the wake of one of the world’s richest gold rushes, in Johannesburg. It was a lifestyle prompted by the need to escape the hardships of the working week and was defined by illegal shebeens, where fierce talk of politics was accompanied by the equally disruptive soundtrack of jazz. Today The Marabi Club is tucked into the basement of...

Epicure is the restaurant name that is on everyone’s lips, and it’s no secret as to why. The Belgian-Burundian Chef has made a name for himself in the restaurant industry, and we were excited to pay him a visit.

Épicure in itself is an adventure from...

Calexico has to be hands down one of our fave chillaxing spots, and the fact that are so well known for their tasty nachos, sticky ribs and double double burgers, not to mention signature cocktails and craft beers, this is foodie heaven for sure. We also love their cool and eclectic music selection, and the outdoor seating area is perfect for after work drinks or chilled lunches with friends.

If you are heading down to the Cape soon, and are going to be in the Durbanville area, then may we suggest a stop in at the beautiful Meerendal Estate.

There are two restaurants on the estate, The Crown Restaurant and Carlucci's - the latter is the one that fills up fast so that come lunchtime,...
