Proof of Life

Sunday's Presidential address held no good news for anybody. While there's no doubt that the re-imposed ban on the sale of alcohol has set us back in terms of reopening with a full bar offering, it has highlighted just how much we have been relying on the government to lead us through these uncertain times. We've been following the rules they laid out, hoping that they had our industry's interests in mind but it seem they do/have not. As such, it's time for us to move forward and, in the absence of any direction or good news from our fearless leaders, we have to forge our own path into a brave new world.


With that, we give you 'Proof of Life'...


Starting on Wednesday, 29 July we'll be opening once a week. The format is simple: We'll be serving dinner (check out our new menu) paired with an experience giving you the opportunity to get out in a safe, controlled environment for a few hours a week.


Wednesday 29 July: Dinner and an ironic wine tasting


Our Menu will be available for an early dinner, followed by a tasting of the 'finest' alcohol-free wines we can get our hands on. Who knows, maybe we'll find something worth drinking at home!


Wednesday 5 August: Dinner and Quiz Night


Come in for a pizza and a special Quiz Night: Lockdown Edition! 12 Teams of two will compete for the top honours as we avoid the complete and utter boredom of spending yet another evening in front of the TV.


Each night is limited to only 12 pairs of tickets to ensure adequate distancing between guests. No alcohol will be served or consumed on the premises but we will a selection of non-alcoholic beers, cider and cocktails available.


Bookings are essential and a booking fee of R200/pair (this covers the entertainment) is payable to secure your seats.


Hand sanitiser will be provided and our staff will be following strict health and safety and cleaning protocols to ensure the very highest level of cleanliness. Our menus are digital and we have no-touch payment options available. Screening of guests temperatures will be done on arrival and we will require your contact details to ensure contact tracing information is captured.


Due to the government-imposed curfew which starts at 21h00, we'll be open from 18h00 until 20h30 at which time we will need to close to ensure we all get home on time.


More info about future evenings to follow shortly.
