SPECIALITIES

Known as one of the inner city’s most iconic bars, The Twankey Bar has swanky red leather chairs, marble counter tops, a high decorative ceiling and gigantic chalkboard tempting visitors with all manner of exciting elixirs. Reminiscent of the secret speakeasies of the prohibition era with a distinctive nod to Cape Town’s culture and history, this is the perfect place to pull up a chair and be regaled with the fascinating tales behind the drinks. Award-winning mixologist AJ Snetler mans the marble bar. The bearded barman is known for using unusual mixology methods like wood-chip smoking and teapot brewing to enhance his tipples. His concoctions can be accompanied by a melange of Spice Route-inspired tapas and snacks.
