Playwright Nicholas Spagnoletti and software engineer Edward van Kuik have created this elegant establishment to provide Cape Town with a unique new space for conversation and creativity.
Upstairs there is a fully equipped theatre for intimate live performances: come watch comedy, drama, and more. It’s like a little festival venue all year round. Booking essential – see Theatre for details.
About the bar
Alexander Bar attracts a mixed crowd of interesting locals young and old as well as a smattering of tourists from the neighbouring hotels. The bar is filled with old-world charm and is engineered to get people talking. The background music ranges from jazz and world music on quieter nights, to funky lounge, soul and jazzy disco on busy nights. The furnishings are warm and inviting.
