    Address: Shop 153, Breakwater Boulevard, Cape Town

    Belthazar is a bistro-style​ steakhouse restaurant and wine bar located at the Waterfront in Cape Town's harbour. It is a tourist spot due to its location, but what’s particularly great about this space is the amount of South African wines available by the glass, about 250 of them. This is a great spot for sampling, whilst enjoying the pulse of a busy seafront.

  3. Phone: +27 21 422 0128

    Address: 92 Bree Street, Cape Town City Centre, Cape Town

    Chefs Warehouse Canteen & Wine Bar is a casual eatery that serves tapas dishes to share in a set menu. No bookings allowed, you just drop in and hope for the best. If the place is full, as it often is, you can simply park yourself in the small wine bar and enjoy a glass of wine or two whilst waiting for a table to open up. The venue is centrally located on Bree Street and forms part of Heritage Square, a building block that is home to the oldest, fruit-bearing and wine-producing​ vine in South Africa, planted around the 1770’s.

  4. Phone: +27 87 898 2206

    Address: 103 Bree Street, CBD, Cape Town

    Frogitt & Vonkel Wine Bar is located in Bree Street in Cape Town’s Central Business District, on the second floor of an 18th-century​ stable that dates back to the Dutch rule at a time when a mere 15,000 people lived in Cape Town and the black-maned cape lion was still around. The venue itself has a comfy pub-feel with dark green leather chairs and couches, dark wooden tables and an inviting pool table.

  5. Phone: +27 21 422 0800

    Address: 72 Wale Street, Cape Town City Centre, Cape Town

    Openwine is a morph between a wine bar and a tasting room centrally located in Cape Town on Wale Street, about a corks' throw from the buzzle and energy of Bree Street. The spot is personified by its owners, a French and Italian couple (charismatic overload) that emigrated to the Cape and now forms an established part of the local wine fauna. The venue is comfortable and simple with several small private rooms and seating areas.

  6. Address: 11D Kloof Nek Road, Gardens, Cape Town

    Publik Wine Bar is located on a busy corner of the famous Kloof Nek Road leading up towards Table Mountain. It’s a small and trendy hole-in-the-wall wine bar with a raw and rustic interior that still feels warm and inviting with wax candles scattered over wooden tables. Most of the seating is at the bar counter and the environment tends to get crowded and naturally lend itself towards socialising and late nights.
