We are very excited to share with you that cafe Roux is opening in Cape Town. Situated in the prime location of Shortmarket Street, in the heart of the city. From the end of November, we will be staging the best South African artists, up close & personal, in our unique & intimate 100-seater setting.
The newly renovated space can be described as eclectic cool meets urban chic with a tiered seating plan of comfortable booth seating on raised platforms, leather bar stools and bench seating offering patrons the best viewing options.
As with Noordhoek, the food offering in Cape Town is simple and unpretentious. The menu will change regularly showcasing a select offering of handmade wood-fired pizzas with fresh seasonal toppings. Think ripe fig and Gorgonzola in autumn; heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil and grilled aubergine in summer. Delicious vegan and gluten-free options will be available. For the not so hungry, cheese-and-charcuterie boards will also be on offer with marinated olives, garden greens and preserves. Dessert is proudly Noordhoek with Kristen’s Kick Ass Ice Cream served in a sugar cone or cup. And of course the coffee will be from the Village Roast.
What some of the artists had to say about the new venue in Cape Town:
“café Roux is one of the best venues in SA with brilliant sound and super-interactive audiences. It always makes for a night to remember. So personally, I could not be happier for café Roux to spread its wings into Cape Town. Looking forward to playing there in December.” – Arno Carstens
“I’m so excited for this next chapter in café Roux history. The Noordhoek venue will forever be etched in to South African music history, and I’m pretty sure this new venue will build on that tradition.” Majozi
“It`s not easy creating a household name in a world filled of so many choices. café Roux however are on a different level and have managed to achieve this with their fantastic music evenings featuring the best in SA music as well as incredible food that never disappoints!” Craig Hinds – Watershed
