A Hotel Bar With A Difference

Housed on the corner of Wale and Adderley Streets in Cape Town, The Twankey Bar is in indeed a rare find in the historic part of the city.  The bar’s update is strongly influenced by prohibition America, where sipping cocktails was a luxury and innovation was used to make the most of the ingredients on offer.

The Twankey Bar, which is part of the luxurious Taj Cape Town hotel, offers a decadent, crafted cocktail menu. Our master Mixologists use intriguing cocktail-making methods from wood-chip smoking and blazing to teapot brewing, every ingredient is freshly made on the premises: every infusion, syrup and garnish is made from scratch.

The food is an eclectic mix of tapas-styled dishes. It features refined versions of Indian street snacks as well as local and international influences.

The Twankey Bar also serves the finest Cape wines and sparkling wines and a selection of locally-produced craft beers.
