Directions to Twankey Bar
The Twankey Bar, at the Taj Hotel Cape Town, is a rare find; a place where flowing champagne, the freshest seafood, cold Guiness on tap, elegant décor and sublime jazz tell a glamorous story. The interior, all plush décor and soulful jazz, distinguishes it from the lively city bustle that lies street-side of the glass.
When the Board of Executors decided to erect a statue to reflect their benevolence they chose the corner of Adderley and Wale Streets, knowing it was an exceptional location.
Today the restored statue still dominates the busy corner. She’s also given her name, or at least the moniker that Capetonians cheekily bestowed on her nearly 100 years ago, to the champagne and seafood bar below her.
The Twankey celebrates this historic irreverence. A relaxed, sophisticated meeting place, it serves hot and cold seafood in tapas portions from an open kitchen. The food is fresh, light and healthy.
The wine list includes an interesting selection of Cape wines and signature cocktails and at the bar there’s draught Guinness on tap. The Twankey also incorporates a coffee bar and will regularly feature live evening entertainment.
