Located in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD, [spasie] is the city’s first (and only) underground restaurant and private event space bringing top South African chefs and rising stars into our kitchens for two nights each week to create culinary magic. What do we do the other 5 nights? Read on, friend.
From birthday dinners to bachelorette parties, corporate lunches to proposal dinners, [spasie] is the perfect place to host your private function. Our space is a blank canvas that transforms to our client’s needs and our experienced team of event directors is here to guide you.
[spasie] can accommodate around 60 guests for a seated dinner, 150 auditorium style for a guest speaker or movie screening and 120 comfortably for cocktails and canapés but the best thing to do is pop in and see for yourself over a cup of delicious HAAS coffee on the house.
Designed as a culinary playground for South Africa’s top chefs and young, rising stars, we open up our kitchen for two nights only each week and allow these industry leaders to step in and create magic. The result is your chance to feast on what some of this country’s top talent dreams of making outside their normal restaurant kitchens paired perfectly with some of the Western Cape’s top wine farms.
Our open plan kitchen and relaxed, underground ambiance put you in direct contact with the chef as they serve as your culinary guide for the evening and then share a glass of wine with you over dessert.
Every Wednesday, we host an invite-only, underground speakeasy known as #PWW or Pocket Watch Wednesdays. We’ve got gourmet street food from the likes of The Chef’s Bench and Santa Anna’s, the naughtiest card game we know, Cards Against Humanity and a giant Twister Board.
How do you get in? Well, you need to score one of our signature Pocket Watches or know someone in the know, you know.
By far one of our favourite meals of the week is Sunday Brunch. Executive chef Nicolas Charalambous and team have whipped up a traditional New York style Sunday Brunch just steps from the CBD in Bo-Kaap filled with fresh, local and responsibly farmed ingredients and, of course, bottomless bubbles, our marvellous mimosas and unlimited access to our DIY Bloody Mary Bar featuring both bacon and cucumber infused Vodkas.
[spasie] is open for Brunch every Sunday from 11 am until 3 pm. To make a booking, simply email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 021.422.1492.
