The Orphanage | Cape Town Cocktail Emporium

Orphanage takes its unconventional name from its location on Orphan Street, so named as the orphan children of Cape Town used to gather there in the early 1900’s. The low-key brown doorway with a key-shaped spy-hole is an ‘Alice through the looking glass’ entrance into a beautifully detailed, quirky cocktail club which opened rather unusually, with a blessing by the Archdeacon and a drink on the menu is dedicated to the present day Children’s Home that was founded as a result of his predecessors efforts. Harking back to the drinking dens of the early 1900’s; Orphanage offers an extraordinary theatre of cocktail alchemy, an unpretentious, top-quality sharing food menu of which the star is the signature crayfish rolls and truffle chips and a remarkable and rich history from the vibrant Mother City. Expect a laid back vibe, with DJ spinning deep-house with dancing until 2am.
