My top 3 bars to have drinks after work during the Cape Town winter

Odyssey gastropub
199 Bree St, Cape Town
021 422 4084

They often offer wine tastings as you arrive which is always welcoming and interesting.

The Twankey Bar
On the corner of Wale & Adderley Streets.
021 819 2000

The bar is next to the Taj Hotel in the old Temple Chambers of the former BOE Building. You receive a large bowl of popcorn with your drinks. Free Wi-Fi available.

Alexander Bar
76 Strand St  Cape Town
021 300 1088

There is a small theatre upstairs. In winter they offer a special of R50 for something simple e.g  pasta with chicken or curry. The func­tion­ing antique rotary dial tele­phone sys­tem encour­ages you to chat to peo­ple all over the bar.
