Having done research for a nice spot to meet a few people on a sunday night in Cape Town I had high hopes especially having read only positive reviews online. What we were greeted with was a slightly run down interior and a few customers. The staff were surprised by us wanting a cocktail menu for what is supposed to... More

Located just off of trendy Long Street, I would call this a hidden gem! This bar/ lounge is for those that like it cosy. The manager Kenneth did his very best to accommodate us by organizing platters from the sister restaurant Mojito, on a Monday night when they are usually closed. The drinks are reasonably priced and so are the... More

This venue is just to die for, its definitely a hidden jewel. Interior is beautiful, the owner was very welcoming and friendly. The staff was awesome. This spot was perfect for my private social party. Everyone had a ball of a time. Most certainly use this venue again. Thank you Kenneth Mangal

Do you find Long St getting too young & crazy some times? Julep is a surprising, charming little bar tucked away with delicious cocktails! Dim lights, exposed brick walls, walls adorned with black & white photos reminding me of film noir. On a quiet night, the bar is laid back and you can chill out on the couches for hours,... More

This is a great little bar set just off the action of Long Street. There are many reviews praising this as cocktail bar which is I ventured in there. It may have been an anomaly on the night I was there but I thought it was better described as a lounge bar that made decent cocktails. It's not the kind... More

My husband and I had read about this little cocktail bar in the guidebooks so decided to give it a try when we visited in March 2013. We struggled to find it at first and gave up looking until we stumbled across it on the way home purely by chance as I happened to be looking down a side street... More

We found Julep in an article in the Capetown newspaper titled "what to do on New Years Eve". Tucked in a little alley off Long Street, a friendly couple greeted us at the door. The 100 rand cover included a complimentary cocktail, hors de ouvre and endlessly flowing champagne at midnight. The cocktail choice could be any of the specialties... More
