We found the Orbit with some internet research, and my grown daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful night of music with Mkhize / Washington Quartet knocking out jazz standards and their own compositions. Diverse crowd, with good food and a cool club atmosphere. Within easy Uber feom our guest house, it was a a pleasant surprise and a great start to our first time in South Africa.

We went to listen to unconventional jazz bands. The show had a great level. The attendees were knowledgeable experts of the musical delicacy.
People enter The Orbit through a bookstore where they often make a tasting of excellent South African wines

We had our Christmas company lunch at The Orbit. Their food I delicious and very good but do expect to wait some time for it.
You can either sit in the restaurant downstairs or the bistro type upstairs where live music is played. They have a good bar and the staff are friendly but make sure you go with a relaxed intention and not immediately hungry. Otherwise a good place.
