The Twankey Bar

Western Cape

Seafood, Champagne and Oyster Bar

Our dedication, to restoring historic landmarks, ensures that we work with significant existing elements to create something that is both memorable and spectacular.

This commitment, to preserving and improving on what already exists, is what the ground floor of the old Temple Chambers (BoE building) – in the Cape Town city centre – has experienced. It has been carefully restored and is now home to the Twankey Seafood, Champagne and Oyster Bar.

The Twankey Seafood, Champagne and Oyster Bar is a rare find. Here flowing champagne and local wine, the freshest seafood tapas, elegant décor and sublime local music tell a glamorous story.

The large street-side windows create a unique viewing room for The Twankey guests with glimpses of the Houses of Parliament and Table Mountain. While its interior, all plush comfortable décor and soulful music, effectively distinguishes it from the lively city bustle that lies street-side of the glass.

The Twankey’s design and central location gives diners the opportunity to indulge in delicious champagne and South African wine, delectable seafood tapas and other seafood delicacies, while watching authentic Cape Town pass them by from the best seats in the house.

Open: Monday – Thursday 16.00 to 23.00 | Friday and Saturdays 16.00 to Midnight.
