Newly opened Le Quartier Lounge Bar offers artisanal beers, local wines and ‘food-based’ craft cocktails; using South African ingredients such as, mebos, sour figs, buchu and nettles.
The new bar and lounge is unlike anything Franschhoek has ever seen. Daring to be different, executive chef, Margot Janse and general manager Linda Coltart teamed up to create a range of innovative cocktails driven by seasonal produce both sweet and savoury. The recipes have incorporated many different cooking techniques, from infusions and sous vide to blending and smoking.
Additionally, expect incredible bar food, dreamed up by Margot Janse to pair with the marvellous drinks with a ‘Bar Bites’ menu featuring dishes like, Crayfish Popcorn, Wildebeest Doughnuts and Gruyere Oreos.
Open from noon to midnight, the cocktail emporium is a stylish place to meet and relax in a comfortable yet trendy space. Franschhoek is an eclectic and international area, and this bar affords the locals and visitors a place to mingle, you could be sitting next to a winemaker, doctor or chef—and the locals all have an interesting tale to tell.
The space has been created for people to linger in: soft with grey and yellow accents, rich linens and easy lines, and hanging from the ceiling are lights made from crystal decanters. The long bar stretches in a circular angle and is supported by oversized dining table legs, guests can sit here on felt pink bar stools , on the assortment of sofas and chairs, or outside on the patio.
We look forward to inviting you into our new and exciting world!
