Cellar Dwellers Event – HQ, Cape Town

Experience an evening of food and wine at HQ’s Cellar Dwellers


Join Diemersdal Wine Estate at Headquarters (HQ) on Saturday, 30 November 2013 for an evening devoted to sublime cuisine paired with superlative wines: Cellar Dwellers at HQ.

For a moment there it seemed as if winter would never end, so now summer is in full swing you’ll find that you won’t need to travel all the way to the wine-lands to mix some of the best wine and steak South Africa has on offer. Indulge yourself with a night at the iconic steakhouse and bar located in Cape Town’s Heritage Square. The interior is sophisticated and moody with exposed stonewalls and leather seating; it’s the perfect atmosphere for drinking wine – and on the night expect to feel as if you’ve stumbled upon an urban wine cellar.

Diemersdal has emerged from their quaint Durbanville valley to host an evening and lead a tasting through their range of wines, which notably includes a Sauvignon Blanc that will compliment the HQ salad and a Merlot to enhance the succulent HQ steak. The estate has run through six generations of the Louw family with all knowledge being passed from father to son. With 300 years of combined winemaking prowess, Diemersdal produces classic style wines mixing old-world quality with a new-world approach. The wine tasting will be partnered with a three-course meal for R250; expect HQ’s famous sirloin and thin-cut fries as the main feature.

The night will be fun, informative and intimate, but only two words really matter: red wine and steak!

Call 021 424 6373 to make a reservation.

Le Roi – Opening


Le Roi Beach Bar – Camps Bays Coronation


A new jewel has been added to the Camps Bay crown, LE ROI (say; ‘Le-Wah’), opened its doors this weekend. Embracing the pillars of life, music and art—a diverse crowd gathered to enjoy sensational views and groovy house music against a funky yet sophisticated backdrop on both Saturday and Sunday nights.

Saturday’s private opening welcomed movers-and-shakers from worlds of fashion, music, art and business. The atmosphere was high-end without being pretentious, welcoming and warm—with the kind of buzz only a room full of creatives can generate. There was plenty of fuel in the form of king sized sushi plates, decadent fruit platters, delicious cocktails, along with all the usual premium spirits and wines, and helpful servers on-hand. Surveying the weaving and bopping, colourful beach bar, it was clear Le Roi has created a landscape for like-minded people to share ideas, opinions and interests. Sunday’s session enjoyed the same quixotic mix of Cape Town’s mavericks—a portent for a glorious summer ahead.

Le Roi is a groove bar that specialises in a unique offering of house music with a retro spin, and avant-garde DJane Miss Pickett spun a magic set on Saturday. As the peach-gold sunset faded into the sea, Miss Pickett wove a soundscape of deep house beats to more soulful tunes as the stars came out. On Sunday, Le Roi opened to the public and top local DJ, Dean FUEL commanded the dance floor with his intuitive brand of groovy house—as if to say, Sundays in Camps Bay are back!

Inspired by the vibrant palette of Vladimir Tretchikoff’s work, the unusual décor creates a stylish backdrop from which to enjoy the view of Cape Town’s most famous beach, masterful electronic dance music, and the kind of people you’d love to have on speed dial.

A launch to remember and nights to never forget—the reign of The King has just begun.

About Le Roi Beach Bar:

A new jewel has been added to the Camps Bay crown; LE ROI (pronounced; “Le Wah”) overlooks the sandy white expanse of Cape Town’s most famous beach. It embraces like-minded people with a passion for life, music and art.

Inspired by the vibrant palette of Tretchikoff’s work, the décor is intrepid and unusual and creates a stylish backdrop from which to enjoy a wide range of equally inventive cocktails.

When darkness creeps up the beach, allow Trechikoff’s “Miss Wong and the Lady from Orient” to play host to the good vibrations and contentment that people search for whilst watching the sun go down over the azure sea – drink in hand.

It’s all about being bold and vivacious yet retro and vintage. Simply put, Le Roi is not your typical Camps Bay beach bar – instead it’s a sensational escape.
