KICKBACK AT KICKOFF TIME
A great place to kick back and watch your favourite team play soccer.

Play it safe and reserve a table at Rick's Café Américain


Rick's Cafe Americain | 2 Park Road | Gardens | +27(0)21 424 1100     

BE HAPPY
The Happy Oak, a vintage-style pub and grill in the heart of Stellies is cozy and relaxed. The Irish-inspired menu offers guests hearty food to warm the soul.

RIGHT IN THE ACTION                         
Make a trip outside of the CBD to watch the matches at this laidback bar in Observatory. Sit on a bean bag and be surrounded by the cheers and jeers of the youthful fans that congregate here. This chilled-out watering hole does delicious and very budget-friendly-yet-filling food, like cheese fries and veggie enchiladas. Pull up a comfy couch and grab a few mates to join you at Foreign Exchange
