Trendy design meets the chilled atmosphere Cape Town is famous for at Misfits by Ideas Cartel, a unique restaurant, events venue and work space. It’s a quirky and distinct space, from the trinkets, personal to the owners, placed around the restaurant, to its branding. Misfits has become very popular for Year End Parties, Corporate Events, Birthdays and All-round Celebrations.
The menu offers breakfast, cocktails, sushi and pizza, has indoor and outdoor seating, as well as an indoor golf area and wine cellar. Misfits is a new hip spot for your next outing or work trip in the CBD.

LOUNGE ON A VELVET COUCH OR SIT IN THE COURTYARD
With indoor and outdoor seating options, Misfits suits all seasons. Indoors there are patterned mats and cow-hide rugs on the floors, warm earthy tones throughout the space, deep-blue velvet and brown leather chairs with hints of gold on the legs of the tables and chairs. Come along for relaxed dining and incredible drinks.

The outdoor area feels like a courtyard in a charming European city, dotted with tables covered in white table cloths. Inside, there’s a large, curved communal table under a row of hanging woven light shades. There are also seats at the bar with tall, comfortable tub-style chairs, small intimate tables or opt for one of the booths, where you can lounge on a leather couch and listen to the live music, with a cocktail in hand.

TEST WHOSE SKILLS ARE BY PAR THE BEST
Seasoned golfer or amateur, the Misfits indoor-golf simulator is great fun. You can get a lesson from an expert, or ramp up the competitive spirit with friends and play for the bill. But if you just want to chill, the simulator offers a fun experience
