Kloof Street bar with pizza and boozy slushies
Plus, milkshakes, ice cream & vinyl DJs at PALS
Last updated: 20 November 2023
Pizzas, pals and boozy slushies – name a better night out.
The new hot spot on Kloof Street (next to Yours Truly) is a little pizza joint called PALS. There’s boozy slushies, massive pizza slices and soft-serve ice cream. It’s the kind of place you want to hangout with friends and listen to vinyl DJs.

IF THE ‘90S WERE A HANGOUT
'80s diner meets '90s hangout at PALS. The retro space is curiously decorated with big Coca Cola bottles, neon signs, boxing gloves, chequered tiles, old-school brand logos like Pepsi Cola and road signs, and vintage photographs (including the iconic pic of Madiba looking the epitome of cool in NY clothing).
PALS has a quirky interior with bright pops of colour. Image: PALS
It’s quite an intimate space, with only a handful of bar tables inside and a few tables spilling onto the street. You can expect classic 80s, 90s, and early 2000s bops playing in the background, plus live vinyl DJs playing between Thursday and Saturday.
You can also shop in-house mini merch lines at PALS. Image: PALS
BOOZY (AND NON-BOOZY) SLUSHIES
PALS has a real treat on the menu: Alcoholic slushies. There’s pina colada, mojito, strawberry daiquiri, mango daiquiri or margarita. You can order by the glass, or a jug to share with friends. There’s also lemonade or iced coffee non-alcoholic slushies.

GIANT PIZZAS AND SOFT SERVE ICE CREAM
The pizzas are massive (think traditional New York pizza size), which is great for sharing with your mates. There’s everything from your classic Margarita, Regina and Pepperoni to the chef's special (which changes regularly). For dessert you can treat yourself to an old-school soft serve and flake (pick between chocolate or vanilla), or vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or Oreo milkshake.

The curious decor, massive sharing pizzas, slushie jugs and 90s music makes for a vibey night out with your pals.
