Liam Tomlin is behind yet another special offering coming to Cape Town's Bree Street. The Bailey is located opposite Tomlin’s original Chefs Warehouse site and is set in a 3-storey historic building. It boasts a café, brasserie, champagne bar and a whiskey bar.

WORK YOUR WAY THROUGH THE 3-STOREYS
The Bailey is split into three levels with four different spaces – each with its own mood. Café Bailey is an all-day café perfect for a light breakfast or lunch, while Brasserie Bailey is slightly more polished with classic French dining.
If you’re in the mood for a cosy night out, The Bailey also has two in-house bars. Sip on bubbly and snack on oysters at the Champagne Bar, or opt for a glass of single-malt at the Old Bailey Whiskey Bar.
