Now Open: New Spot VIXI On Strand Street
Strand Street soon to be the new Bree: Mouthwatering steaks and bespoke cocktails now at VIXI Social House
VIXI (rhymes with 'Vicky') Social House is a new steak and cocktail spot on the corner of Strand and Bree Streets.
REPURPOSED INTERIOR YOU HAVE TO SEE
Much of their interior comes from repurposed material from Ross Demolition. For example, the 1956 parquet flooring that they used to decorate the bar (come see for yourself).
The Roman numeral XVII, when changed anagrammatically to VIXI, translates from the Latin language to "I lived". It's special to see how materials that had previous lives come alive again, and with such character.
A GOOD COFFEE
Those who've been following the news of VIXI Social House will know that they offered free coffees int eh lead-up to opening, which allowed them to perfect their own brew. The doors are officially open, and now we're really curious to pop round and tatse the end results.
They roast their coffee on-site, putting the 'micro' in micro-roastery.
Pop in on the corner of Strand and Bree Streets with a friendly face and tell them CapeTownMagazine.com told you to check out the cool new spot.
