CLOSED: Behind A Pink Door And a Fence Sits An Exciting New Place

CLOSED: Gardens Collectors Club is waiting to be discovered

You might not see it the first time you walk by, but if you look a little harder, hiding behind a large, pink door and a patterned concrete fence, is The Gardens Collectors Club – at 51 Kloof Street.

This eatery secludes itself effectively, with its brick-floored courtyard filled with plants and trees, providing a cool and calm atmosphere. But there’s no shortage of life and bustle when its called for. The courtyard downstairs has limited seating; the inside area upstairs is much larger. It also has a slightly different vibe – a comfortable, home-like feel.

THE FOOD
There’s a good selection from sourdough pizzas to steaks and burgers (veggie burgers, too). There’s also tacos, prawn and Waldorf salads – what they call classic American dishes. They are playing around with some unique tastes in the desserts such as a gin-and-tonic sorbet in a cone and stout beer ice-cream.

THE DRINKS
They specialise in craft beer, with eight different craft beer on tap and 20 bottled. They change about once a month, with new bottled beers coming in. Then there's gin and tonic on draft too, but also a fair selection of cocktails and wine.

Tip: The kitchen swears by the bone marrow burger.

Opening times: 12pm–10pm at night. The bar remains open till 12pm. Every day from 4pm–6pm drinks are half-price.
