Located on the corner of Wale and Adderley streets in Cape Town’s city centre, The Twankey Bar, which is part of the luxurious Taj Cape Town hotel, is spearheaded by Cape Town Mixologist, AJ Snetler, winner of numerous mixology awards and custodian of the decadent, crafted cocktail menu .

Using intriguing cocktail-making methods from wood-chip smoking and blazing to teapot brewing, every ingredient is made fresh on the premises: every infusion, syrup and garnish is made from scratch.


The deep traditions of the Spice Route are evident in the food menu. The food is an eclectic mélange of carefully created tapas-styled dishes. It features refined versions of Indian street snacks as well as local and international influences in dishes like the Asian salmon tataki, the spiced lamb and blue cheese croquettes and fish and chip sliders.



The Twankey Bar also serves the finest Cape wines and sparkling wines and a selection of locally-produced craft beers.
