Obviouzly Armchair is the fun, newly refurbished red building in the heart of bohemian Observatory with its buzzing nightlife.
The pub décor is eclectic and a throwback from the past, in which the musical heritage is palpable (having once been the launchpad of most of South Africa’s successful band). Hosting a variety of events every night of the week, Obviouzly Armchair is an ideal spot to catch up with friends over a few drinks.
Comedy is Obviouzly Armchair’s specialty, with Armchair Sundays Comedy Night, featuring a line-up of up-and-coming comedians; the Monday Improv Comedy Show, hosted by The Long Shots and showcasing the top of improv comedy from around the globe; and the Open Mic Comedy Night, for those who want to try their hand at stand-up, all being regular, popular events. There is also an Open Mic Acoustic night, which provides a platform for the hidden talent in Cape Town.
