Capetonians can now relive the thrilling secrecy of the Prohibition era by sneaking in the secret entrance of a cool new speakeasy – only for those in the know. You’ll have heard whispers about The Art of Duplicity, Cape Town’s award-winning hidden cocktail bar that is arguably our best-kept secret.
The Art of Duplicity is exactly the type of unique and high-end experience we champion here at What’s on in Cape Town.
Once you’ve booked via their web system, you’ll receive the address and a secret password a few hours ahead of your booking to gain entry to the bar.
What follows is an evening filled with live poetry, jazz and a bespoke cocktail menu and creative tapas-style offering.
This top cocktail bar in Cape Town is a haven for spirit aficionados and serves up inventive cocktails by master mixologist and co-founder, Brent Perremore.
Perremore backs up his credentials by weaving his artisanal cocktails with all the trappings of a respected bar – King Cube ice rocks, stunning glassware, and a showy library of obscure gin, vodka, and tequila from across the globe.
The Art of Duplicity has been raking in multiple awards including a recent nod of approval as the overall ‘Bar to Watch’ in Africa and the Middle East from industry heavyweight, The Spirit Business.
You can look forward to a cosy and intimate atmosphere with moody lighting and fashionably kitschy decor for true old-world charm.
So if you’re looking for something more spontaneous and entertaining to do in town, we highly recommend giving this space shot. The Art of Duplicity is also slowly building a solid reputation as a great platform for up-and-coming poetry and jazz artists.
