  • Cupcakes and champagne for children with cancer

    Cupcake event picPisco Bar and our gorgeous friends, the Rougettes, invite you to join us as we nibble cupcakes, sip bubbly and raise funds for children with cancer.

    Our ‘Cupcakes and Bubbly’ event will be held on 27 September 2014, National Cupcake Day, a day of activities organised by community group Cupcakes of Hope to create awareness and raise funds for children with cancer.

    This year, Cupcakes of Hope is holding cupcake sales at 54 malls across South Africa on the day. Money raised in the past has helped more than 200 families and 14 charities. Last month funds raised helped an 8-year-old cancer patient, Graeme, receive a portable oxygen machine worth R42 000, which will make an enormous difference to his quality of life!

    The event at Pisco will cost R50 per person with all profits from ticket sales going to charity. For R55 you will get a delicious cupcake plus a glass of bubbly. The Rougettes will be in the house, serving the cupcakes and the bubbly … with a side order of song and dance.

  • Events venue

    KeenwaBarFrom weddings and birthdays to Burlesque dance shows, from wine pairings to steamy Latin dance nights, we pride ourselves on tailor-making fabulous events. Book Keenwa and Pisco Bar separately or together for anything from a smart, intimate dinner to a hiphop dance party with performers.

    Lunch or dinner groups can order from the restaurant’s a la carte menu or ask us to tailor-make a set menu. A selection of hot and cold tapas makes good finger food in the bar, or choose from a menu of delicious classic bar meals. Order party platters for groups. Being attached to a top-quality restaurant kitchen means a delicious selection of food in Pisco Bar, all of it freshly prepared.

    Make Pisco Bar your own for the night. Art exhibitions, graffiti artists, hiphop dancers, Latin deejays … we have hosted them all. Let us book a deejay or choose a playlist according to your brief, or just plug your music player into our excellent sound system and play your own selection.

    Our bar is always well-stocked, and our staff are friendly and professional. Let yourself be tempted to try the house cocktail, the Pisco Sour … it may well be the beginning of a Latin love affair. A late licence means the party doesn’t have to end early.

    The dance area attracts the energetic, while cocktail tables and couches allow others to spread out and mingle comfortably. Two sets of double doors keep the room airy, and the balcony gives a great view of goings-on the fanwalk below … and of the moon.

    Make use of our large screen TV or projector to watch sports events or do presentations for clients or staff.

    The large bathroom and toilet area, with plenty of vanity space, is serviced frequently, especially during parties.

    High pedestrian traffic along the fanwalk, which starts at our door, and regular CCID patrols ensure the safety of our staff and guests.


    We are always happy to waive venue hire in exchange for a minimum spend. Every event is treated as unique and all detail is negotiable. A guideline on minimum spend is R10k to book either space exclusively.


    Restaurant: 45 diners (or 55 in a group seated at long tables)

    Bar: 100, standing room only
