  • Raising money for sick children: cupcakes, Pongracz and Burlesque


    CupcakesFinal copyPour a glass of liquid gold (Pongracz), mix with a deliciously sweet Whimsical cupcake and add some song and dance. Add a good cause and you have a recipe that leaves nothing to be desired.

    A grand time was had by all at Pisco Bar on Saturday September 27 as the Rougettes, Whimsical cupcakes and Pongracz cooked up a feast of an evening to raise funds for children with cancer.

    Saturday (27 September 2014) was National Cupcake Day, a day of activities organised by community group Cupcakes of Hope to create awareness and raise funds for children with cancer.

    Cupcakes of Hope held cupcake sales at 54 malls across South Africa on the day. Money raised will be used to help afflicted families and children’s charities.

    The event at Pisco cost R50 a head, which included a glass of Pongracz and a cupcake from Whimsical Cupcakes, with all proceeds from ticket sales going to charity. For another R10 guests could enter a prize draw to wine a magnum of Pongracz.

    The Rougettes were in the house all night, serving cupcakes and Pongracz … with a big, delicious side order of song and dance.

    CupcakesThank you to the Rougettes for adding so much sparkle to this event, and to Whimsical Cupcakes and Pongracz for your delicious and generous sponsorship.

    Details about the amount raised coming soon. Watch this space!

  • 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)
