Looking for a unique and captivating cocktail experience in Cape Town? Look no further than Fable, a storied bar on Bree Street that brings local legends to life through inventive cocktails and a vibrant atmosphere that will leave you wanting more.
The Menu at Fable
Fable is not for the faint of heart when it comes to cocktails. The bar experiments with daring combinations, such as The Watcher of The South – a refreshing and fruity cocktail that combines brandy, oolong tea, lemon juice, apple, nutmeg, and lager. Their number-one seller, The Kronendal Lovers, is a visually stunning Japanese gin infused with elderflower and peppermint pelargonium that dazzles the senses. These cocktails are not only delicious, but they are also aesthetically impressive. You’ll be talking about them long after you finish your drink.
Fable is a venue where storytelling takes center stage. The bar is adorned with murals featuring characters from local myths and legends, designed by Cape Town tattoo artist Raoul Goetze. The stories behind the murals are interwoven into the cocktails, so with each sip, you’re transported more profoundly into the fables. The DJs ramp up the beats later in the evening, and the bar’s atmosphere goes into hyperdrive, pulses quickening as punters pivot from cocktails to vodka-Red Bulls and Jagerbombs.
The Food at Fable
Fable’s food menu is cheekily curated to match your party’s state of mind. The selection of comfort food includes grilled cheese on brioche with bitters-infused butter, chicken wings sticky with a sake glaze, and a vegan burger made with a Beyond Meat patty that’s hard to distinguish from their juicy Cadillac burger.
Fable is a unique and captivating experience where each cocktail tells a different story. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable, making recommendations to suit your tastes. The vibe is lively, and the crowd is always up for a good time. If you’re a cocktail enthusiast who loves a good story, Fable is the place to be.
