Venue Setting

Zsa Zsa is poised to infuse Cape Town’s social scene with high-energy glamour and timeless charm, offering a dash of whimsy. This chic Mediterranean restaurant and bar aim to evoke the elegant, laid-back vibe of the 1960s Riviera right in the heart of Cape Town's bustling CBD. The restaurant's name pays homage to the iconic Hungarian-born actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, famed for her glamorous lifestyle and quick-witted humour. Gabor, often recognized as one of the first celebrities famous simply for being famous, epitomized glamour and revelry. Known for her playful and witty remarks, she embodied the lively spirit that Zsa Zsa aspires to offer. Here, guests are encouraged to dress up, indulge, unwind, and create unforgettable memories amid an enchanting ambience.

Culinary inspiration at Zsa Zsa is drawn from the vibrant coastal cuisines of the French and Italian Mediterranean. The menu harmonizes luxurious ingredients with the humble recipes of the region, using fresh, locally sourced produce to craft simple yet exquisite dishes. Every bite is designed to transport you to the sun-kissed beaches of St. Tropez, the dramatic cliffs of the Amalfi Coast, and the vibrant shores of Ibiza, capturing the essence of dining in these sophisticated locales.

Inside, Zsa Zsa's rich velvet interiors and bespoke murals conjure the sensuality and opulence of the 1960s and ’70s. The spacious venue features elegant dining tables and booths, a stylish cocktail lounge, and a DJ booth, all bathed in stunning lighting that enhances the overall experience. Expect superb acoustics and a soundtrack that elevates the atmosphere while fostering a convivial, welcoming environment.

The creation of Zsa Zsa is the brainchild of local visionaries Shaun Westwood, Yolande Mathias, and Ty Wiese. "Zsa Zsa is a celebration of the joy of living," Wiese explains. "Our guests can look forward to a blend of old-school glamour, a touch of cheekiness, and an abundance of fun." 

As Zsa Zsa Gabor herself once quipped: “I believe that in life you should always take the serious things lightly and the light things seriously. This attitude of mine gets me into a lot of trouble.”
