About The River Club

Fast approaching a full century old, The River Club in Observatory is under new ownership and has undergone an extensive upgrade resulting in an appealing new look and exciting conference centre. Centrally located just 15 minutes from Cape Town International Airport, the City and the Southern Suburbs in all directions; the River Club’s new conference centre is the perfect address for bringing people together.

Inspired by the colours and textures of the Southern African landscape, the centre’s eight rooms have been tastefully renovated, each with its own distinct character, to bring this early 20th Century landmark into a contemporary new era. The backdrop of mountain-scapes, golf greens and riverside bird life, brings a calming appeal to any gathering.


From board room meetings to gala dinners, conferences and celebrations, The River Club can host your delegates and guests in style. Exacting attention to excellent service is subtly delivered whilst visitors enjoy a seamless experience of relaxation and connection. A number of menu options allow you to tailor-make your event, whilst also accommodating guest with special dietary requirements.

Not only is The River Club a conference centre by day, it is also a prime venue by night, perfect for any number of celebrations, ceremonies and shows. Additional lighting, sound and décor can further customise your experience of this fantastically functional venue.

Ample free parking and security controlled access add to the ease and peace-of-mind for organisers and guests alike.

The renovation also included a tech overhaul with all the rooms now offering top end audio-visual and presentation aids, as well as free wireless internet connection. The conference centre team will assist at every stage of the set-up and strike and event co-ordination services are available too.

Situated in the River Club’s broader lifestyle complex, conference and group delegates can breakaway to the golf driving range or mashie course. Why not take the team on a challenge and see if anyone can get the hole-in-one to win an Audi A1.

After the conference, energised teams can talk it through or just unwind with a visit to the resident Slug & Lettuce pub and restaurant.
