About Foundry

Parktown North is one of Johannesburg’s northern suburbs and is a historical residential area. It is also home to The Foundry, which pairs fine craft beers and whiskies with delicious food for a fantastic dining experience. The style is distinctly “sidewalk chic”, with a dash of eclectic design and elegant finishes.

The Foundry is known for its excellent craft beers (of which there are well over 80 varieties), whiskies and coffees. These are sourced from some of the finest microbreweries, distilleries and Arabica bean growers from all over the world to be enjoyed in the capital city of the Gauteng Province. However, the craft beers are sourced only from South Africa, giving local breweries the opportunity to showcase their top-notch produce. Each producer and supplier has been chosen specifically for their quality and unique appeal, fulfilling a very special set of criteria to ensure the best dining and drinking experience. It is no wonder, then, that The Foundry is a popular spot for locals, but also a must-visit for tourists and visitors from around the world.

In addition to these fine refreshments, there is a full wine list, as well as a novel cocktail list that comprises a number of exciting and unusual concoctions. The Big Lebowski is not to be missed. It is made with vanilla vodka, lavender liqueur, martini bianco, martini extra dry and lime juice.

The menu is varied and comprehensive, with a number of tasty temptations to complement the lashings of liquid refreshment on offer. Charcuterie planks and wood-fired dishes are offered alongside the pit-smoked pulled pork; beer battered hake; lamb koftas with mint, lime yoghurt and cucumber; roast bone marrow and mushrooms on toast; sea bass with a Pernod lemon butter sauce; mushroom ravioli with sage and truffle sauce; and plenty more. This assortment of fresh flavours and awesome dishes makes The Foundry a perfect spot for lunch with friends, an evening with your significant other, or a relaxed business meeting.
