About Gate69

Right in the heart of the city of Cape Town surrounded by hotels, shops, restaurants and entertainment spots is one of the most intimately over-the-top cabaret theatres, Gate69. Affectionately known as Cape Town’s Purple Palace, Gate69 is plush and opulent, with a distinct ‘Moulin Rouge’ look and feel. It is mysterious, endlessly magical, and undeniably soulful.

This intriguing hotspot is popular amongst locals and regulars for the world-class cabaret performances, which are punctuated by colours, song and dance that are nothing short of an utter sensory extravaganza. But, it is also a fantastic events venue. It is ideal for product launches, team building initiatives, guest speakers, and private parties with plenty of pizzazz.

Of course, no celebration is complete without delicious food and Gate69 boasts some irresistible mezze-style cuisine. The Cape Winelands are the world capital of excellent wines and many of these are available to patrons of Gate69. The contemporary bar also stocks a range of ice-cold beers, spirits, and soft drinks.

Cathy Specific makes the perfect hostess. At seven feet tall with platinum blonde hair, she is quite a sight to behold. She combines her seductive allure with a definite sense of intimidation.

Gate69 is situated on the ever-bustling Bree Street in the centre of town. This is within a few minutes’ drive from the V & A Waterfront, Table Mountain, the Two Oceans Aquarium, and the CTICC. The Cape Town International Airport is only about 25 to 30 minutes away, and Stellenbosch is less than an hour’s drive from the city centre.
