About The Crypt Jazz Restaurant

If you are planning a stay in Cape Town, be sure to include the Crypt Jazz Restaurant on your itinerary. This vibey spot is right in the heart of the City Bowl (or CBD), and promises great music, good food, and an unbeatable ambience. It is perfect for a meal after a long day spent exploring the Mother City, or for sundowners as you get ready for an awesome night on the town.

The menu boasts an eclectic mix of influences and flavours. Starters include a generous mezze platter, homemade gravlax, or grilled camembert with caramelised pears. The main courses are simply delicious. They include a fig and gorgonzola tart, Karoo aged rump, marinated chicken breast, or a generous cheese platter with artisan bread and delectable preserves. Créme brulée with hazelnut biscotti, a homemade chocolate tart, or lemon cheesecake with raspberry coulis are perfect for visitors with a sweet tooth.

The line-up of jazzy entertainment can be viewed on their website and there may be a cover charge for live shows. Different performers are hosted regularly to give jazz-enthusiasts a wide variety of acts and styles to enjoy.
The Crypt Jazz Restaurant is the brainchild of Derk Blaisse, who loves food and music in equal quantities. He shares his passion with Michael Weeder of the St George’s Cathedral. Together, they make excellent jazz available to the public and local communities, and celebrate the freshest ingredients and flavour combinations.

Be part of the passion and commitment to excellent cuisine and fabulous South African jazz when you visit the Crypt Jazz Restaurant in Wale Street.
