Blah Blah Bar

15 May , 2015  

What exists as an art gallery by day moonlights as a bar and night club by night. Except the gallery doesn’t close – it stays open. Blah Blah Bar has always been one of the great minor mysteries of Cape Town. Partly because I’d never been there, partly because I never actually knew what went on there. An art gallery that offers visitors something more than just art, it’s a bar come restaurant come creative space that really is a world its own.

The Erdmann Contemporary Gallery shares the two-floored space and features works from both established and up-and-coming artists, with a very distinct urban-centric focus. The motivation behind the space is to create a ‘community’ for creative like-minded people: who love music, a good party, good food, but who also question the status quo. Alternative and indie in a very urban way, it’s not for everybody, but if you’re open minded, laid-back and at peace with who you are (however eccentric) you’ll fit right in.

If a few rounds of drinks gets your appetite going, Ferdinand’s Pizza serves up chewy and delicious Naples style pizza. The gallery room upstairs doubles as a live music venue, featuring local bands, DJs and musicians, with a balcony overlooking city lights and the bustle of Kloof Street.

Blah Blah Bar, Erdmann Contemporary and Ferdinand’s fuse together to create a space that really can’t be matched anywhere else. The vibe, eclectic mix of patrons and multidimensional offerings surely make this a decent night out (even if slightly out of the ordinary).
