Kloof Street House: A Gatsby-Esque Winter Wonderland

Kloof Street House: A Gatsby-Esque Winter Wonderland

Breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner in a cosy innercity eatery.

This striking Victorian building where Kloof Street House resides has housed many well-heeled restaurants over the years, the most recent of which is Kloof Street House, set back from the bustling high street in a serene treed courtyard.

Inside, Gatsby-esque furnishings and finishes set the scene for a fantastical dining experience. Think lofty ceilings, deep-buttoned leather sofas, a cosy fireplace library and dark-wood floors, with subtle lighting, candlelit tables and three crackling fireplaces creating a cosy ambience.

Kloof Street House Entrance

Outside, a sheltered courtyard, with fairy lights, heaters, twinkling candles and greenery is the only place to be for cosy winter brunches, lunches and dinner soirées. Toss in a live-jazz set on Sunday afternoons from 1pm, and you have the makings of an unforgettable afternoon in the innercity.
