In the midst of the busy streets of Parktown north lies this gem of a restaurant called Workshop 55.
Now this place is ideal for gin lovers, with interiors in the restaurant give off a feel of a rustic but modern industrial workshop. The lounge which is adjacent to the restaurant inspired by the vintage ages from the 1900’s that make me think of The Great Eastern Ship with the custom-made wallpaper which honestly passes off as art on its own. These two spaces blend in so well together yet give off different experiences. (See Full Interview)
The bar has extensive options of wine & spirits, they feature their spirits so well in their creative cocktails that are prepared with fresh and frozen fruits and herbs to go with the aromatic gins & tonics that are sourced local and international gins and tonics.Now, of course, a good drink needs some great food to go with. Chef Alex and his team ensure you don’t fall short of that experience as the food here is prepared with fresh local produce and so much car, the type of cuisine they make here is not boxed into one classification this is what I would describe as art on a plate and a party in your mouth. All the elements and textures of a dish are executed so well in one dish that surely each bite won’t give you the same experience.
They have an entrance fee of R240 included in this is a choice of three dishes from their selective modern tapas-style menu.
