Alexander Bar & Café to open small theatre space

Alexander Bar & CaféAlexander Bar & Café are pleased to announce the opening of a tiny theatre space upstairs at the already-famous Cape Town CBD restaurant and bar in mid-October. By tiny, they mean small, boutique. No swinging pets and wear protection.

No longer do you need to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous torture.

Starting mid-October all kinds of shows will be happening: music, stand up, revues, comedy, readings, storytelling, screenings, book launches, nude beat lesbian poetry. Instead of having runs of things they are opting once-off performances and recurring weekly and monthly events. Some shows are already loaded on their system, see below.

Just say “Yes, please.”, and book here.
