Have A Drink At The Orphanage Cocktail Emporium

What’s the best thing to do after a day of seeing the best Cape Town has to Offer? Have a drink, of course.

What better place to have amazing drinks than at Orphanage Cocktail emporium?


The Orphanage Cocktail Emporium is definitely the best place to stop if you appreciate a quirky atmosphere and a fun, colorful ambiance. Located at the city centre, diners are rewarded with the opportunity to appreciate expertly made cocktails.

However, you cannot just call what is served here ‘cocktails’; to keep up with the whimsical themes, the beverages here are referred to as elixirs, portions or an alchemy of drinks.

Wines, ales, beer and champagnes are also served at this wonderful Emporium.

Explore Robben Island

Robben Island is an interesting fixture in South African history.

This island not only served as a prison to Nelson Mandela but to two other South African Presidents – Kgalema Motlanthe and Jacob Zuma.

Presidents SA

Located at the Table Bay in Cape Town, this historical site will no doubt appeal to history lovers or anyone intrigued by South Africa’s history.

Robben Island has also be been classified as both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a South African National Heritage Site too.

The Island is actually one of the most famous Islands as well as one of the oldest prisons in South Africa.

Founded in the 17th century, the first ever prisoner is wildly believed to Autshumato – a Strandloper leader who also worked as an interpreter for the Europeans which settled on Cape Good.

For years after, the Island held some of the most important political prisoners in South African history.

Despite being a marine hazard, the historic sites remains a positive beacon for others as a result of stories like that of Nelson Mandela.
