Roots Bar in Obz

Roots bar

Roots in Observatory, a bar with its own man-made beach, is quite unlike other bars in the city. Take a look here and here to see what I mean - isn't it awesome when people play with fire?

Apart from the beach-away-from-the-sea feel, at Roots you can have a few drinks with friends while watching sporting events on a big screen. They also host live music acts catering for a wide variety of tastes, from Reggae/Rock/Fusion bands like Tidal Waves to Afrikaans metal bans like Fokofpolisiekar.

If you're not sure where to find Roots, they're at 96 Station Road, which is right here on the map.

As our holiday in Bloemfontein and Johannesburg draws to an end, thanks again to Mandy for helping us out with our daily photos from Cape Town!

    Isn’t Roots where the old Heidelberg Tavern used to be?

    Those were the days… buying a quart of cider for next to nothing and watching the bands :)

    Hi Kim – that’s a good question. I’ve never been to the Heidelberg Tavern, but from my quick search on the Web it seems as though you’re correct. Thanks for the info.
