STELLENBOSCH STREET SOIREES KICK OFF
The popular Stellenbosch Street Soirees are back to fill the town oak-lined streets with unique food and wine culture for locals and visitors alike to sip, savour and share in the vibrant spirit of this ‘forever young’ town. The first gathering to hit this social hotspot of Drosty Street this Wednesday when cars will make way for a merry crowd to mingle, indulge in Stellenbosch wines and snack on gourmet bites by famed resident foodies.

Cold Turkey has had a couples of very high, highs and very low, lows during their time of engagement. From the small beginnings in Darling street, to the massive success of Amadodas (which was ruined by crime and forced them to move to Green Point) and now at the Train Lodge. The owners have certainly not wanted to let a good thing down but have had to contend with the realities of hosting a party. While things have been quietening down, they’re back with a super sonic BANG as summer 2015 rolls into Cape Town.
Cold Turkey has a new roof top venue (my favourite) above the Grand Central Shopping Center (opposite the train station). It will be hosted on the top couple of floors of the parking lot, including the rooftop. If the wind proves to be too much the party will move inside. Expect 2 dancefloors, 22 acts and 12 hours of awesome beats including Hyphen, Maramza, White Nite, Ruffest, Blotchy +++
Cold Turkey allows BYOB under the following conditions:
One bottle per person whether that be hard tac or champagne thats up to you.
No beer or mixers to be brought in as they will be available at the bar.
Please note that you will not be able to enter and exit the venue at will. Once you’re in, you’re in. This is for the safety and security of all.
Where: Grand Central Shopping Center
Time: midday to midnight (12pm – 12am)
Cost: Early bird R97 (This Sunday only, link will be posted). Door R190
