Village Idiot

Bar in City Bowl, Foreshore, Bo-Kaap & De Waterkant

Somewhere between a cosy neighbourhood pub and a hip Boho bar, Village Idiot is a convivial spot for a cocktail or a pint of craft beer watched over by the bar's mascot, Oskar, a life-size stuffed ostrich. On weekends expect eclectic entertainment including braai nights, costume parties, DJs and sport on the big screen.

The food menu (mains R60-120) marries North American bar food with South African dishes like bobotie, Durban curry and malva pudding.
