We’re seeking a dynamic individual as our Venue Manager.

Set in a 220 year-old Heritage building, the venue offers over 30 artisanal wines and bubblies by the glass, crafted SA beers and spirits along with delicious bar snacks and accompaniments.

The bar offers pool, darts and board games and presents an energetic and hip vibe. The Tasting Centre offers an Urban wine tasting experience during the day, and private function area for private bookings and/or formal tastings in the evenings.


Opened in December 2018, the venue is still young, but strongly entering its second phase of development. The company is an established wine retailer of 15 years, which services over 25,000 customers directly across South Africa and Namibia.
