Set in the heart of the CBD, Heritage Square is home to the award-winning Chef’s Warehouse, and iconic steakhouse, HQ.
We look a little further into this beautiful square, and share a few hidden gems that are just waiting to be discovered.
Cape Town Gin Company
Distilling in Elgin, the Cape Town Gin Company has an intimate tasting room just outside the entrance to HQ, where you can taste their three gins, including their “Pink Lady”- with flavours of hibiscus and rosewater, and their iconic “Cape Town Rooibos Red Gin” – celebrating one of the Cape’s most famous exports, together with elements of orange and cinnamon.

Roost & Co
Aiming to provide a wholesome chicken dining experience for the whole family, Roast & Co uses only free-range birds, served alongside a selection of delicious dishes – think pumpkin fritters, charred corn and truffle pap among others. We have a feeling that your Sunday roast won’t quite be the same again.

Dorrance City Winery
The passion project of Christophe and Sabrina, Dorrance offers an urban wine cellar and tasting room in the heart of the city – expect narrow doorways, exposed granite walls, dimly-lit rows of barriques. Hailing from Calvados, Christophe has used his experience as a supplier of premium French barriques to produce finely crafted wines in the French tradition. View the full range of wines here. If all that wine tasting has made you hungry, then we suggest popping into their wine bar and restaurant, Bouchon, next door.

You Bet It’s Ice Cream
A relatively new kid to the block, You Bet It’s Ice Cream has quickly become known for its constantly changing flavours, vegan options – and boozy ice creams. From Chardonnay to gin and vodka, you might easily be tempted to switch your after-dinner drink for an after-dinner ice cream. A nightcap and dessert in one? It gets the thumbs up from us.
