Bertrand Café Keeping Jazz Culture Alive In Maboneng


The Joburg jazz scene is alive and kicking at one of Maboneng’s hottest spots – Bertrand Café. An eclectic blend of coffee shop, restaurant and jazz bar, Bertrand Café keeps the entertainment coming until almost midnight! You could quite literally arrive in the morning for a cup of coffee and finish the night off on the dancefloor, all in this one space.

Bertrand Jazz Lounge 

Bertrand Cafe caters to all moods and appetites. Whether you crave a morning caffeine fix, a leisurely lunch, or a lively evening with friends, Bertrand has something for you. Start your day with a cup of their aromatic coffee and a flaky croissant on the sunny outdoor patio. As the day progresses, the menu expands to include a selection of French-inspired dishes alongside African specialties.

A Multi-Faceted Experience

In the evenings, Bertrand transforms into a lively jazz bar. The sultry sounds of saxophone fill the air, creating a perfect ambiance for a relaxed evening. They also host regular events featuring local talent. Not forgetting their karaoke evenings on Wednesdays from 18:00. Keep an eye on their Instagram page for future event announcements.

What’s on Their Menu?

Bertrand Café also boasts an eclectic set menu, featuring strong French cuisine influences. Their standout main dishes include burgers, juicy rib eye steak served with seasonal veggies and your choice of sauce, a delicious seafood platter, and a slow-roasted confit duck leg. This is not your standard café grub! Paired with a tall glass of wine and the jazzy sounds of the café, we can’t think of a more satisfying way to enjoy a meal.

African Buffet Thursdays

Maboneng is one of the biggest hot spots in the city for traditional African cuisine. Stop by Bertrand Café on Thursday evenings for their African Cuisine feast. They serve up a delightful array of Central African delicacies with live entertainment. Immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of the Democratic Republic of Congo through a spread of delicious traditional dishes.
