Workshop 55

Tapas and bourbon. If we could, we would enjoy that combination every day. Whisky bars are on the rise lately and has become a little luxury we all need more of. Although Workshop 55 in Parktown North is not strictly a malt lover’s haven by trade, it boasts all the bells and whistles necessary to host a whiskey tasting. The tapas bar has a wide variety of whiskies on stand by, just waiting for you to pay them a visit.

Churchills Bar

Winston Churchill once said that he’s taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of him. With that being said, it should be noted that Churchills Bar in Melrose Arch is the kind of place where people go to get their single malt whiskies on. From 12-year-old to 25-year-old Glenlivet, it’s all at Churchills Bar. They also host an array of interesting events throughout the year, so be sure to visit their Facebook page to see what’s coming up.

Southern Sun – Hyde Park

There is a very good reason why whisky is the most strictly regulated spirit in the world. Head to the Southern Sun Hotel in Hyde Park and enjoy their Whisky and Cigar Bar to its fullest extent. Single and blended malts are popular here and go well with the view from the deck. This is also a great spot to unwind after a long day at the office, complete with stunning skyline views of the city.
