If you’re looking for a hip new place in Jozi to grab drinks and a bite with friends, you’re in luck because the clever sausages that brought us The Griffin and Perron have just opened a trendy new tapas and cocktail bar in the heart of Parkwood! With chic, modern decor and Instagram-worthy eats, A Streetbar Named Desire is destined for great things on the Joburg restaurant scene.

The tapas trend is still going strong on the SA foodie scene and the menu at this new Joburg spot does not disappoint when it comes to food. The menu offers a selection of beautifully plated seafood, meat, and vegetarian tapas with a Middle Eastern influence so you can expect loads of flavour in every dish. Try delights like the harissa-marinated sirloin, Iraqi spiced chicken breast, or ginger cake with hibiscus poached pear, rum syrup and crème pâtissière for dessert.

A Streetbar Named DesireOn cold winter days diners can take a seat inside and soak in the comfort and opulence of the interior bathed in shades of rich emerald with cosy wood accents. But it’s the upstairs deck area that is sure to become the most popular spot in summer time, here you can soak up the sun and watch the world go bye as you nibble and sip your way to happiness.

Said to have a cool, unpretentious vibe, A Streetbar Named Desire, is gearing up to be a great choice for after work drinks in Parkwood or well-deserved Saturday sundowners.

Find it at 144 Jan Smuts avenue, Parkwood, Johannesburg. For more information say Hi to A Streetbar Named Desire on Facebook.
