Happy 6 months Cape Town's first Gastropub!

Written by lorenzo on November 13, 2013

We’re nearing the 6 month mark of our existence. So we thought it apt to keep our loyal patrons in the loop (bree) about what it is we’ve achieved and what it is we’d like to achieve.


If you’ve frequented Cape Town’s first gastropub on a regular basis over the last half-a-dozen months you would have experienced many a nights of delicious food, dancing, drinks specials and an overall dining extravaganza!  We admit, there have been some teething issues along the way, but such is the path to perfection. We have learnt from those mistakes and feel as if we have exited the ‘honeymoon’ phase with aplomb and can hold our heads high. So let’s take a moment to raise our glasses and salute the journey!


As we approach the festive season, we are hard at work to bring you both culinary and drink delights. Lorenzo and the team are furiously devising new menu additions to keep your taste buds enthralled, while behind the bar an offering of summer cocktails are being concocted to satisfy your craving. In the pipeline are plans for a beer and wine society, day time function oppotunities and drinks specials to literally and figuratively make your head spin.


We’ve also introduced a pub quiz night! Those of you who attended the first one will agree it was a resounding success. So much so, we have decided to continue the trend every second Wednesday. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for details.


One thing we love doing and are getting pretty damn good at, is hosting events at The Odyssey. Since opening we’ve been lucky enough to host birthday and engagement parties, book launches, staff functions, reunions and farewells, all receiving some flattering praise. One guest even went as far to say, “My best function experience in Cape Town to date.” So if you’re looking for a venue to host your birthday, boxing weigh in or bachelor party, we’re the place to do it. No matter the size, we’ve got the food and drink offerings to keep you stoked while you party the night away.


We also offer our upstairs area as a day time conference venue. Just give us a call and we’ll let you know exactly how we can accommodate you and your guests.


So in closing, well done to us for reaching the 6 month mark and well done to YOU  for being apart of the journey so far. Without your input and support none of this would be possible! Here’s to your continued support and our ongoing quest to become the premier gastropub in Cape Town.


For bookings and function enquiries, please don’t hesitate to give us on call or send us an email on 021 422 4084 or matt@theodyssey.co.za.


Nostrovia, Prost, Saluté and Cheers!


The Odyssey Team!
