#HighburyHearsYou – we at Cape Town Etc are passionate about getting local restaurants back and booming in business. As part of our #HighburyHearsYou initiative, we’re dishing out the deets on some incredible restaurants in and around town.
Nothing goes together quite like a great meal, cold beer, and a live musical performance. If this sounds like the ideal way to spend your evening, then Open Sesame is the perfect place for you. Based in the heart of Cape Town, Open Sesame is an honest, laid-back bar where you can expect a classic rock playlist, live music, great service and a friendly atmosphere.

The rock and roll themed venue plays hand-picked rock music every minute that they’re open, but more importantly, also acts as a platform for young and upcoming artists to perform and showcase their talent.
Open Sesame also has a number of events throughout the, so you’ll always have something to look forward to. These include:
-‘Tasty Tuesday food specials’, where you can get great meals like two pizzas or two burgers for the price of one!
-Unknown Legend night every Wednesday, during which three up-and-coming artists take to the stage to perform live music for about 40 – 45 minutes each. The evening is hosted by Sit The Folk Down music.
-‘Rock & Roll music quiz night’ which takes place every Thursday, hosted by Morne Wessels, who also presents weekly quizzes at venues like Armchair Theatre and JC’s Brasserie.
-Live music nights every Friday and Saturday, which first started with only solo acoustic acts, but from April onwards will also include duo and trio acts.
All of the events are free with no charge at the door.
Open Sesame also offers some of the most delicious meals you’re likely to find in Cape Town. These include dishes like the ‘AL CAPONE’ pizza, ‘PABLO ESCOBAR’ chicken fillet with bacon bits, and the ‘JOHN GOTTI’ pizza with chorizo, black olives, red peppers, mushrooms, and grated mozzerella, just to name a few.
