Freshly made Mojito in hand, tie undone, sitting back as the sun sets over our beautiful Bloemfontein, you can feel the base drums beating deep through your soul.
I arrive an hour early to do some work and then to meet up with friends I haven’t seen for months, or sometimes, years. It’s a little bit of Europe in Bloem. A little bit of funk.
A journey of discovering new and unusual tastes and flavours awaits you at the award winning Coco C Restaurant & Chocolatier.
At Avanti you can do some Bloem-people watching at the downstairs area or get a view over the water in the seating area upstairs. Regardless, come meet with friends, sip a cocktail and enjoy good Italian food.
This small bar and restaurant has a bit of a Manhattan cocktail bar feel to it. The food is a fusion of Asian and Indian flavours. Try the wok-fried mussels in a spicy Thai peanut sauce or the beef teriyaki.
