EB Social Kitchen and Bar

  Hyde Park Corner, cnr Jan Smuts Ave and William Nicol Dr, Hyde Park ,   Sandton          +27 11 268 6039     06 Dec 2018
created 10 Dec 2015
A show-stopping space that includes a bookstore, coffee house, bar and restaurant with expansive views across the treed suburbs, bringing together two of life’s greatest comforts - books and food. The books flow into the restaurant and bar, a lively semi-industrial space clawed back from the Hyde Park Corner shopping centre’s parking lot. The impressive interiors are inviting with Moroccan tiles and parquet, mismatched furniture pieces and a luxury lounge, all put together with a meticulous attention to detail. The regularly changing menu is sophisticated but utterly comforting. 

A brass-and-tile bar comes with books scattered across it for your reading pleasure and a view of the urban forest of the northern suburbs, while a literary-inspired cocktail menu offers drinks such as The Catcher in the Rye (Bulleit Bourbon, mint, apple and cinnamon) and Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. There are two ways to choose, according to your favourite spirits or your favourite authors. New creations continue to be added to the menu but the long and summery The Secret Garden (Tanqueray Ten, rose, chamomile and lemon) remains a staple. The wine list, carefully chosen with the expert help of Carrie Adams of Norman Goodfellows Wine and Spirits Merchants, is also excellent.
