Island Bar at Southern Sun Hyde Park Hotel

  Southern Sun Hyde Park Hotel, 1st Rd, Hyde Park ,   Sandton          +27 11 341 8080     more than a year ago

Join Joburg's most selfie-loving set at Southern Sun Hyde Park Hotel's Island Bar atop one of the city's most luxury shopping malls, Hyde Park Corner. After a hard-day's designer label shopping, a new do from carlton hair and a quick manicure or grooming at the beauty salon, this is the bar that local celebrities and socialites love to drop by to unwind over cocktails and champagne. The views across the leafy northern suburbs stretch for miles and a lounger at the pool deck is the most coveted location from which to enjoy the sunset.

Drinks on the menu include craft beers, wines, cocktails, gins with mixers and of course Champagne. These are accompanied by a tapas and an la carte menu designed by Executive Chef Grant van der Riet who has adapted the food menu to deliver a  wide selection of dishes to go with cocktail hour. Made for sharing, and snacking, Southern Sun Hyde Park Hotel's Island Bar tapas menu caters to just about every conscious food taste (vegetarian, carb-clever and carnivorous options abound) and also includes staples such as burgers, salads, and enticing desserts such as a devilish chocolate fondant with berries, and pumpkin fritters.

On the tapas menu you'll find signature items that include the Buttermilk chicken burger, oxtail steam buns with pulled oxtail stuffed in a steamed bun and topped with apple sambal, and ever-popular light and crispy fried tortilla chips served with salsa, sour cream cheese and guacamole. Vegetarians will enjoy the crispy zucchini fries, sticky sesame cauliflower bites, crumbed mushrooms with garlic aioli and Jalapeno cheese poppers, just to name a few dishes. 

Just remember to dab the corners of your mouth, reapply any makeup after snacking or wear a winning smile as Instagram feeds get filled from this location.
