I popped into the awesome Milk Bar last week for a casual Friday night drink and ended up leaving a few hours (and a few more drinks) later – what a cool place!! I think the logo pretty much sums it up ‘It’s African, Get In’ – the decor is distinctly African (thanks to its Amatuli connection) and from the moment I stepped foot in Milk Bar, I felt like I had been transported to a beach bar in Mozambique, or perhaps Lake Malawi – or even one in Gabon (I would imagine).

From old signs to woven baskets, painted steel hadedas, and wooden dhows, Milk Bar transports you on a whirlwind tour of the continent, and isn’t it just eclectically gorgeous? It is located in the entrance to Amatuli (as well as Sir Jame Vd Merwe and Katy’s Palace) in Kramerville so it is definitely worth popping in for a drink after your next visit to the area.

We ordered a fantastic African flatbread to go with our Malawian Shandys (be warned these are delicious and very more-ish) and settled in for lazy sundowners in a cozy spot by the fire. I’ve been told that Milk Bar does fantastic breakfasts and lunches too, so next time I’ll have to visit during daylight hours, especially now that their September special is one of my best – a frozen chai latte. MMMM.
