Cape Town Nightlife: Madame Zingara’s Theatre of dreams.
In a rather unusual location below the highway in the foreshore, is a antique tent housing the relocated and renamed Madame Zingara’s Tent/Theatre of Dreams.
The original restaurant in Bree Street burnt down in Sept ’06, and the insurance payout wasn’t enough to reopen so negotiations then started with the Klessen family Belgium who own a rather rare 1920’s dinner and dance hall tent. “Constructed of wood, mirrors, canvas, leaded glass and detailed in velvet and brocade” The family have toured with this tent for four generations.
Apparently the tent is on loan for only a few short months, so make the most of it while it’s here.
The food is excellent and highly inventive, you can take a look at the menu here.
