Located beneath London's largest Living Wall, recently replanted with more than 6,000 herbaceous plants to breathe life into our surroundings, bbar is a vibrant cocktail bar and restaurant in the heart of Victoria.
Our new menu plays homage to our heritage, with dishes that beautifully reflect the flavours of South Africa with a playful twist, from Boerewors Eggs Benedict with chilli chutney biltong to The Gatsby Sub, a Western Cape pulled BBQ short rib of beef.
Alongside this exceptional new menu, we have live mix sessions and DJ sets throughout the week, as well as contemporary signature cocktails created by our resident mixologists.
"Opened in 2002, The Twelve Apostles has undergone a number of incarnations, from a private home, to advertising agency, to hotel. My own journey with Red Carnation began in 2001 in London and culminated in my appointment as General Manager at The Twelve Apostles in 2014.
I am proud to have witnessed the growth and achievements of our team and I’m equally proud of the role the hotel plays in the local community. Our location in the environs of a national park demands diligent sustainability practices. We have impressive water-saving initiatives, a system for the management of waste and energy consumption, and have eliminated single-use plastics from our operations.
For as long as I’ve worked at The 12A, it never ceases to delight me. Our hotel is close enough to Cape Town but far enough away from the ‘madding crowd’ to make your visit seem like a retreat. The V&A Waterfront, Camps Bay beaches, the historic Constantia Wine Route and Hout Bay are all within easy reach.
Our location is exceptional - wedged between mountain and sea – our design is incredible, and our guest experiences are so diverse. Experiences range from exhilarating helicopter flights and mountain walks, to High Tea by the Sea or a treatment in an outdoor mountain spa gazebo. Our views of the Atlantic Ocean are unequalled anywhere else in the city.
We look forward to welcoming you to our little slice of paradise very soon."
- Michael Nel, General Manager
