Publik is a neighbourhood wine bar with a focus on the more unusual and interesting wines available. We serve wines made from sustainably farmed vineyards and made with minimal intervention in the cellar.

The bar is the place to discover quality, lesser-known wines served by a knowledgeable team. Our list changes regularly to ensure you can enjoy something new each time you visit.


We don’t have a phone because we’d rather be talking to our guests about wine. For events or enquiries, please email

PLEASE NOTE– our online store operates from a separate location to the wine bar. Orders are for delivery or collection at our warehouse.

Taxi’s. We recommend them. In fact, we’ll happily call them for you at any time. Just ask at the bar. Or get uber.

Quote. Something useful if you arrive home drunk and need to explain as to why.
 “We are still heartily of the opinion that decent libation supports as many million lives as it threatens; donates pleasure and sparkle to more lives than it shadows; inspires more brilliance in the world of art, music, letters, and common ordinary intelligent conversation, than it dims.” 
— Charles Henry Baker, Jr.


11D Kloofnek Road, Tamboerskloof, Cape Town, 8000.


The bar is open Monday – Friday, 4pm – late. Saturday, 12pm – 6pm.


Publik Wine Bar doesn’t take reservations.
