Bombay Bicycle Club BBC

The Bombay Bicycle Club (BBC)

Welcome to The new and improved Bombay Bicycle Club (BBC). This famous landmark on one of Cape Town’s busiest intersections just got a new lease on life. Known for being a bit wacky and ‘over the top’ venue the new interior is in keeping with this design approach, inspired by chaotic, colourful Bombay and bicycles in general. All shapes and sizes. It pays homage to owning a bicycle, riding one and aspiring to own one. The spaces celebrate happiness, humor and finding one’s balance in life and society. Non trendy paint colours and a busy mix of fabrics deliberately clash but in a fun and quirky way. If you wish to join the club, you are invited, basically.

Café Manhattan

This eatery and bar in the heart of De Waterkant, Cape Town, received a much needed facelift. Known as one of Cape Town’s oldest gay institutions, the new interior celebrates the colourful lives of the LGBT Community worldwide. Inspired by sexy Texas, bold Mexico and off course, wild Africa. The spaces are now lighter, brighter and so much more fun. It oozes a welcoming warmth and a special positive energy.

Transforming Club Extravaganza into The Empire Lounge, a seductive escape into a naughty world of old world charm and mischief. The brief was met by creating warmer intimate spaces through layers of rich colours and textures
