Friday Night DJ and Dancing at HQ Restaurant

#AfterDark with DJ Rene: start the weekend with a steak dinner, stylish cocktails and suave tunes by The Frenchman

You’ll be saying thank goodness it’s Friday when you attend the stylish Headquarters’ weekly dance party. HQ pushes back the furniture and opens up a dancefloor for patrons to shimmy and shake to uptempo beats spun by DJ René ‘The Frenchman’ Tanguy and friends every Friday night in Cape Town.

The trendy Heritage Square hang out invites diners to let their hair down at its weekly #AfterDark party, especially enticing those looking for a chic spot to enjoy a colourful cocktail, ice cold craft beer or glass of impeccable wine. For starters, the Parisian-inspired bar and its top-notch mixologists have remastered their, already, impressive selection of cocktails. Locals can look forward to eccentric creations like Opulence; a cocktail comprising of Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, served with honey, vanilla and plum bitters - described as “decadence in a glass.” Or the Pink G&T Martini; the lovechild of two classic cocktails.

With plates of tantalising tapas being served around you, you’ll find it difficult to resist the urge to sample some nosh too. Treat yourself to the restaurant's renowned sirloin steak meal, accompanied by fries and a house salad, or indulge in Triple Cooked Pork Belly Cubes with bourbon glaze, bacon soil and apple creme fraiche – 100% as delicious as the eatery’s signature main meal.

Dance off the decadent meal during DJ René’s sets and usher in the weekend with house and swing music.

In short, the handsome cosmopolitan venue is THE place to party in Cape Town if you’re looking for a swanky, modern middle ground between a restaurant and a club. With racy, red leather seating, balloon-style lighting and exposed brick walls, HQ flaunts a sexy urban elegance and holds fast to its status as one of the city’s hottest date night spots and steamiest late night bars.So, if you’re looking to get down, dance the night away at this swanky city centre steakhouse.

Do note: There is no cover charge for the performance, but booking is essential if you want to sit down for dinner. Reservations can be made by calling +27 (0)21 424 6373.
