SquareMeal Review of
BBar & Restaurant
Kitted out with leopard-skin prints, elephant carvings & photographs of big game, BB is a strange & mysterious beast on the plains of the Victoria bar scene. Spread over two floors with a
brace of bars & a dining room, it offers a please-all run through morning coffee & light lunches to cocktails & small bites at night via an extensive all-day menu that continues the
safari theme – think boerewors sausages or springbok fillet with sweet-potato purée alongside steaks & pasta. South Africa plays its part on the style-driven wine list, but it’s the 60-strong
contingent of cocktails that really pull in the party animals as the sun sets over the concrete savannah. Signature mixes include Protea’s nectar made with apricot-infused gin, rooibos syrup,
lemon, Cape gooseberry & Champagne.
