Kitchener's Carvery Bar: a trip back in time


The perfect place for a glass in an authentic setting with a cool ambiance.

After a long day, here at Kitchener's you can enjoy homemade cocktails with music piped in the background. This bar has been open on the first floor of a two-story Dutch house for slightly more than a century.

With period decor, the place is where the trendy youth of Johannesburg meet up and a must if you're looking for a quirky bar open until all hours of the night. Located in the Milner Hotel in the heart of downtown Johannesburg, Kitchener's has cotton tapestries, embossed tin ceilings, and mosaic floors that make the bar feel like a time capsule. Known for its refreshing eclecticism, it enjoys a musical reputation that lives up to its impressive history. You can enjoy cocktails in the bar or dance to live tunes many nights.

If you're lucky, you may get to see an improvised session by a well-known artist come to ‘slum it up', away from prying eyes.
