No festive season is complete without a few cocktails. Here’s a list of some cool spots to enjoy sundowners in Port Elizabeth:
Something Good Roadhouse
The Something Good Roadhouse has had a reboot while retaining its surfer-hangout identity. It’s the sort of place you can go to straight from the beach with your family, with Sailor’s Lemonade, made with double Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum with homemade lemonade for the grown-ups and lemon meringue milkshake for the youngsters. Its menu includes wraps, burgers, pizzas and waffles, and it overlooks the city’s excellent Blue Flag beaches.
The White Tiger Bar + Café
The White Tiger Bar + Café on the Humewood Promenade is mostly a restaurant by day and a nightclub after dark, when the emphasis shifts from tapas to youngsters dancing to house music and classic vinyls. Cocktails include the Cosmopolitan with vodka, cranberry juice and triple sec, and Long Island Iced Teas.
The Tabú Bar Lounge
The Tabú Bar Lounge at the Radisson Blu Hotel eschews the beachfront-bohemian vibe from something more sophisticated and mature, with live jazz and a good wine list that includes champagne and cap classique.
