Set in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD, Castellos Jazz Bistro invites you to indulge your senses with a combination of amazing food, wine and live Jazz performances!
Castellos Jazz Bistro offers guests a wide variety of world class jazz complemented by tasty food, in an intimate room
with great sight lines and sound. Owner Vaughn Fransch, who is a professional jazz trumpeter, pharmacist and advocate (member of the Cape Bar), wanted to create an intimate venue for top local and international musicians. This vision was inspired by Vaughn’s travels abroad – visiting the Village Vanguard and Blue Note in NY and Ronnie Scotts in London – to create a listening venue in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD.
Castellos is a bustling coffee shop from 07h00 Monday to Friday, in the legal hub of the city. The cream of the legal world – advocates, attorneys and judges – are the predominant patrons until the courts close, after which the legal fraternity relax and watch a bit of sport – English soccer and South African Rugby, until 20h00 when jazz fever fills the historical Velocity building in Keerom Street.
Located in the heart of the Mother City, Castellos Jazz Bistro is set to become one of the go-to places for its cuisine and jazz performances. Director and Award-winning International Executive Chef Siven Pillay has created a wonderfully tantalizing menu to suit all tastes.
