The Keyhole is Kalk Bay’s brand new concept cocktail bar and lounge. The bar is tucked inside the beautiful Sonnekus Beach House and transports visitors to a different era altogether with private society club vibes.
The secret spot boasts a sophisticated retro feel in mind with moody dimmed lighting, rich velvet furnishings, and an air of subtle mystery of a bygone era. It is a playful scavenger hunt for grown-ups as entry to the bar is only granted on a self-guided scavenger hunt that makes for a fantastic activity to do with friends, family, colleagues, or even on a first date.
Guests get to find one of the ten hidden keys waiting to be discovered around the venue. The keys are hidden away in unexpected spots at the venue, perhaps behind a bookshelf or inside a vintage suitcase. Further clues can be found on the bar's Instagram page.
Once a guest has found a key, they present it to one of the bar’s Key Masters and a menu that unlocks the door to a table is handed over.
There’s a great selection of delicious food on offer at The Keyhole including light meals like patatas bravas, pesto gnocchi, or pizza with a number of toppings to choose from.
The drinks menu reflects a mix of signature cocktails, spirits, wine, and some of the best local and international gins.
The Keyhole also offers loyal visitors a membership programme that involves surprise offers, exclusive events, personalised service from the team of mixologists and Key Masters, and other VIP benefits.
