#BoardWalkEmpire and Glamour at HQ Restaurant

The hit series conjures up thoughts of the sophisticated days of yesteryear, where prohibition, bootlegging, speak-easies and all-night dancing were the order of the day. Set in the iconic Heritage Square on old cobbles in the heart of the Cape Town CBD, HQ offers the perfect setting for a throwback Thursday seeped in old-fashioned style.

Some of the highlights that can be enjoyed every Thursday include the following:

* Top local music acts and DJs on the decks, with deep techno and deep house seeing you through to the early hours
* Half price taps and bar snacks throughout the night, with tantalising menu choice such as cubes of sirloin with Café de Paris butter, crumbed prawns, beer-battered fish goujons
* Classic sirloin, thin-cut fries and salad at the restaurant for those wanting a full course dinner
* Inventive craft cocktails that infuse fresh seasonal ingredients and modern flavours

HQ is situated at 100 Shortmarket Street on Heritage Square in the City Centre, and bookings can be made via email ([email protected]) or phone on +27 (0)21 424 6373. Visit to see menus and learn more about opening hours and events.
