Simonsig opens new bubbly and oyster bar in Stellenbosch

A bar serving oysters, champagne and méthode cap classique has opened at De Warenmarkt in Stellenbosch.

The Kaapse Vonkel MCC and Oyster Bar is a collaboration between De Warenmarkt, Simonsig and the Mussel Monger, and is a first for the Winelands Town. The new addition promises to add a touch of opulence to the locale, with the design of the new bar based on similar offerings in Europe and intended to seat 28 people around a solid oak oval bar.

The bubbly on offer is exclusively Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel, South Africa’s first méthode cap classique made in the style of champagne, as well as French Billecart-Salmon champagne. There will also be a Stellenbosch-only wine list for those who are looking for something other than bubbles.
