HQ Friday Feels: Dinner and Dancing on Heritage Square
Chill jazzy beats while you enjoy dinner, then the dance floor opens at 9pm till late
Chill saxophone jazz while you enjoy your legendary HQ steak, salad and chips or tapas. And then they clear the lounge and turn HQ's signature DJs loose from 9pm till late.
HQ’s Friday Feels is the perfect dinner and dancing combo spot to start your weekend off right.
HQ is all about simplicity and sophistication. Expect fresh and seasonal tapas: from triple-cooked pork belly with apple crème fraiche to crackling and jus or free-range chicken wings with smoked yoghurt, tomato pesto and blue cheese.
Or tuck into their famous steak, salad and chips: grain-fed 250g sirloin steak topped with Café de Paris butter sauce and accompanied with skinny fries and fresh and crunchy salad. Just the kind of good stuff you’ve come to expect from HQ restaurant.
EURO EATERY ATMOSPHERE
HQ is a warm-blooded Capetonian eatery on the city’s historic Heritage Square. But it could just as easily have been an on-trend eatery in the heart of Milan, Prague or Monaco. Leather couches, a crackling fire, closely-set tables and an open-plan kitchen build the baseline for the effortlessly elegant ambience. The lounge-style music, balloon lighting and the simplistic menu create a cosmopolitan restaurant for everyone to enjoy.
There’s also a courtyard and, on Friday nights, the chill jazzy sounds of @KiriKutha set the mood for your dinner. And then, at 9pm the whole venue turns into a party.
GET TO THE DANCE FLOOR
At 9pm, they remove all the furniture from the downstairs lounge area and resident @DJDinoLive opens the dance floor. The cocktails start to flow – have you tried the Signal Hill Sunset yet? And the party continues into the small hours of Saturday morning.
Sounds like the perfect start to your weekend. See you at HQ Friday Feels.
