I usually only drink gin during election times, but given the current state of affairs I might have to revise this decision. Great news, then, that Musgrave Gin are hosting gin-themed parties all summer long, in the very sexy Ghibli Bar at Radisson Blu Hotel.
This glam urban venue in downtown Cape Town is the perfect place to unwind and get your gin on come Friday evenings! New on the scene, Ghibli Bar offers spectacular city views, chic interiors and superb service by seriously cool staff.
We were invited to the launch party a while ago, and I’ll freely state it was one of the best parties I’ve been to in years. Well, anything with gin is fun, isn’t it, but this was really an extraordinary event and people are STILL talking about it!
Luckily for you, you can join in the fun every Friday from 4-8pm from December 2017 to February 2018. Entry is only R100, and guests are limited to 80 per event.
Your invitation reads:
‘Bask in the rays of the afternoon sunshine whilst taking in the sweeping city views from the Ghibli Bar Pool and Bar, as Musgrave Gin hosts a series of fabulous Friday afternoon sundowner sessions, the Musgrave Gin Pink Summer Soireés.
Remember: Capacity is limited to only 80 guests, and entry is only R100, including a free welcoming cocktail. Cash bar after that, girlfriend.
Your R100 grants you access on Fridays from 4-8pm and includes a complimentary welcome drink. Tickets are available via Quicket or access can be purchased at the door. *Food will be for sale on the day through the hotel, from the Ghibli Bar Menu.
The concept of a soireé encompasses laid-back parties or gatherings in intimate venues for conversation, music and now, gin! With a menu of premium Musgrave Gin cocktails awaiting your arrival, sun loungers, pool access, great food and music, these exclusive afternoons are all about raising a G&T to the magic of a sunset moment shared with friends in a space where you can relax and unwind in style.
Yes, you want to dress up for this one —>
Musgrave Gin’s Summer Soireé cocktail menu is available every day at The Ghibli Bar and showcases some of the trendiest serves of the summer as well as two exciting collaborations with Warwick Wine and Fitch & Leedes.
Enjoy a complimentary “The First Lady Cocktail” on arrival – a combination of Warwick Rosé, Elderflower Syrup, Lime, Mint, Cucumber, Musgrave Pink Gin, dressed with Rose Petals. Or tie one on with Miss Fitch’s Fluff, a pretty-in-pink G&T using Fitch&Leedes Pink Tonic and Musgrave Pink Gin, dressed with a fluff of pink candy floss.
For those planning to linger for a few hours, there will be Musgrave G&T on tap all summer long as well as a full menu of snacks and light meals in The Ghibli Bar. (Tip: the food is seriously good.)

Welcome to the Ghibli Bar at The Radisson! The Ghibli is named after a hot and dry desert wind that blows across the Africa during Summer. Our Desert Rose Gin & Tonic features a thirst quenching blend of green fig and rose flavours, served ice cold, to take the edge off a hot day in the city.
The First Lady
Warwick’s First Lady Dry Rose shaken with Pink Musgrave Gin and garnished with cooling cucumber. This is the most elegant drink of the season and one best enjoyed at the pool. Sunhat mandatory, entourage optional.
The Gintleman “They say beauty is simplicity. We agree implicitly.” Make it your your last round when you aren’t able to say that three times.
We eat first with our eyes, as the saying goes, so why not drink with them too? This head-turning deep red hibiscus and rose Gin & Tonic boasts all the aromas of summer and is as bold as the men and women who drink it!
