David Cope’s city bowl wine bar, Publik, has set up shop on the popular foodie corner of Kloofnek Road, Tamboerskloof, in place of the recently closed Hallelujah.
After four years of sharing a location on Church Street, the Publik team have made the decision to go solo for a focus on the core offering: unusual and interesting wines alongside good cheeses, charcuterie and snacks.
The wine and service was wonderful for 2/3 of the experience: when we asked to call a cab, we were told there wasn't a phone. The bar was empty.
To be clear, we saw a phone in use prior to asking.

Really enjoyed my evening here. It feels hip, but inclusive rather than exclusive. The pickles served with the meat platter were particularly great.
