Chef Ryan Cole to open new beach club in Cape Town

The Mother City will welcome a new addition to its bustling restaurant and bar scene with the opening of Cabo Beach Club.

The genius behind the new concept is well-known local chef Ryan Cole. The launch of Cabo Beach Club marks the second solo project for the talented chef. Located in the pristine, illustrious docks of the V&A Waterfront, the new spot will be opening its doors just in time for the festive summer season.

In an exclusive interview with Eat Out, Chef Ryan Cole explains that the vibrant and bustling energy of the Mother City inspired him to create Cabo Beach Club.

“Cape Town has always deserved to be recognised at an international level. The venue for Cabo Beach Club is a hidden gem, and to be taking over a venue in such an iconic location to bring guests beautiful food with locally sourced ingredients in a brand-new way is something special for both myself and the guests.”

The new spot will be home to an in-house restaurant, Violet, with its menu themed to reflect an up-market feel and approach offering a menu tailored around sharing small plates.

In addition, Cabo Beach Club will also offer a general menu themed to more relaxed dishes such as pizza, salads, burgers and seafood. With an additional “Caviar on the Deck” menu featuring oysters, sushi, caviar and MCC, guests can aptly celebrate the start of summer at Cabo Beach Club.

“Cabo Beach Club is a first of its kind for Cape Town. It’s a European-style beach club with two restaurants and multiple areas on offer to guests. Spend the day lounging by the pool, join us for lunch or dinner, or have Champagne and oysters at Caviar on the Deck, overlooking the beach and the beautiful ocean view,” adds Chef Ryan.

The venue will also be home to a pool where guests can kick back and relax with a refreshing cocktail in hand.

Chef Ryan shares that this is not the last of the projects he hopes to implement in the industry.

“I do hope to launch another couple of projects, but I can’t reveal too much. I will say one of the projects will be a franchise to include fine wines as one of the staples. After naming my first two establishments after a vegetable and then a flower, the third one will be named after a tree.”

Cabo Beach aims to offer a truly chic beach-style venue setting from the décor to the food.

“Cabo Beach Club will have a sophisticated, edgy and sexy look and feel, with attention to detail on the intricate elements, from the decor, to the food, and everything in between,” says Chef Ryan Cole.
