Their hidden speakeasy tucked discreetly above a historic warehouse on Cape Town’s Shortmarket Street.
As the name suggests, Outrage of Modesty is designed to unsettle the norm, force you to pause, to rethink cocktails. It'll divide, separate, opinionate.
Outrage of Modesty is all about attention to detail, from the decor to the product. From the moment you are escorted off Shortmarket street onto the stairs leading up to OoM you are intrigued. As you reach the top and enter you are impressed with the excellence of simplicity. A larger than life moment in time with a subtle modern twist catches ones full attention, like looking at the Mona Lisa for the first time. In a matter of moments your sense of sight and smell are tantalized leaving one comfortable and excited that this is the beginning of a great evening.
The service is on par with excellence, a warm friendly and very informative host greets you. Like an passionate science professor your host explains in fine detail the process of each cocktail, leaving one enthused.
It would be difficult to recommend one or two cocktails as there is a perfect cocktail for each individual taste. Outrage of Modesty has taken the art of cocktail making to a whole new level. I would be bold as to say that they have gone into the science of cocktail making.
My recommendation of OoM falls under the heading of MAGICALLY UNFORGETTABLE....
