The Hidden Cellar
The Hidden Cellar is a legend in its own right, with some of the best live music in Cape Town. Tucked into the loft space above De Akker Stellenbosch’s oldest licensed pub, where generations of students have gathered for beer, mellow vibes and long-winded conversations. The creaky wooden boards have seen some of the country’s top musicians break into the limelight under the watchful gaze of students who tread the fine tightrope of being both artfully intellectual and finger-on-the-pulse cool. There’s a full bar, a little stage, and now even a sound system to match the quality of the performances. There’s a good chance that the bands playing here will be Afrikaans, but that shouldn’t prevent you from having a good time; the locals love to wax lyrical about the ins and outs of the scene and will gladly share their knowledge, opinions and, often, a personal introduction to the ‘star’ on stage.
