The Union Bar has managed to reinvent itself on numerous occasions and now its back with a brand new logo, which heralds the beginning of a new era in pop-up entertainment, launching with Black Bottle blended Scotch whisky – a whisky that goes beyond the ordinary. This black and gold extravaganza will be open to the public on Thursday to Saturday nights, 18:30 to late, from March 11 to June 11. The venue is the newly converted Norman Goodfellows Dispatch Warehouse, on the corner of Chaplin and Oxford roads, in Illovo, Jozi and has been home to many benders for the mates and I. Be on the look-out for more information by visiting, and/or


This is not just any bar. Think black. Think gold. Think sophistication, style and delicious cocktails. From the décor to the specially prepared artisanal menu presented in black and gold, to the golden girl dancing in her gilded cage – the stage is set for an experience unlike any other.


Case in point: The Union Bar with Black Bottle blended Scotch whisky. With a bottle of pure blackness, a distinctive golden label and a blend of the finest Scottish whisky true to the original blend developed by the Graham brothers in Aberdeen (Scotland) way back in 1879, Black Bottle whisky is enjoyed around the world by those with the confidence to look beyond the everyday.


With speciality cocktails sharing the spotlight with ground-breaking events featuring South Africa’s finest musical talent, comedy nights, shows and whisky pairings, there will be something new happening nearly every week. To keep up to date with the schedule, and to make a reservation, please visit, and/or

Girls, get your little black dress. Boys, don your blazer or just dress it up with some gold, and come experience an unprecedented collaboration worth more than gold!
