Mzoli’s Place, also known as Mzoli’s Butchery, Mzoli’s Palace, Mzoli’s Meat, or just longingly referred to as “Mzoli’s, is butchery/restaurant in Gugulethu, a township on the outskirts of Cape Town. Since it opened in early 2003 as a small shop selling meat out of a garage, Mzoli’s has fast become known as a popular gathering spot for all race, culture, and creed.
Mzoli’s offers an authentically South African experience. Visitors can look forward to live entertainment, deep house and kwaito music, traditional braai meat, and an exciting night of table dancing and getting to know your fellow South Africans. Mzoli’s is not just a butchery, take away spot, or restaurant – it is much more than that and has to be experienced to be understood. It is a no-frills hangout spot with plastic tables and chairs, no waiters, knives, or forks, and no need for table manners – just good food, drinks, and a lekker time! And it’s not only locals who seek the excitement of Mzoli’s every night of the week, for both South African and international celebrities have been spotted here too!
