Bar: Trinity Lounge Address: 15 Bennett Street Contact: 021 418 0624 Cocktail: Chocolate martini Price: R40 Twitter: @Trinity Cape Town Ingredients: One shot of Frangelico, a shot of vodka, milk and chocolate syrup. IF CHOCOLATE be the food of love, why not drink it too? Trinity barman Felly Yumba says he shakes all the ingredients together for the chocolate martini and then strains it. It is then garnished with more chocolate syrup.
I could taste a lot of vodka, but this was well balanced with a smooth chocolate taste.
“It’s a popular drink with ladies after they eat,” says Yumba.
Trinity has an industrial feel to it with facebrick walls and a metal staircase leading to loft levels, and is located in an industrial looking part of Green Point. It hosts live music events including big band shows, open mic nights and club nights on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
There is a rooftop garden where you can smoke; you can also smoke in their VIP area.
Drinks are sold from noon to midnight and later on club nights.
It’s an elegant and quiet spot for a daytime drink and a great party spot on club nights.
Selected cocktails are half price from 4pm to 7pm. – Wendylmartin
