Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODDRINKING -

Bar: Le Roi Beach Bar Ad­dress: 104 The Prom­e­nade, Vic­to­ria Road, Camps Bay Con­tact: 021 437 1791 Twit­ter: @LeRoiBeachBar Cock­tail: Napoleon Crush Price: R45 In­gre­di­ents: Fresh wa­ter­melon, fresh lime, cit­rus-flavoured vodka FEEL like bit­ing into fresh wa­ter­melon soaked in vodka this sum­mer? The Napoleon Crush at Le Roi Beach Bar gives you the op­por­tu­nity to sip a cock­tail with a chunk of melon flesh in it while tak­ing in a Camps Bay sun­set at one of the sum­mer’s new spots.

Le Roi owner Dale Parker makes the drink by first mud­dling fresh wa­ter­melon with lime in an In­ver­ness rocks glass. The vodka is added and the drink is then shaken with a cock­tail mixer and capped with crushed ice. It’s gar­nished with a wedge of wa­ter­melon.

If you feel like more wa­ter­melon, the bar some­times leaves some for cus­tomers on the counter to cut and en­joy as they please.

The bar opened last week and is de­scribed by Parker as hav­ing a “retro-slick” theme. Hang­ing bub­ble chairs com­plete this look and make for fun seat­ing.

Their cock­tail and food menus are be­ing launched this weekend. Parker says they will have a spe­cial on oys­ters.

The en­tire bar is non-smok­ing and wifi is free.

They plan on hav­ing DJs ev­ery night play­ing house mu­sic.

Le Roi Beach Bar will be open from Tues­days to Satur­days, from 4pm to 2am. – WendylMartin
