"They say that a man can sit in The Strangers Club of La Paz, 12 000 feet above sea level, and meet men from every sea."
THE TRAVEL BOOK CLUB
The Strangers Club has been inspired by a club that existed in the early 1900’s in La Paz and Panama. It was a space where traders and explorers heading to and from Central and South America could gather, exchange stories and relive memories. We have created a home for sharing stories, a collection of strange things and an appreciation for detail. We share our home with Out of this World who, through their artworks, communicate a history of appreciation and respect for African culture and its artefacts. The Strangers Club allows for gathering, sharing and meeting.
Our tranquil space is complemented with a menu just as easy on the eyes. The Strangers Club works closely with local coffee roaster Matthew Grobler, bringing you a well crafted and easy drinking blend. Accompanied by breakfasts, gourmet sandwiches, salads, a selection of freshly pressed juices, smoothies and treats; you are sure to have all of your foodie needs met!
Owned by young entrepreneur Emma Vith, The Strangers Club and Out of this World merge contemporary Cape Town with authentic Africa.
