Hello Joburgers, those of you who are VSOP drinkers will be excited to know that…
Hello Joburgers, if you loved Stanley Beer Yard before, you’re going to love it even more now! The well-loved Joburg institution has just reopened after a serious revamp under the new name Calexico.
So what exactly does Calexico mean? It’s actually a border city in California – a portmanteau of the words California and Mexico, and a perfect intermingling of food, music and dance. There’s also a band called Calexico whose music style, just like the city, is a blend of southern Californian and Mexican inspired sounds.
Calexico stays true to the nature of Stanley Beer Year but at the same time boasts a shinier, edgier look and feel. On the menu, designed by chef and food stylist Robyn Timson-Moss, you can expect an eclectic mix of Americana-style food, with décor and music inside to match. We can’t wait to tuck into the artichoke nachos, hot brisket and racks of ribs!
