Stanley Beer Yard has reopened … with an edgier look and feel!

June 21, 2018, Author: Candice May

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!
