We are absolutely stoked to announce the beautiful venue that will be hosting Up Close and Personal. The Commons is a picturesque, intimate establishment that overlooks the spectacular Muizenberg beachfront.
They have cultivated an ethos based on facilitating inclusivity and welcoming cultural and social diversity. Their restaurant serves a delicious selection of vegan and vegetarian cuisine.
This venue also serves as a vibrant hub showcasing some of the best local music and artistic talent around. They also host a fantastic selection of thought-provoking panel discussions, inspiring poetry evenings, and informative documentary screenings.
The Commons takes pride in being more than just a café, bar, and vegan and vegetarian restaurant. They provide a gathering place for the community, sourcing local products and serving as an event center and cultural hub.
“The Commons is a poem that is yet to be written. A story that evolves with the breaking of each day, peoples from all walks of life come in to engage and share with others, their experience of this multi-layered place.”
The Commons are dedicated to preserving and nurturing the cultural practices that contribute to the community’s growth. They carefully curate and provide a space for a diverse range of events. Additionally, they offer a co-working environment with high-speed WIFI for those seeking a productive workspace. The gallery space showcases the work of talented local artists, and their wellness center provides classes focused on self-care and mindfulness practices.
We hope you’ll be there to join us next Saturday for an evening filled with beautiful music, an eclectic market and great company. We are sure this combination of an incredible venue and amazingly talented artists and bands will make for a night you won’t forget.
So don’t miss out and get your tickets while they’re still available
