I headed to Sir James van der Merwe on a Wednesday a couple weeks ago to celebrate the end of one job and the start of another. I had heard so much about this bar located in Kramerville that it seemed the perfect spot to celebrate.
I gathered together a few friends and we met up at Sir James after work. The bar is situated below Katy’s Palace Bar and has the same eclectic style and furnishings – tables with mismatched chairs, old benches, there is even an old-school motorcycle displayed on one of the walls. Wednesday nights are their “open nights” where they have a cash bar and a select menu available. Not being someone to go out for a night on the town on a school night, I was taken aback by the amount of people that were there. It wasn’t after payday. It wasn’t a special kind of day. Yet there were so many patrons which allowed me to indulge in my favourite sport of People Watching.
I left around 9pm and was utterly gobsmacked to see some people getting onto the bar to dance. I never expected such a party to take place on a school night! I’ll definitely be going back every now and then for some after work drinks and snacks.
This was one of the things added to my list to do this year. See what else I’ve got up to or what I plan to get up to over here!
