The Greenhouse: A Cocktail Oasis in the Heart of Johannesburg

A Cocktail Oasis in the Heart of Johannesburg

Johannesburg, with its vibrant city life, offers countless escapades for the explorer at heart. Nestled among its urban charm, The Greenhouse stands as a sanctuary for those looking to embark on a gastronomic journey, guided by the language of cocktails.


Classic Cocktails At The Greenhouse

Our Classic Cocktails are more than just beverages; they are a portal to the past, invoking memories of simpler times. Dive into the minty delight of our Mojito, where fresh mint leaves muddle with Bacardi Carta Blanca and lime, creating a symphony of flavors. The Cosmo, with its alluring blend of Ciroc, cranberry juice, and a velvety touch of vanilla, transports you to New York’s swanky lounges. And there’s the Moscow Mule, a delightful fusion of Absolut, tangy lime, bitters, and Stoney, reminiscent of evenings spent on patios, toasting to life.

But for the bourbon aficionados, our Old Fashioned Classic and Manhattan await. The former, a straightforward mix of Bulleit Bourbon, syrup, and bitters, is reflective of the golden age of cocktails. The latter marries the robustness of Bulleit Bourbon with the nuanced notes of Antica Formula, topped off with a hint of bitters. Each sip is a hat-tip to the bartenders of yore.


Signature Cocktails At The Greenhouse

Yet, The Greenhouse isn’t just about embracing the past. Our Signature Cocktails are a testament to our forward-thinking ethos. The Hyacinth is an experience in itself, with Bombay Sapphire dancing with Blue Curacao. In Daffodil, the classic Tanqueray is elevated with Limocello and Cinzano Prospritz, crafting a citrusy, fizzy concoction. And then there’s the Azalea – the marriage of the oriental essence of lemongrass syrup with Bulldog Gin, forming a union that’s nothing short of poetic.

If you’re one to cherish a deeper, more nuanced flavor profile, Sweet William and Namaqua Daisy will be your companions for the evening. The former, a blend of Patron Silver’s robustness and the zesty vibrancy of grapefruit juice, tantalizes with every gulp. The latter, a sun-soaked mix of Absolut, mango, and pineapple, feels like a tropical embrace.

Perhaps the highlight of our signature offerings is The Grapest Escape. It’s where the smoky allure of Johnnie Walker Black intertwines with grapefruit’s tangy notes, punctuated by Martini Rosso. Each sip feels like a narrative – a story of craftsmanship, passion, and innovation.

Every evening at The Greenhouse promises a new story, a new memory. Here, we don’t just serve drinks; we craft experiences. So whether you’re celebrating milestones, forging new bonds, or simply toasting to the everyday wonders of life, we’re here to make it memorable.
