The Blue Room at Grub & Vine is our live music and cocktail lounge that pays homage to the soulful sounds of jazz and the blues. A collaborative venture between Grub & Vine's Chef Patron Matt Manning and well-known jazz artist Buddy Wells, the lounge also sports a state-of-the-art recording studio, where you'll catch musicians in action from time to time.

Located on the ground floor of 103 Bree Street, the Blue Room features a bespoke cocktail menu - with delicious concoctions such as the 'Ella Fizzgerald' (gin, lime, rhubarb, fennel and Brut MCC) and 'Muddy Waters' (Bourbon, dry sherry, vanilla maple and naartjie) - as well as a delectable selection of small plates for guests to nibble on.

The Blue Room is open for lunch from Monday - Friday, brunch on Saturdays and tapas and cocktails at night, while live performances from some of the country's top jazz, soul and blues artists will be a regular evening occurrence.

    We ordered a cheese platter and was sooooooo disappointed with the literally shavings of cheese one piece of prosciutto sliced into 3 pieces for R190! Really now? Not value for money. Maybe you cater for tourists only. All the locals complaint about the portain size and prices. I don't mind spending money on good food, but your prices are ridiculous for the portion sizes. The ambiance and the band were fabulous.

    Food came out at different times so we didn’t eat together and service was a little slow and disjointed but altogether a lovely night out.

    We had a great time. My only criticism is that I feel the food is overpriced. We ordered a cheese platter which I felt was not very generous for the price we paid, more cheese and pickle would have created a better impression. My friends ordered from the set menu and enjoyed it, although felt that the portions could have been more generous.
