Okha Ellerman House 013_mn_b.jpeg


Here time is irrelevant, the art is sentience

This is BAR ROC

Quintessentially Ellerman House, BAR ROC’s tailored interior has a tangible sense of distilled calm and languid luxury.

The precisely articulated material palette is raw, brutal, sumptuous. Exacting design allows each finish to express itself with clarity and integrity, revealing and accentuating the linear, rigorous elegance of the space.

Attitude and Resonance 

The terrazzo floor and bar counter, the expansive use of solid brass, are reminiscent of the halcyon days of the Milanese bar / bistro; terrazzo conveying both classicism and modernity. Juxtaposed mirrored brass and austere, deep, black finishes instill an ambiance of quiet provocation.

BAR ROC emits an evocative lustre truly in keeping with the attitude and resonance of Ellerman House.


A relaxed, contemporary space for friends to gather at the end of the day and chat about the incredible adventure they find themselves on. A space for the classic raconteur to wax lyrical about his or her African escapades. A space to say goodnight to another glorious day while watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.

We look forward to playing home to the most stylish bar in Cape Town. Kindly note an advance booking is essential.

New and Innovative 

Nell Harris, Ellerman House’s design advisor says, Adam and his team from OKHA have done an incredible job of complimenting the classic elegance of the house with this innovative and contemporary space. In addition to our two Villas, Wine Gallery and Contemporary Art Gallery, BAR ROC adds to the present-day elements of the property.
