The Meat Bar features a new bar menu, with platters of cured meats and oysters along with an exclusively South African wine list. But it is the drinks that are set to cause some surprise.

The first of the meat-infused cocktails is a modern twist on a classic; Bloody Bacon, made from a Bloody Mary mix and bacon vodka, garnished with celery, crispy smoked bacon and a skewer of soft cheese and cherry tomatoes.

Another concoction is the Meatequita, a blend of tequila reposado infused with chorizo, vegetable juice, balsamic vinegar, smoked sea salt pepper and port.

And for fish lovers, there’s the Wheeling Salmon, made with smoked salmon-infused vodka with lemon pepper and ice, served with smoked salmon, stuffed baby red peppers and olives.

The Meat Bar's interior features hand-carved wooden murals on the walls and ceiling, and statues of Zulu warriors. For more information on the new bar, visit www.shaka-zulu.com .
