Located within this creative neighbourhood, where the trendy Haji Lane is just a stone's throw away, A for Arbite aims to be more creative with a focus on food pairings. Each of the dinner items has a suggested drink pairing, resulting in a more complete dining experience.

A for Arbite will be holding CRAFT, a four day event from 26 - 29 September at A for Arbite and the Aliwal Arts Centre, to celebrate dedication, hard work and creativity. Apart from hosting a curated mix of activities, this offers A for Arbite a chance to work with the creative people whom they have met so far since A for Arbite's opening.

A for Arbite will be serving up its own fusion cuisine and unique drinks, while playing host to live workshops, demonstrations, artworks and interactive experiences.

Here's more of what you can expect!
