Bob’s Bar relaunch

Brandon Bardenhorst, Charles Venter, Gert Verwye, Yvonne Luyt, Pieter van der Merwe, and Tsepho Mokotjo, all from Pretoria, joined in the celebration at Bob's Bar.

After undergoing a revamp, one of the city’s best known pubs, Bob’s Bar in Long Street, showed off its new look at a re-launch party on Thursday March 23. The bar, which is now a fully-fledged nightclub, now sports new lit-up mirrors around the space, a revamped bar, a bigger dance floor and upgraded bathrooms. New lights, lasers and smoke machines have also been installed. The owner of Bob’s Bar, John Davidson, said since he took over the place six years ago, they had planned to have a re-launch. “Bob’s has been around since 1996, and this is the first re-launch it has had.” Pictures: Tamlynne Thompson
