Our upmarket Cocktail Lounge was opened as a result of many requests from JennaVIVA patrons who said they needed a safe, elegant establishment in SW where one could enjoy a pre-dinner drink, an after dinner night cap, quiet drink or enjoy a meal away from the busy main restaurant, in a sophisticated environment.
Sushi and Tapas served from opening till 10pm.
Come and unwind at JennaVIVA’s classy Cocktail Lounge and enjoy good vibes, sublime cocktails and delicious sushi & tapas.
Wine of Choice
In June, July and August we are privileged to feature Waterkloof Wines.
At Jenna VIVA we love wine! Good wine makes good food even better. And here in the winelands we are privileged to be immersed in a culture of superb food and outstanding wines. Where else in this beautiful country will you see acre upon acre of cherished vineyards set against an idyllic backdrop of mountains with the majestic Indian Ocean never that far away? The art of wine making is part of the heritage of this region and we salute the vinyardists, viticulturists, agricultural chemists, planters, pickers, vintners, packers, wholesalers, distributors, sommeliers, marketers and investors who make our enjoyment of wine possible.
QUALITY - this is paramount and never compromised. A panel of food and wine lovers has researched, tasted and approved each of the wines on this menu.
VARIETY - our wine offering is relatively extensive and enables our patrons to enjoy different wines, in different price ranges, on different occasions without our assortment becoming tedious.
LOCALITY - at JennaVIVA we follow the 40km rule. We support quality local wine estates & winemakers who are located within a 40km radius of Somerset West in our endeavour to support local suppliers.
EXPOSURE - we offer some well established and popular wines and also wines that are under-exposed. We call them shy wines - wines not often seen out in public.
ENJOYMENT - our wines are meant to be enjoyed with friends, for a business meeting or simply for your own personal pleasure. We hope you enjoy the wines we have selected for you!
Please note: We put a great deal of effort into selecting, trialling, procuring and storing our wines. This is our investment in your enjoyment. We are proud of of the extensive range we are able to offer. However we appreciate that there may be occasion when we are not able to offer a preferred wine and patrons may want to bring their own wine to accompany their meal. In such an event a corkage levy of R30 per bottle will apply.
