Inspired by the “Heydays” of the 50’s and the trendsetting styles of Miami’s South Beach, this is where Flamingos flock to be surrounded by camp chic and a touch of madness.
Beefcakes’ legacy of frivolous performances, beefy table hosts, luscious libations and mouth-watering burgers prevails in a place that welcomes everyone and anyone to experience drag dining at its finest.
Yes it serves burgers, but really what most people turn up here for are the hunky waiters and the campy drag shows and entertainment. Bitchy Bingo happens on a Wednesday evenings, while on other nights you can expect a host of drag divas.
It brings to South Africans, in Cape Town (Greenpoint), Johannesburg (Illovo) and now Pretoria (Hazelwood) the thrilling girls’ night we see in the movies. Not only is Beefcakes perfect for girls’ night but has become favoured for birthdays, bachelorette and divorce parties. This fine and flirty establishment oozes flair and flamboyance; from it’s ever-so-apt and amusingly-named food dishes and cocktails, to the beefy barmen and waiters, and the fierce and fabulous host… pardon me, hostesses.
With three restaurants all with their own character, one set in the heart of Cape Town’s crown jewel of style and taste, one perfectly positioned in Joburg’s upmarket hotspot, Illovo and one in Pretoria’s upmarket hotspot, The Club Centre in Waterkloof.
