Alexander Bar Archive: 2011 to 2019

This is an archive of the old venue at 76 Strand Street, Cape Town, South Africa and information about the shows between 2011 and 2019.

This archive was put up on 2020-09-11 with the show archive including audience responses.

On 2020-09-13 we put up a bunch of old photos like the antique telephones and a downstairs gallery, Marvin Smith's photos from Alex bar and even some pre-installation photos.

We have a lot more information to add.

If you have material relating to the old Alexander Bar, Café & Theatre (2011—2019) and the shows it hosted, and you would like to contribute, do send us an email

Alexander Bar, Café & Theatre was opened in 2011 by Edward van Kuik and Nicholas Spagnoletti (whose both second names are 'Alexander'). Since 2019, it has become The Courtyard Playhouse, under new management.
