News Cafe opens its doors in Swakopmund

South African franchise, News Cafe opened a new store in Swakopmund this week, offering an urban and sleek décor for the coastal community.

The leader in the social lifestyle category, which recently unveiled its new direction in décor, is ready to bring its unique vibe to the urban sophisticates of Swakopmund.

News Cafe’s premium offering, a combination of a coffee bar, cocktail bar, restaurant and entertainment venue, has remained the market leader for two decades.

The new store follows in the footsteps of this award-winning and innovative pioneer in the food and beverage industry.

The new News Cafe Swakopmund, which perfectly encompasses the trendy, chic positioning of the brand, opened its doors on 7 September with South Africa’s DJ Nibblez and a live broadcast on Windhoek’s Kosmos Radio.

Timeless and elegant, the design focus plays on the restaurant’s appeal as a venue for every occasion. The bar, the restaurant’s centerpiece, features a chipped concrete mural, copper light finishes and seamlessly sculpted soft, wooden textures.

Remarkably, Swakopmund celebrates its 125th anniversary this year and the brand-new News Cafe Swakopmund will play an integral part in celebrating the founding of the city.

We’re introducing an unforgettable vibe. We provide a great service with premium food and a rather extensive menu,” Hugo Ferreira who opened the Swakopmund branch said.

Ferreira was inspired to launch News Cafe Swakopmund after experiencing the eclectic energy and popularity of the brand in South Africa and across the continent.

The new restaurant, which will cater to residents and travelers alike, provides a unique vibe for everything from after work sundowners, to cocktails with friends, and shareable platters with friends and family.
