Live Music and The Finest Steaks In Town For Half Price
HQ’s Live Music Mondays includes the #2FOR1Monday special: two salads, two steaks and bottomless chips
HQ, the Parisian-inspired city steakhouse loved by Capetonians, is known for its no-fuss but high-quality fare, and on Mondays you can order its signature dish of sirloin, salad and fries at half-price at its #2FOR1Monday special. To add to the deal, listen to established and up-and-coming acts, who play at Live Music Mondays.
Located in the heart of the Heritage Square building, HQ is close to convenient parking. The venue makes it perfect for a convenient, classy business dinner or catch-up with a friend, or even a first date if you want to make a good impression.
THERE’S MORE THAN STEAK ON THE MENU
Here’s what the steak menu looks like: it’s a grain-fed, top-cut sirloin covered in Café de Paris butter sauce, served with a salad of cos and iceberg lettuce topped with toasted pine nuts, parmesan shavings and a Dijon mustard vinaigrette, and served with a helping of skinny fries that only runs out when you can't have anymore.
Or look at the tapas menu for a range of delicious choices; from Saldanha Bay oysters (with a citrus mignonette and orange segments) to foraged wild mushrooms (with blue cheese, biscuit crumble, pea shoots and truffle oil). These can be enjoyed in either the low-lit lounge area or the open-air courtyard lit with fairy lights, which also boasts the oldest wine-producing grapevine in the southern hemisphere.
BOOK YOUR TABLE EARLY
Live Music Mondays run from 6pm to 11pm. Early diners can have their dessert and coffee in the ambient candle-lit lounge where the live music sessions kick off at 7pm.
The courtyard tables are available to be booked for 7pm, as well as the couch pockets in the lounge. Keep an eye on HQ's social media for live act announcements and remember, It fills up quickly, so ensure to make a reservation at (+27 (0)21 424 6373) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
