A Kosher kitchen was built in 1998 (catering is supervised under the beth-din), which allows the Suikerbossie to host Kosher Weddings & Functions.The venue is also Halaal friendly – no certification could be granted by the Muslim judicial council due to the fact that we have a fully licensed bar on the premises.

A hidden gem in the heart of Woodstock! A former synagogue from yesteryear which once upon a time even housed the now famous Woodstock Bakery. The exciting new space has been delightfully transformed into an awe inspiring event venue to host your dream wedding, birthday, corporate event or whatever it is that you wish! It is wonderful and refreshing that the space is like a hidden gem tucked away right under our noses in the middle of Cape Town. The owners prefer it just this way! Their enjoyment comes from the excitement of people discovering such a magnificent venue hidden among the ruins in downtown Woodstock.

We are so grateful to the management (Luke and Walter) at CPV for helping make our dream wedding come to life! They were extremely reliable, always available, helpful, and beyond amenable to all of our requests. They worked so hard and went the extra mile to make sure everything went smoothly and how we wanted. We had so much fun – the venue’s setting is unbelievably gorgeous, the food is top quality, the wine is delicious, and the service team was so friendly and unbelievably professional.

The Homestead building dates from the 1820’s and once served as a farmhouse to supply the garrison in Wynberg. It retains many original features, including internal and external joinery. Providing a unique and Victorian feel to the southern suburbs, The Homestead now provides beautiful indoor & outdoor areas, and full onsite catering from the Food Fanatics team. The venue offers facilities for various occasions such as weddings, product launches, private birthday parties, corporate end years, workshops & meetings, art exhibitions and film/still shoots to name a few.
Had my 50th Ladies Lunch at The Homestead on 19 May 2018. It was everything I had hoped it would be! The food was really delicious and beautifully presented. Shona took my brief and delivered the exact theme I wanted to perfection. She is a gem at organising your event and nothing is too much trouble. Elaine and her team made the most delicious canapés on arrival and a delicious spread served at the table which made it informal and more conversational. Desserts were also very good. The staff were all so helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this venue for your function – Alison Lowndes
