The concept is hip and colourful with the ‘Mind the Gap’ theme carried throughout the venue from train seating to courtyard bus shelter to an underground dance floor.

We love the fact that our venue stays true to Cape Town’s three-centuries-old reputation as the world’s eclectic meeting place by the sea,” says The Station on Bree founder Neil Basel.
