Zwipi Underground is one of Johannesburg’s most exceptional dining spaces. Located in the historic United Safety Deposit bank vault at the Thunder Walker, the space itself is a must-see city destination. Teeming with history and old-Joburg atmosphere, the Zwipi Underground specialises in bespoke, set tasting menus. Our winter menu offers some exceptional meal choices.

Zwipi Underground is open to the public for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights from 6pm till late, but  booking is absolutely essential and no walk-ins are accepted. Zwipi is also available for private bookings on any other night but a minimum spend is required for a group booking in order for the restaurant to open up and host the group.

Zwipi Underground hosts STORYTELLING DINNER EXPERIENCES on Friday and Saturday nights. These exquisite evenings involve culinary delights and storytelling that takes you on a ‘tour’ through the history of the city between dining  courses. Themes alternate between the Secret Underground Storytelling Dinner experience and the JoburgPlaces Migrant Cuisine Storytelling Dinner experience.

Zwipi Underground also offers a series of SET MENU DINING OPTIONS. Choose from a range of exquisite six-course and three-course menus – perfect for those who want to dine without being part of a storytelling experience. Bookings can be made for Friday and Saturday nights, subject to availability and for any other time as a private group booking. A minimum spend of R12500 is required for the restaurant to specially open up for a private booking. Click on the link below to read the menus:
