Churchills has definitely lost its vibe. For a NYE event with a pricey entrance fee it definitely was not worth it. The music was terrible with a bad remix of music from early 2000s even at midnight. The drinks menu was also very weak with...More

We had the best T-bone on our trip.... And Johnny Walker Blue Label was heaven. Great atmosphere and friendly staff, specifically at the entrance. Great place!

Churchills is a very cosy cigar lounge / club. They have an assorted range of cigars for the connoisseur and is an ideal venue for a function. The music is great on Fridays and Saturdays! Really enjoyed the vibe there!

This was my first experience and must say the ridgid rules make it an uncomfortable place to just adhoc drop in. Manager was rude and clearly customers are not right or accomodated. Check the bill extra drinks added. Looks the part but not impressed

Great cosmopolitan spot. awesome vibe, music, people and service. WIDE range if liquor (always a plus). The nibbles go down very good. Overall its a 10. Try get there early cos later there's a cover charge (usually only for guys)

On a recent visit to Jhb, I happened to stay at the Fire and Ice around the corner from this restaurant. Being a cigar aficionado I naturally did some enquiries about a cigar bar in the area. Well the name certainly ticked a few boxes...More
