Discover a selection of extraordinary experiences, from sushi and sashimi in our intimate Leopard Bar to gin tasting in our striking New York Bar, with live music throughout the afternoon and evening.
Fine wine is an integral part of The Rubens experience, and our wine list is filled with fine vintages from around the world. Within it you will encounter a careful selection featuring the great names from the Old World – classic wines from Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Champagne – complemented by a wide range of wines from the New World, many of them offering outstanding value.
Foremost among these are the wines from the celebrated Bouchard Finlayson, our sister wine estate, makers of some of South Africa’s most distinguished wines. The Rubens at the Palace is proud to present a range of outstanding vintages from this prestigious marque.
