MEL'S PLACE

PLETTENBERG BAY

Plett’s number one live music venue

Right up there with the premier music venues in the country, Mel’s Place is a home from home for the very best of South African music.  Mel Botes is your host, impresario, rockstar and doyenne of his domain and continues to welcome just about every South African music star you can think of. 

The lapa is warm and welcoming any time of the year, providing the perfect ambiance for the smaller shows and big-screening of major sport. On glorious days and starry nights legendary musicians gently or properly rock the outdoor lawns in big concert atmosphere, or at casual picnic style tables. Enjoy the simple delicious show menu including Mel’s signature thin-base 30cm pizzas, delicious with ice cold beer, a good selection of chilled wines and a full bar!  

“Mel's Place ? What a Super Gem right on our doorstep!
last night..WOWZERS..an experience we will never forget!!! 
Your place is AmaZing and your food was YuMmy. Thank-you for the happy memories!" 

and ROCK BAR

Be sure to visit our Box Office to keep an eye out for upcoming shows, or to book your table for our ticketed events.

You’ll often see the man himself taking the stage, usually accompanied by his equally talented son on drums. Together they form a formidable duo bound to get you on your feet.

Mel’s Place hosts both local and international performances. This location is unrivalled when it comes to good music, good food, good art, and memorable experiences. 

LIVE SHOW MENU

Pizza Bar, Take-aways

At Mel’s Place, we have a passion for celebrating the art of food and cooking, combined with a dash of culture. Our rebellious menu and adventurous cooking style is guaranteed to create a unique dining experience. Food is only available for ticket holders when we have a live show.

During smaller live shows, we offer full table service with our short and sweet show menu (pizzas, burgers, salads and special meal of the day). Relax with some live music while the fire crackles and the vino flows. Dining can also take place in the outside area under the stars, where lanterns and candles add to the welcoming atmosphere. During bigger live shows, we go full festival style with self service food stalls and bar.

Food is prepared and served with care and pride.

Let the coffee do the talking

Outside on the deep verandah or inside the cosy Coffee Café / Restaurant, good conversation and fun times flow with great coffee and special friends.  Enjoy healthy smoothies, boozy coffees your favourite milkshakes and other Coffee Café classics (or a cold beer). We will continue to surprise to you with the meal of the day. Free Wi-Fi makes it a perfect place to have your next meeting, and why not book for your next birthday, art workshop or book-club gathering?  Make sure to visit our Art Gallery with a selection of driftwood sculptures and local art inside! Open for breakfast and lunch from 9 am – 3 pm on Tuesday to Sunday, and seven days a week in summer, the Coffee Café is pet friendly and fully licensed. 

Trading Hours – 9am-3pm daily, Fridays & Saturdays 9am-8pm, Sundays 9am-2pm and Mondays CLOSED.

THE SHOPPE @ MEL'S

Convenience, collectibles, clothing and home industries

Step into The Shoppe and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back to the time of slow living when waterblommetjies were bottled for the season, home bakes were, well, home baked, and olive oil was decanted from a vat.  You’ll find all of that at our clean and fresh convenience store situated at Mel’s Place, and a host of essentials from basics like ice, braai wood, bread and milk, to more exotic goodies like smoked trout, bulbs of garlic, olives, jams, rusks, koeksisters and more! Local is our byword.

Also essential in Plett: browse our collection of caftans and casualwear for easy summer days, and you’ll be enchanted by the irresistible collectables and eclectic selection of décor and interesting items.

Open seven days a week from 9 am to 6 pm in summer, we look forward to welcoming you.  After a bit of retail therapy, put your feet up at the Coffee Café next door!
