Karoo Art Hotel Bar


In any great country Karoo hotel you’ll find the most authentic art in the warm and welcoming hospitality, best experienced in the hotel’s beating heart – the bar. The Karoo Art Hotel bar has been the informal central gathering spot for Barrydale’s locals for over 120 years, offering visitors a chance to exchange views with eclectic clientele and interact with the friendly bar staff. On live music weekends, when handpicked musos perform in the bar, the bar is the most happening spot in the Klein Karoo.

It’s a truly authentic Karoo experience enjoy good company, an open fireplace in winter time, personal beer tasting and our good wine list in our bar!

The hotel is an unpretentious space in which visitors can sample South Africa’s best wines, MCCs and ports, including those produced in the Klein Karoo region, or dip into some of our single malt whiskeys, brandies and cognacs.

The classic Barrydale Karoo bar is equipped with a piano, CD, DVD and turntable, with a great selection of vinyl – or bring your own. Get comfortable, get down, and feel right at home.
