I went to Babylon recently and had an AMAZING time. For someone who’s clubbing days are far behind me, I was made to feel very ‘at home’. From the management to the patrons I encountered, I was greeted with friendliness and felt very comfortable. Thank you Babylon.

The staff was great, the music was lit and the space is gorgeous. Not to mention the beautiful people. Great way to end my trip to Jozi.

The gay community have fought for equal rights for soo long and now we have a club where we can be gay while being equal with straight people – I love the dynamic that creates the unique atmosphere that is Babylon the Bar…..celebrity, straight or gay it is somewhere to just have fun.
