THE CRYPT is a famous historic meeting place beneath St George’s Cathedral where African and International jazz, cultures and cuisine fuse. The St George’s Cathedral Crypt, built in 1898, is an important Cape Town landmark and museum. Now a jazz restaurant, The Crypt serves dinner and drinks in a setting that retains a sense of its history and charm.
