(Text Copyright: Joe`s Beerhouse in Windhoek)
Stumble across an oasis in a land of contrast, a retreat of wholesome, Namibian and German food.
A sanctuary of endless relics, they are the storytellers of Joe and his countless travels. A place where you can pull up a chair and relish in good, old-fashion hospitality. Where the portions are generous, the beer is icecold and good conversations is abundant.
The crackling fire along with a bottle of one of our wines will make your night a cosy one. Give into African time. Take a seat at the bar, the night is still young….
Joe’s Beerhouse was established in 1991 and opened its doors to the public – October 1991, located in Grimm Street (behind Trè)
