La Taperia


La Taperia is Zanzibar’s first and only Vinoteca & Tapas bar, located on the top floor of the historical Post Office building in the heart of Stone Town. This sanctuary of European cosmopolitanism and Swahili character has been tastefully restored to feature extended verandahs for people-watching, alfresco courtyard, gallery space for local artists to exhibit, fully-stocked Delicatessen and La Cava, a dome-roofed, climate-controlled space of unique historical charm, ideal for private events, wine-tastings and fine dining.

La Taperia’s innovative wine list showcases a broad selection of New and Old World wines from the QMB cellars, available by glass or bottle, to keep stocks fresh and accessible to all. Complemented by a carefully-curated menu of tapas classics and Swahili street food, La Taperia offers the perfect respite from the heat of a Tropical day or stylish evening venue for drinks and dining in the heart of Stone Town. Live music, art installations and exhibitions, sports events, wine-tastings and social gatherings keep the vibe fresh and funky, week round, year round, rainy season or dry.
