La Parada's journey started on Cape Town's Bree Street, the city's culinary hotspot, in 2013. Swiftly gaining acclaim for its signature Spanish-inspired cuisine, sophisticated beverages, and inviting ambiance, the legacy expanded to Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Durban.
What to Expect
“We chose Melrose Arch for our 10th Gauteng venture due to its vibrant energy, uniqueness, and perfect alignment with our brand,” says Jolene Strydom, Head of Marketing at Life and Brand Portfolio. Guests can indulge in a choice of three seating areas: inside, where La Parada’s true flair and ambiance come to life; outside, a fusion of Melrose Arch and La
Parada's charm; and upstairs, the Flamenco Lounge. "The lounge is reminiscent of traditional Spanish Whiskey Lounges, infused with the essence of La Parada," adds Strydom. The menu caters to casual diners seeking a shared tapas-style experience with Spanish undertones and a South African influence, a hallmark of La Parada's fame. Explore a menu featuring traditional delights like Spanish pizzas, tapas, churros, as well as innovative modern dishes. "This delectable cuisine is complemented by an extensive cocktail menu offering classic and contemporary cocktails expertly crafted by our mixologists," continues Strydom.
