Cape Bar Information

Huguenot Venues

Huguenot Chambers is the hub of the Cape Bar, housing its members, library and administration. Members of the Cape Bar are independent advocates who include forensic specialists in every field of law, sought after both as experienced arbitrators and as expert counsel.

The newly-refurbished Huguenot Venues are premium venues which uniquely offer the neutrality of the Bar as an arbitration venue, and the convenience, time- and cost-saving of immediate proximity to counsel’s chambers for consultations, preparation and access to secretarial, research and other resources. 

The Blue Room is trusted as a neutral arbitration venue with a long tradition of resolving disputes. It has recently been upgraded with sophisticated video conferencing and AV equipment to enable participation by witnesses and parties anywhere in the world.

The Common Room is ideal for large meetings, conferences, lectures, exhibitions or social functions. The Annex is a second boardroom which can be used for arbitrations, consultations and meetings.
