Shaka Zulu is a magnificent 27000sq ft two floors club and restaurant opened in 2010 in The Stables Market in Camden. Being Gilgamesh restaurant as next door neighbour, Shaka Zulu represents the mecca for who wants to have unique experience by eating South African food and party in glorious style. The venue offers a particular unusual food selection, drinks, live music, and an uber dancing ambiance from late in the night.
The concept relies on Shaka Zulu`s famous king, Shaka kaSenzangakhona. By fighting the British forces he managed to unite the Zulu tribes and create a big nation in Southern Africa. The new nation spreads between the Phongolo and Umzimkhulu rivers. Shaka Zulu creators wanted to give a touch of his glory all over the place. As consequence, they installed 62ft tall statues of the brave king and his warriors. In fact, Shaka Zulu opened with the royal blessing form the current Zulu King, HRH Goodwill Zwelithini.
The layout and the design aims to make guests feeling a true South African ambiance. On the first level there is a braai restaurant. 20ft high statues of ancient warriors spread all around. The mezzanine level presents both a champagne bar and cocktail lounge with a breath-taking view on the restaurant downstairs. The walls are all covered by carved wooden murals representing warriors, ancients battles, mosaics and leopard print. A giant escalator escorts you through all levels, exactly like an excursion. You will be astonished from the venue décor every time you step into a new room. Shaka Zulu won few prizes due to its design.
