What started as a market stall at The Linden Market in 2016 with friends, the idea to open a stand alone gin bar in Linden was born.

Tonic is owned and operated by Dennis & Caitlin Human. With over 170 local and international gins and a huge amount of ways to drink it there is something for every gin connoisseur, newbie and critic!

Cocktails are front and centre of our business but we also do some delicious food offerings that include nibbles like warm gin & circus olives, sweet corn ribs and the best hand cut chips with chorizo ketchup and then more substantial food like pork belly on slaw, load flat breads and Korean chicken wings.

The decor is pink, clean, modern and a Scandi inspired - with an ode to a punky Queen Elizabeth who has a G&T everyday at 10am (so our sources say!)


After the space next door became available which we share kitchen space with, we decided to highlight our next love in life, WINE! With a focus on unusual wines and smaller, independent wine makers our offering is not run of the mill. Food is contemporary with a strong Middle Eastern influence, like Duck Baklava to start with and Octopus and Broad Bean purée and lamb and Babaganoush as mains.

The restaurant is warm, terra-cotta colored with pops of green, gold and marble.




Head northeast on N1 Western Bypass (Toll road). Use the left lane to take exit 85 for Beyers Naude Drive/M5 toward Northcliff/Honeydew.

Use the right 2 lanes to turn right onto Beyers Naudé Dr/M5 (signs for Beyers Naude Drive/Windsor/Northcliff) and continue for about 4.9 km. Turn left onto 5th St/Milner Avenue and then turn right onto 5th Avenue. Turn left onto 7th Street. Tonic and Tanen will be on the right.
