Cocktails are NOT on Happy Hour, if the bottom or top bar are busy, please refrain from ordering 4 cocktails and holding up the bar person for 10 minutes while they create the cocktail. 

Frog Revolution does has a pub menu, so if you want to grab a bite, you can get something at the pub. 
We used this same venue in 2018 for the France vs Springboks match, and it was a great vibe for everyone from the Braai Army to meet up. Yes we are going to have a jol, but please always remember we are ambassadors for South Africa, so be polite, friendly and fun. 

The troops will be gathering at the world-famous "Cafe Oz Denfert" at 14:00
