In 2005 The First Durban International Blues Festival took place at Zack’s Wilson’s Wharf- home to the festival for many years after that. For no other reason than adventure, need for a little more space with growing audiences and “testing change’ the organizers took the event to other venues, and whilst they may do so in the future , Zacks Wilson’s Wharf was the obvious and well loved “home of the DIBF” for the 2018 event- concurrent thoughts of both DIBF Organizers and blues fans ! With its “indoor/outdoor “ ambience, the salty sea water and sail ships an arms length away, Durban’s harbour and city lights, the venue is truly unique – not to mention safe parking and close proximity for most Blues fans .
Zack’s, an independent Café, opened it’s doors on 1 June 2001 in Durban, KZN, South Africa and in true café style we are open seven days a week from 8.00 am till late, offering an extensive menu that caters for every taste, and a colourful, but deadly, cocktail menu with a loyal fan base that keeps coming back for more.
Zack’s pride themselves on their flexibility, and where possible, would like to give you exactly what you want – even if it’s not on the menu… and remember ‘to err is human, to overindulge essential!!!’
Music is an essential ingredient in life and at Zack’s are active in the support of local musicians, and offer live music in all of their venues from mini rock shows to afternoon jazz and our regular open mic evenings which offer budding local musicians a platform to strut their stuff!!… Check out “What’s on”.
So, whether you’re looking for great food, exotic cocktails or a night of entertainment , get down to Zack’s where it’s… more than just good food!
Just so you know! Zack’s is 100% KZN, born, bred and baptized!
