Built in 1929 to reflect the spirit of 18th century Venice, Casa Labia is the former Muizenberg residence of Count and Countess Natale Labia. Following a complete two-year restoration by the family, this much-loved national monument was opened to the public on 5 May 2010 as South Africa’s most exquisite multi-functional cultural centre.

Casa Labia can be used for opulent and glamorous weddings, private functions, gala dinners, cocktail parties, conferences and commercial/film and stills shoots. 

Casa Labia lends itself to the most amazing musical concerts, art classes and lectures.

Casa Labia is home to Dish Food & Social's - Cucina Labia, which offers beautifully crafted menus to tempt you into the heart of this Italian home.

Please note that the Art Gallery will be closed until further notice.

Casa Labia is available for hire as an up-market venue for every occasion and occasionally we close to host private functions. To avoid disappointment and in order to plan ahead please, view the calendar under Cultural Life.  


Cucina Labia is an 50-seater restaurant inside and 32 -seater outside that exudes charm, warmth and authenticity.


The Casa Labia events team is dedicated to creating bespoke events and once in a lifetime occasions.


Our cultural centre represents the family's vision to grow the arts within the broader Cape Town community.
