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 music concerts, from classical to jazz. 

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.

Casa Labia remains 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.  (Casa Labia and Cucina will be closed from the 6 June to the 27 June and will reopen on the 28 June 2017)


Cucina Labia is an 80-seater restaurant 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 a family's vision to grow the arts within the broader Cape Town community.
