We would be delighted to create a unique JAN experience with you for your special event.

In 2019, while Klein JAN was still in development, the JAN experience took its first steps on home soil in Cape Town. The JAN Innovation Studio in Kloof Street became a culinary and creative playground for Michelin-star Chef Jan Hendrik and his team of passionate chefs and creatives.

Over the last two years, however, the Studio – with its unique combination of whimsical, intimate and spectacular spaces – has become a highly popular venue for bespoke events in the Mother City.

The Studio’s open design allows for an immersive experience where guests get to interact with chefs and ingredients, draw inspiration from the Studio’s extensive cookbook library, or simply to take in the immaculate view of Table Mountain and the sights and sounds of the city from the rooftop.

Each table is set with a love of gathering and the food that brings us together.

Please note the JAN Innovation Studio caters only for bespoke private events.

We look forward to crafting your experience with you.
