Durban, South Africa
Opened by bartender Michael Stephenson back in 2014, this Durban joint has a laid-back and effortlessly cool vibe. With floor-to-ceiling windows and a wall covered in greenery, Lucky Shaker is vibrant on light summer evenings and transitions well into moodier nights. Taking centre stage is the bar itself, with daily specials chalked up on the board. Beyond the tasty classics and seasonal house specialties, this bar is all about eco choices, using kegs for its soda and tonic water and whey instead of egg whites, all in an effort to reduce waste.
