Evita se Perron, the cabaret theatre and restaurant created by Pieter-Dirk Uys in 1996, is the home of Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout, the most famous white woman in South Africa. Here you can meet Tannie Evita, along with other respected and yet scandalous members of her family, as well as many of South Africa’s most loved icons and loathed aikonas.

The name Evita se Perron was inspired by the venue’s location in the former Darling railway station.  Perron in Afrikaans means station platform and Evita is also the name of South Africa’s most famous white woman, Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout.

The Perron’s quirky, relaxing atmosphere makes it the ideal venue for every type of occasion, such as birthday parties, engagements, weddings, civil ceremonies and anniversaries, as well as for corporate functions, awards ceremonies, end-of-year celebrations and team-building outings.  Details for planning your special function at Evita se Perron can be found here.

On weekends, Pieter‑Dirk Uys performs his internationally acclaimed shows live on stage.  The full programme can be found here.  You can also enjoy great traditional South African cooking in our restaurant, which features recipes from Evita´s Kossie Sikelela cook book. Our menu can be viewed here.


Evita se Perron is open Tuesday thru Sunday, 10am to 4pm
(closed on Mondays)


Evita Bezuidenhout celebrates 20 years of her Darling venue Evita se Perron with a weekly episode of Evita’s Free Speech
