The BAT Centre

The BAT Centre

On the Victoria Embankment beside the Durban harbour is a haven for artists and musicians known as the BAT Centre (an acronym for Bartle Arts Trust, the organisation that helped to found the centre). The centre features a studio where traditional artists can work; a hall that hosts concerts, conventions and festivals; exhibition galleries; a music store and drum shop where handcrafted wooden drums are made; and a restaurant serving authentic African dishes from all over the continent. There are stunning views of the harbour from the restaurant deck, which hosts live jazz music on Sundays. Nearby is the Maritime Museum, which details the history of the harbour and houses a restored tugboat and other interesting exhibits. The BAT Centre is close to bus and kombie routes, but going at night it is best to take a taxi or drive as the area isn't safe to walk in.
