Restaurant Details

Rather quietly sometime in the middle of January, the section of Brooklyn that had lost its beloved South African restaurant Madiba just a year prior suddenly woke up to find another one open a few blocks east in Clinton Hill. Amandla gets its name from the days of apartheid in South Africa, where this word that means “power” was used by the resistance, and today still is employed in the ongoing struggle against oppression.

The mood inside this new space is less of struggle and more about chill. A mashup of textures and furniture are leftover from the previous bar that used to live here, while a bright new mural dedicated to South Africa has been commissioned for the front of the restaurant. During my first visit, the paint was literally still drying.
