About Us

Janet and Marius

Karoo Saloon started out its life as a business called Karoo Jailhouse in 2006.

Janet and Marius took over the reigns in 2016, and developed the venue into the “home away from home” it is to all its regulars now.

What started off as a bar all those years ago, is now a multi function venue offering live concerts, various accommodation options, hiking trails and a boutique art gallery.

Ever growing and adapting, we are soon going to have an in-house vegan bakery run by Wilko and Chantelle, and Marcelle is busy working on a sizable food forest on the land behind the venue.

Charl is working on future concerts and events, and developing the venue as an event space that can offer industry standard technology and connectivity.

We have plans to get demo recording facilities in place for bands so that they can record their demos at the venue, and are training up unemployed youth through Net vir Pret with recording skills, to give them technical skills they need to equip them for the job market.
