The Blue Gem - DeckSpending time on the outside deck of The Blue Gem – be it an informal gathering, a planning meeting or a cup of tea – dreams of peace and quiet may just come true.

This is the perfect spot for a quick coffee or a light lunch. Looking out over the Piazza Preller, this is also a peaceful spot for a sundowner while business starts to wind down in the shops below.
Also available as a venue that can be rented for special occasions, it can be closed off with the option of a connected private room.

Despite being outside, it is sheltered from weather conditions. In the Free State winter heaters are provided and a cooling system will provide welcome relief in the hot Bloemfontein summer.
The comfortable couches and other furniture can be rearranged to provide a comfortable space for whatever your party may require.

Plants and soft lighting will provide a perfect peaceful setting for just about any type of party or social gathering with friends and family.
