Visiting Barrydale in the Western Cape and looking for cool things to do? Here are a few fun activities you have to check out…
Check out Ronnie’s Sex Shop in Barrydale
Not as lewd as the name suggests, Ronnie’s Sex Shop is a treasured pub and pit-stop along Route 62. The well-known story goes that Frank Ronald (Ronnie) Price bought a little farmer’s cottage in Barrydale, with the hopes to turn it into a fresh-produce stall.
He painted the name ‘Ronnie’s Shop’ on the side of the building, and one day, his friends played a prank and add the word ‘Sex’ to it, making it read ‘Ronnie’s Sex Shop’.
The name stuck and Ronnie’s Sex Shop became a popular stop for passing roadtrippers. Stop by for a drink or a bite to eat and don’t forget to get your picture taken with the sign!
