The Oddfellows Hall was the Cape Town lodge constructed for the South African branch of the Independent Order of Oddfellows [1].

It was often used for performances in the 19th century by groups such as Aurora and Kunst en Vlyt. At one time in the early 1870s it was referred to as the Royal Lyceum Theatre and in 1875 Disney Roebuck revamped and renamed the Oddfellows Hall to the Bijou Theatre. In 1876 it reverted to its original name (?*).

Today the lodge building is part of the South African Parliament Buildings.
