Harringtons Cocktail Lounge — The roaring 20s in District 6
Circular windows and plush art deco finishings create a cool, great Gatsby submarine vibe.
We love… the spacious interiors, live jazz, DJs and daily food and drinks specials.
Grand Africa Café & Beach — Ibiza in Cape Town
All the Ibiza, sand in your toes, beach party feels. Eye-wateringly expensive champagne features on the menu.
We love…views of the sea and the jet skiers and yachts that go with it, cool sculptures and epic events.
Tjing Tjing Rooftop Bar — Tokyo on a roof
Japanese secret rooftop den with a bright red bar, sunken lounges and exposed beams. Expect exceptional food and cocktails.
We love… Kokeshi Doll tables, Seven Samurai cocktail with Sake, sesame, mango, rosemary and Shimeji.
The Cape Milner’s Glass Lounge — Sky views with cocktails
A glass conservatory with a crisp Cape Town edge. It has that elegant hotel-lounge comfort that makes you feel like a VIP.
We love… the chic pool deck and warm, attentive service
Kloof Street House — Cool bohemian granny digs
Eclectic doesn’t even cover it. A Leafy courtyard leads into gypsy-boho spaces with cosy lounges and a bar made of suitcases.
We love… the cat geisha portrait, the collections of antiques and the gorgonzola and wild mushroom arancini.
Asoka — Romantic and moody
Kloof Street House’s cute younger sister. Lounge in an intimate, golden fairie-garden with an Asian edge.
We love… The tree growing through the middle of the lounge, tasting plates with Earth, Water, Wind, Fire and Nirvana themes.
Athletic Bar & Social — it doesn’t get smoother
A three-storey, Victorian house converted, with impeccable style, into a lounge, café and jazz club space. Here, the classic London-club aesthetic gets an upgrade of African sophistication.
We love… the Mesquite flat whites, delicious Greek Mezze and nods to South African sports legends.
