It’s no secret that visitors to Cape Town are blessed with stunning views virtually everywhere they go. From the imposing peaks of the Table Mountain National Park to the glittering waters of the city’s world-class beaches, the Mother City’s vistas are as beautiful as they are varied.
And when it comes to taking in the city’s sights, particularly its most famous attraction Table Mountain, where better to enjoy and appreciate the view than on a sunny day on a rooftop bar, refreshing drink in hand.
And while the city boasts more than a few beautiful rooftop watering holes to choose, the following 3 are some of our faves to gaze at the city’s beloved mountain icon.
And best of all they’re all within a relatively short distance from Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel & Self-Catering Apartments, meaning it’s super convenient to experience all 3 of these when staying at either our hotel or self-catering apartments, ideally located in the city centre along Long Street.
Situated along a trendy corner of Kloof Nek road, this rooftop bar which sits above the boutique Cloud 9 Hotel doesn’t just present its guests with arguably the best up-close-and-personal view of Table Mountain, it also features a turquoise splash pool that is just so instagrammable.
SKY BAR, ABOVE PIANO BAR
The Sky Bar above Piano Bar in the charming De Waterkant quarter is another bar with a pool and view. Come here for relaxing sunset vibes, gorgeous mountain views and, when the weather demands, a welcome splash in the pool.
Eclectic décor and a cool hipster vibe characterise Dark Horse, an eatery and watering hole located on upper Kloof Road at the base of Table Mountain. Come here during the day for cold beers, and epic views. And at night, the socialising and people-watching are on point.
