Check out Cape Town’s charming cityscapes from these fabulous rooftop bars.
With summer coming up, what better way is there to end the day than by enjoying a view of the city landscape from scenic heights with a cocktail in hand? We bring you the top three rooftop bars in the Cape Town CBD where you can indulge in some after-work drinks. Ready to make your list?
Tjing Tjing is known for its incredible cocktails. Join the creatives at this part attic, part rooftop bar, located in a 200-year-old heritage building. If you love a good, cold craft beer after a long day then look no further. Enjoy the sounds of electronica and indie music while taking in the views and tapas on offer.
The Grand Daddy Hotel’s Sky Bar
Looking to try something a little different this summer? Then head down to the Grand Daddy Hotel where you can go up to the Sky Bar, surrounded by a quaint little garden and Airstream trailer park. These luxury trailers were imported from the US and add a touch of American culture to the city scene. Make a night of it and book your seats at the Pink Flamingo Rooftop Cinema where you can sip on cocktails and watch the sun go down.
The Waiting Room
Looking for a place to experience up-and-coming music acts in the Cape? Maybe you’re craving a delicious burger, or looking for a central spot with a rooftop view of the city. The Waiting Room offers all of this. With Royale Eatery just below, why not start off your Friday evening with one of the best burgers in the city, head up to The Waiting Room to check out some new musos and then end it off chatting with like-minded folk on the rooftop bar?
