Tobago’s Restaurant, Bar and Terrace at the Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront
If you’re looking for the smell of surf and a fresh sea breeze as you sip on your cocktail, there is no better spot that Tobago’s Restaurant, Bar and Terrace at Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront. Not only does Tobago’s Restaurant, Bar and Terrace serve some of the city’s most delectable cocktails, it also offers breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean. As we head into summer, it is also about to expand its offering with a Sunday brunch. With flowing bubbly, world-class food from the hotel’s kitchens, and a DJ to keep you entertained, it is certainly a vibe you won’t want to miss out on.
Grand Daddy Hotel Sky Bar
Situated on Long Street, the Grand Daddy Hotel’s Sky Bar offers a gorgeous cityscape in one of the most unique settings. Not only do you get to watch the hustle and bustle of Long Street directly below you, but you do it in a “trailer park”. Sip on your drink of choice surrounded by seven vintage airstream trailers imported all the way from the US, glinting in the Mother City’s spectacular sunset.Rick’s Café Américain Rooftop Bar
Situated right in the heart of the city, Rick’s Café Américain Rooftop Bar, simply called Rick’s by locals, is an unexpected spot for a beautiful view of Table Mountain. Taking its inspiration from Humphrey Bogart’s character’s bar in Casablanca, Rick’s is known for its extensive wine list, drinks menu, and delicious food. And situated in 100+ year-old Victorian building, it certainly has the charm of its namesake, but in colour .
Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town
Most well known for its vibey lobby bar, tucked up on the first floor of the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice Cape Town is the hotel’s pool deck and bar. A little known secret, unlike most hotels this pool bar is open to members of the public. Extending from the front to the back of the hotel, it offers two different but equally beautiful views of the Mother City which you can survey as you enjoy your cocktail of choice.
The Vue Sky Bar & Lounge
Offering a sprawling 360-degree view of Cape Town with picture-postcard looks at Table Mountain, Signal Hill and all across the bay, the Vue Sky Bar & Lounge makes the most of its location on the top floor of the new Mirage building in De Waterkant. With such views and delicious stylish cocktails to boot, it’s just the venue to meet up with friends at the end of a long day’s work.
