Sunday Sundowners –Where to Go in Cape Town

Written by Brianna Smity

blankSunday afternoons are usually the most enjoyable, and yet most dreaded part of every weekend. You’re glowing after a flurry of weekend madness and there it is: Monday – staring you in the face.


Well, you can put off those worries for a few more hours and meet up with friends at one of our three choices of hot spots in Cape Town. Whether you are just there to relax, sit back and enjoy the view, or have a last night of living la vida loca before Monday morning; we suggest the following…

St Yves Beach Club on Victoria Road in Camps Bay is undoubtedly the place to be seen these days. It is a hot favourite with the glamorous, the artistic, the socialites and, of course, you. Enjoy awesome view of the Atlantic seaboard while sipping on decadent cocktails or sampling some of the finest whiskeys and champagnes. This is definitely the spot to go when you want to experience the never ending holiday vibe that Camps Bay is so famous for.


A Cape Town icon and the preferred hangout of people like Prince Harry, Leonardo Di Caprio, Paris Hilton and Robbie Williams – not to mention the constant influx of local and international models and DJs, Cafe Caprice on Victoria Road in Camps Bay is always a safe bet for a super Sunday. The food is amazing, the vibe can go from laidback to crazy in a few hours and the cocktails rock. It’s no surprise that Cafe Caprice has been in business for years – located across the road from Camps Bay Beach, with its sidewalk tables and stylishly decorated interior, Caprice is just what your pre-Monday blues need.

Grand Café & Beach is by far one of the trendiest places in an already very trendy part of Cape Town – Granger Bay Road, right next to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. Think Persian rugs, Parisian chandeliers, rich fabrics and – get this – couches on the beach. Yep, you can order your favourite sundowner and park off with your nearest and dearest (or potential hookup) and enjoy the view of beautiful people, soft white sand, decadent decor and the gentle rumble of the ocean. And just in case you forget where you are – be sure that Table Mountain will be there to remind you that, yes, you have in fact, forgotten about your pre-Monday blues.
