Hardly difficult to find places in the mother city for sunset cocktails, but these are my favourites… (a list which will grow in time).
Polana – Kalk Bay is one of my favourite spots in Cape Town, and Polana happens to be one of my favourite hangouts there. They play music that’s perfect for lounging around on couches, sipping on jam-jars (great value-for-money cocktail served in a jar) and staring out at the mesmerising sea a few metres away.
Thorfynns Restaurant – has a wooden deck surrounded by milkwood trees, with a spectacular view of the Atlantic ocean (and sunsets). The menu is reasonably priced (about R30 for a burger). Tel 021 789 8008.
Skebanga’s Pub – spectacular view over Noordhoek Beach towards Kommetjie. Many is the time I’ve spotted breaching whales out in the bay.
