The best way to make the most of the summer sun is to do the one thing Capetonians are famous for: afternoon drinks! Here are some of the most Instagram-perfect bars to visit in Cape Town this summer. We are giving you the most Instagram – perfect bars to visit in Cape Town:
1. Cape To Cuba in Kalk Bay:
Want to be indoors and on the beach? Have the best of both worlds with this hot spot. The mix of sand and benches gives you a beach vibe – while you’re inside. The light pink and turquoise add some colour and just like that you’re transported to a place that’s right out of a daydream. With yummy cocktails, Cuban food and live music over the weekends, Cape to Cuba is the place to be!
Tip: go early and grab the much-loved swings to spend the evening on.
2. The Silo Bar in the V&A Waterfront:
Remember the window with solid black geometric bars across it that you’re seeing all over Instagram? Yup! This is its home! Pick a window seat or head onto the rooftop for a view you won’t easily forget. Think plush jewel tones and old-school glamour with a modern twist – this is the Silo bar. The rooftop bar is only open to hotel guests during peak season, but that’s okay! Check it out during the off-season and don’t forget to try one of their tasty cocktails.
3. Grand Daddy Rooftop Bar on Long Street:
Ever partied in Long Street? This bar takes it to the next level – pun intended. This spot sits in the heart of the party scene, right along Long Street. Enjoy endless views from the elevated spot and watch Cape Town come alive. From the quirky decor to the relaxed atmosphere this is one spot every local has to visit.
Tip: Try their movie nights for a screening under the stars.
4. Chinchilla Rooftop Cafe and Bar in Camps Bay:
Jewel tones, wood and pops of bright green plants is the thing Instagram photos were made for. You escape the noise of Victoria Road plus you get unspoilt views of the ocean. If the wind picks up, simply move inside, otherwise enjoy the warmth, enjoy the cocktails and watch the waves comes and go. #NoFilterNeeded
5. The Grand Africa in Granger Bay:
Right on the beach of Granger Bay, it’s easy to see why Grand Africa is a favourite for almost everyone. Sit back, sip a cocktail and enjoy the unspoilt views of the Atlantic – it’s picture-perfect! Be prepared to spend a bit more on cocktails at this spot, but what it lacks in affordable drinks, it makes up for in great vibes over the weekend. Not too keen to get sand in your sliders? No problem, avoid the sand altogether by lounging by the inside area and bar.
