New kid on the block: The 41 Restaurant & Bar

I recently attended the launch of a new restaurant & bar on the Camps Bay strip called The 41.  Making it just in time for the summer season, The 41, promises to be a spot that will offer a little something to both daytime beach-goers and nighttime diners and party folks.

The brainchild of two […]

And the SA Weddings Bride of the Year is…

So I always knew weddings were a big thing… But what I didn’t realise is that it doesn’t just have to end with your big day… You can also walk away with some pretty kick-ass prizes if you happen to snag the coveted title of Bride of the Year. (nice way to recoup some […]

UMI (part of the Kove Collection – which also includes The Marly & The Alphen boutique hotels, Paranga, Pepenéro & 5 Rooms to name a few) is a relatively new eatery on the Camps Bay strip where the old St Yves Beach Club used to be.

Thanks to this location, you can only imagine that […]

Le Roi – a new addition to the Camps Bay strip

Next time you’re in Camps Bay for some drinks and Caprice is getting a bit too hectic (as it does – especially while all the JoBurg’ers are in town), why not head a bit further down and check out the new Le Roi Beach Bar.

I was there recently for a friend’s birthday drinks and […]

Seeing the city through tourist eyes

So I’ve had my friend Austin here for a few days.  He’s a New Orleans born guy who currently lives in San Diego.  We became friends on a train station somewhere in Italy while I was touring there in 2011.

It’s his first visit to Cape Town (and South Africa for that matter) and I’ve […]

Rustic vibes at Baked Bistro

Baked Bistro is one of those easy, cosy spots with a bit of a rustic feel where you could easily just pull up a chair and chillax for a a few hours with a book or magazine…

Owner Zahir Mohamed says he really just wanted to create a space for the locals to enjoy. A local […]

Say farewell to St Yves with one last bash (plus a ticket giveaway)

So St Yves Beach Club has been there for the Cape Town party scene for the last 4 years, bringing folks top DJs, great parties and really one of the best views in town:

Now sadly, the venue has been taken over for hotel development, and therefore they are planning one last big bash, going out […]

Get swept back in time with Short & Sweet’s Full Moon Drive-in Cinema

Where will I be this Wednesday evening?  At the Short & Sweet Full Moon Drive-in Cinema, and I’m so freakin’ excited…

I’m a huge Short & Sweet fan and you should’ve seen previous mentions of their short film evenings here on the blog.  They will be sticking to their usual winning formula of carefully selected […]

Biking it in the summer sun

So with all the Christmas eating and general silly season overindulgence, I’ve been in desperate need of getting my wobbly butt movin’ & shakin’ again. 😉

But with the beautiful weather we’ve been having, it just seems a bit of a waste to spend your time indoors at the gym.  Much better option?  Getting on […]
