Remarkable Rooftop Bars
Four spectacular rooftop bars
It goes without saying that Cape Town is one of the most stunning cities in the world. With spectacular scenery almost every which way you turn, it seems a shame to waste a second of a holiday in the Mother City not admiring the views.
While many rooftops in the Cape boast spectacular vistas of the mountains, the ocean or the city (or all three), certain sky-high settings take things up an extra notch. If you’re looking for sundowners, snacks and cityscapes in a sophisticated setting, these four rooftop bars have it all.
1. Cloud 9 Rooftop Bar
Not only does Cloud 9 Rooftop Bar offer views and cocktails to write home about, but it also has a plunge pool that’s perfect for hot summer days, and sushi platters to share when you’re feeling peckish.
2. The Vue
The Vue is one of the newer rooftop bars on the scene, but its quickly made a name for itself thanks to its superb location. Located on the top floor of the Mirage building in De Waterkant, this elegant bar offers 360-degree views of Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, as well as the Waterfront and Table Bay. It’s not just a fair-weather bar, thanks to both indoor and outdoor options; and the panoramic views make it a place to see and be seen.
3. The Silo Rooftop Bar
The Silo is a glamorous new hotel at the V&A Waterfront that can boast having one of the most remarkable rooftop bars in the city (make that the country). The hotel is the epitome of industrial chic, and the rooftop bar on the 11th floor is renowned for its incredible views of the V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain and Robben Island.
4. Red Roof at the Radisson RED Hotel
Take a dip in the lap pool or soak up the 360-degree views from the rooftop at the vibrant Radisson RED hotel in the Silo District at the V&A Waterfront. Whether you wish to toast another gorgeous sunset with a craft beer, or admire the artistry of Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa), which is directly opposite the hotel, this vibey bar is a fun place to unwind in style.
