Bars and Cafes in Cape Town

Edit This

Cape Town Bars and Cafes offer an eclectic range of some suburban, straightforward joints and some very stylish hang-outs.

Cape Town Bars

The heaviest density of bars in Cape Town is found along the Camps Bay area. These are unfussy, casual bars and popular among the tourists. The busiest bars in this part of Cape Town include the Sandbar and the Caprice. The Baraza is another favorite among regulars since it has an in-house DJ. Finding a bar near Cape Town’s beaches isn’t too difficult. The La Med Bar is located along the beachfront of Clifton. Along the Atlantic coastline of Cape Town, the Wafu Bar of Mouille Point has been engaging attention for its rustic, wooden interiors and its mix of chilly cocktails and Asian snacks. Those seeking a more subtle, earthy ambiance should head to the Kennedy's Cigar Bar that offers a vast range of bourbons and cigars with the usual list of cocktails.

Exclusive Bars

The more upscale bars are found in the Heritage Square area. One of the trendiest bars here is called the Po Na-Na Bar. The name is based on the native Zulu dialect but its interiors and the chic regulars aren’t rural or traditional in any way. Other, slightly-expensive but modish bar options include the Planet Bar located within the Mount Nelson Hotel, located on Orange Street. Another such option is the Asoka Son Dharma, bar-cum-lounge that exudes a very sophisticated aura.

Pocket-friendly Bars

Backpackers in Cape Town looking for an affordable bar option should head to the Long Street section of the city. This is one of busiest spots in the city and is within walking distance from the nearby lodges that are sought-after by trekkers and campers. Some other affordable options include the Cubana Cafe, located on Claremont Main Road and the Wijnhuis Wine Bar in Newlands. Some hippie-styled, very elementary bars include the Brass Bell at Kalk Bay and Polona in the central Harbor area.

Sports Bar

Cape Town is home to a nationally-recognized rugby club and it is a major cricket hot-spot on the global cricketing scene, giving it a rich, sports culture. This is further amplified in the form of sports-themed bars like the Pulse Sports Bar in Green Point.

Cape Town Cafes

There is a wide mix of cafes in Cape Town. While some are very rudimentary and serve the regional foods, others cater to those with refined gastronomic senses. Some of the most popular options include the:

  • Afro Café, Church Street, Cape Town, a simple-looking but popular café that has acquired the reputation of being ‘very African.’ It should be tried for tasting the local, coffee beans. Its stalls are decorated in the native, semi-antique manner and the coffee selections include the best from South Africa and surrounding, African nations.
  • Giovanni's, 103 Main Road, Green Point, Cape Town - This is an Italian-themed, coffee bar that has become a perpetual favorite with the tourists. The morning crowd consists of joggers from the nearby green spread ordering their espressos, and during the afternoons the deli offerings become more prevalent.
