Rooftop bars in Cape Town
The mother city is known for it’s gorgeous views and what better way to enjoy it than from a gorgeous rooftop bar in Cape Town. We love a good rooftop bar especially at sunset or on one of those picture perfect Cape Town days. There are a few of these rooftop bars that stand out above the rest for various reasons though.
Here are our 5 favorite rooftop bars in Cape Town to enjoy!
Radisson Red Rooftop Bar
The Radisson red boasts one of the coolest and prettiest rooftop bars in Cape Town. With it’s funky decor and unspoilt views it is definitely a hot spot in the Silo district. Their rooftop also has a splash pool that will give you respite from that Cape Town Summer sun if you feel like taking a dip. The atmosphere is fun and hip with DJ’s mixing it up with cool tunes and lots of activity.
Baptiste rooftop bar at The Marly Camps Bay
The Marly rooftop otherwise known as Baptiste is a new kid on the block and it has pulled out all the stops. Situated high above the Camps Bay strip it gives you what must probably be the best views in the bay. The bar area is large with sun loungers and a gorgeous pool that we couldn’t resist. Booking is essential for non guests and the bar is only open from 11am – 8pm weather permitting.
Chinchilla Rooftop Bar Camps Bay
Chinchilla is another rooftop gem in Camps Bay. It has a laid back beach vibe with colourful accents and killer cocktails. Find a spot where you can enjoy the glittering blue Atlantic right in front of you and settle down for a great time. We couldn’t help but take photos in every corner of this place but remember it only opens at 4pm on weekdays and 12pm on weekends.
The Silo Hotel Rooftop Bar
The Silo rooftop bar definitely has that “it” factor. This insane 5 star hotel just offers the best and the rooftop is no different. Mix with a mix of locals and foreigners over a glass of bubble while you watch the sun set behind Lions Head. Unfortunately the pool is only for guests but it still makes a gorgeous addition to the area. It gets pretty full so booking is essential! Open from 12pm till sunset, weather permitting.
The Sky Bar at the Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel
If quirky, eclectic and fun is your vibe then don’t miss out on the Sky Bar in Long street. We love Grand Daddy as they have the coolest airstreams and such a good energy! Their rooftop is definitely unique and if you get the chance book a night in a airstream.
