Introduction to Route 2
From the bustle of the CBD, the holiday vibe at the V&A Waterfront to the unrivalled coastline views as you travel along Victoria Road to the 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa, the City and Atlantic Seaboard ticks all the boxes for an iconic Cape Town experience. Table Mountain and Lion’s Head dominate the landscape, a fantastic beach is never more than a few minutes away, and the boom of the Noon Gun at 12pm can be clearly heard, signaling time for a cold one.
CAPE TOWN CBD
The Station on Bree & Kennedy’s
Long Street, Cape Town’s boho hood where cafes, coffee shops, bookstores, and backpackers hustle to get your attention, competing with pubs, curio caves, vintage clothing, and an alley of antiques. When the sun goes down the energy intensifies as the party is always on in Long Street.
Work break or playtime, day or night, the doors of Kennedys are open, the beer is always cold and the gin mixers crisp and light. Sidewalk tables, a cool interior, out on the roof or upstairs at the window, this is where you chill and watch the passing parade, or party until you can’t anymore. Long Street + Noon Gun = good times.
Bree Street was crushing hard on Long Street, but many say it now owns the title of coolest street in town. The Station on Bree is an experience NOT TO MISS! It’s got vibe, culture, amazing food – and great beer. The décor is stunning, so is their line-up of music and events.
V&A Waterfront and Ginja
The V&A Waterfront is huge, the size of 180 rugby fields. It was created around a working harbour and over time has expanded to encompass nine districts, each with a unique look and feel. Anything is possible at the V&A, from bird’s eye views from a helicopter flip or the pocket friendly Cape Wheel, to boat and canal cruises, art and craft sheds, heritage trails and of course massive shopping malls and countless restaurants.
Ginja restaurant has iconic views of Table Mountain over the waters of the Alfred Basin and the Marina. The inside setting provides a tranquil respite from the activity outside, and the perfect place to relax with a beer and a map of this vast playground as you plan your route through the districts. When the exploring is done, it is back to Ginja for a restoring brew at one of the waterside tables to admire the views and do a bit of people watching.
The Leopard Bar at 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa:
Dress up a little for drinks at the best address in town. Sheltered by the mountain, cooled by the sea breeze, the dramatic views of Lions Head from the deck at the 12 Apostles Leopard Bar will leave you speechless.
Views from the 12 Apostles Hotel = Nice
Sunset views from the 12 Apostles Hotel = Very Nice
Sunset views from the 12 Apostles Hotel + a frosty Noon Gun Brew = Ah, this is what happiness tastes like!
Lionshead is the favourite hike for locals and tourists! It is not difficult to find – but please – do take water and sunscreen. A cold beer and GINNIC will be waiting for you at The Station on Bree or Kennedy’s!
