I have always been passionate about Natural History. The collections in this museum are extraordinary. Founded in 1825 this is the oldest museum in sub-Saharan Africa, includes the only preserved specimen of the extinct Quagga and ridiculously beautiful diorama’s of the Karoo. I don’t believe any natural history collection can be compared with another, this one is old and decaying and quite perfect...period.. If I’m ever short of inspiration this is where I’ll go.
Looking for an early morning coffee on the way to work or a place to go for a couple beers on a Saturday night? The Power & The Glory is definitely the place, with a great crowd consisting of Cape Town's finest and a constant stream of good music, it's hard not to feel at home in this cozy joint.
A personal favourite as I created the branding Identity for this space, so I've spent many afternoons and evenings here whenever family visited me in Cape Town. Probably the best service in CT!
The Shortmarket Club is an incredible fine dining restaurant tucked away at the top of a narrow staircase, in the centre of town. It has the feel of a closed members’ club. The space is equipt with classic New York style booths, romantic lighting, an open style kitchen and skilled waiters. The head Chef and owner, Wesley Randles prides himself on locally sources produce, he serves up dishes that tantalize and inspire. Every time. Their selection cocktails, AB Badenhorst wines and the Cape Malay octopus is a must!
