The Area - City Bowl Cape Town

Big Bay Beach

Cape Town, the Mother City of South Africa, is world renowned for her Table Mountain, beautiful beaches, wines from the bordering Boland district and above all the friendly people.

The City Bowl, as the natural amphitheatre-shaped area bordered by Table Bay and the mountain is known as, houses an assortment of the best this world city has to offer.

The City Bowl is a small area, only about 5km in radius and within this small area awaits a world of cultures, sounds, tastes and sights. You could easily spend weeks on end exploring it and find something new to write home about, every day.

The City Bowl has the Bo-Kaap (Upper Cape Town), one of the oldest areas in Cape Town (and South Africa), built against the flanks of Signal Hill with its mainly Muslim community. Here you can discover secret spice shops in the original cobbled streets, while listening to the muezzin calling the faithful to salat (prayer).
Walking down from the hill, just one or two blocks, you will end in Bree Street, the hippest and most happening street in all of Cape Town when it comes to world class bakeries, coffee shops and little restaurants. Meet the owners and passionate foodies while enjoying their produce and listening to the banter of the locals.

One more block down you enter eccentric Long Street, lined with independent boutiques and quirky eateries, but after sunset ready yourself for and outrageous night of partying.

The Company Gardens and St Georges Cathedral is at the top end of St Georges Mall, which runs all the way along Adderley Street and from there one has to visit the Castle of Good Hope before hopping into a taxi and taking the cable car up the beautiful mountain.

The City Bowl offers an assortment of entertainment; theatres, world class restaurants to suite every palate, bars with live music, clubs for the young, jazz clubs for the soulful, Deer Park for the nature lovers, Signal Hill for the fit and healthy, all in the peaceful shadow of Table Mountain.
One has not even touched on the active art world, or the fact that Cape Town has been designated as the 2014 World Design Capital! Or the fact that the City Bowl is the home of Cape Town's central business district.
