Sundowners at Ruby Pool Bar

Century City

Kickstart your night on the town at this hidden gem tucked away in the Crystal Towers Hotel in Century City. The beautiful double-volume Ruby Bar with its warm, welcoming atmosphere is just the spot for sundowners. Indulge in your tipple of choice from their extensive collection of imported champagnes and single malt whiskeys, while you catch up with friends. The Ruby Bar has two private lounges, dedicated to the travels of Kingsley Holgate and the glittering career of David Kramer, if you want to have a private get-together.

Dinner, drinks & dancing


If you are in the mood for Latino vibes then salsa your way over to Cubaña in Green Point, where you can get a taste of the authentic Cuban life. Start the evening with one of their exquisite, intricately made cocktails such as the Anana Pan, a delicious mixture of pineapple and ginger with just a touch of their secret ingredient. You can also sample some of the South American-inspired dishes such as quesadillas, nachos and more. And if the Latin rhythms seduce you, take to the dance floor for a twirl before retiring with a real Cuban cigar to end off an exotic evening.

Clubbing at Club 31


Located on the 31st floor of the ABSA building right in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD, Club 31 offers a dancefloor with a view. From this sophisticated club setting you can experience breathtaking 360-degree views of our beautiful city. But it is not just the views that will take your breath away, with top DJs in the booth and music ranging from the latest in hot commercial beats to some soulful house, you’ll be sure to dance till you drop. Please note: No men under 23 and no women under 21.

Champagne breakfast

Bistro 1682

Bistro 1682 is the perfect way to ease in the day after the night before. Sit back on the comfortable terraced dining area where you can take in the magnificent mountain views and expansive winelands. Named after the year in which Steenberg was established, Bistro 1682 serves up the tapas and bistro-style dining. We recommend you tuck into a delicious breakfast paired with some of the farm’s best MCC bubbly 1682 Brut for a decadent start to the day.

Beer Route Cape Town


While Cape Town is known as wine country, it also has a long, rich history of brewing beer. Discover this heritage along with the burgeoning craft beer culture in the Mother City on the The Cape Town Beer Route by Coffeebeans Routes. This half-day tour takes you on a journey through Cape Town beer culture and stories, from traditional South African beer brewing history and techniques, through emerging craft beer culture right through to mainstream beer production and mega-scale. The tour includes a visit to the oldest commercial brewery in the country, the Newlands Brewery, where you’ll explore brewing history and style in the original buildings, before touring the modern production line. Then it is on to sampling some of the city’s fines brews.
