The Waiting Room
This central Cape Town rooftop bar is a chill lounge playing music like downtempo, funk, hip hop, dub, jazz, reggae, breaks and soul music. Wear what you like this at this place anything goes. There is a dance floor if you are in the mood, if not you can just lounge on one of the comfy couches and enjoy the view. It’s located in Long Street which is the party street of Cape Town so this is also a prime pre-drinks spot.
For this one, booking is essential, once you reach it you will well understand why. This sky scraper turned hotel had some innovative developers that thought (and rightfully so) that a roof top bar would be the perfect finishing touch to their gorgeous five star hotel. With a view of the entire city, the ocean and Table Mountain, this is not one to miss.
