Date Night is Not Dead – Particularly not in Cape Town
A luxury Cape Town vacation is the perfect touch to take date night to an entirely new level. With a range of unforgettable activities which are sure to keep the romantic flames alive, a date night in Cape Town can be a rendezvous in paradise!
Dinner and a Movie
Candlelit dinners are a traditional take on a great evening out. Try one of these classic eateries for a taste of unpretentious luxury that will linger long after you’ve called for the bill:
True Italic offers a relaxed brasserie-style vibe, freshly made Tuscan fare and wine to match on Bree Street in the city centre.
Murano Bar’s plush purples and velvet décor present the perfect scenario for a romantic evening where sipping on bubbly and shucking oysters is seen in a whole new hue.
HQ in Shortmarket Street has an official date night offering on Tuesdays with tender steaks, chips and salad to be enjoyed against a backdrop of musical meanderings from their in-house lounge singer.
Take romance to the rooftops at the Pink Flaming Cinema located on the very top floor of the Grand Daddy Hotel in Long Street. Drinks, popcorn, sweets and a cosy blanket in winter all are part of the scene at this unique venue.
Jazz romanticists will swoon to the tunes of live sounds offered at The Piano Bar in De Waterkant, Kaleidoscope Café in Claremont or Hanover Street Jazz Club at Grand West Casino.
If conversation is not your forte, but music is your soul then head to the Marilla Bar in the CBD, or the Brass Bell in Kalk Bay for an evening of fun and laughter behind the mic at one of their regular karaoke evenings.
Try Something Different
The Ice Station at GrandWest is a fun and active way to melt your beloved’s heart. This Olympic sized ice rink is the perfect way to work up an appetite before enjoying one of the many restaurants and casino on site.
Head up Lions Head for a romantic moonlit picnic and glorious views over the city lights. For a day time date with a difference, you can lose yourselves among the natural splendour of hiking trails around Cape Point, Devil’s Peak and the Spes Bona Forest above Kalk Bay.
A sunset boat cruise from the V&A Waterfront is a scintillating way to set sail on a romantic evening for two. The trip includes a glass of bubbly to toast the end of the day and dinner at a restaurant afterwards.
Day Time Dating in the Mother City
Take the romance to another level on a hot air balloon ride over the winelands followed by a farm-to-table meal in Paarl, or go topless on the Hop on Hop Off bus and experience Cape Town seated closely beside your soul mate rather than behind the steering wheel of a car.
However you prefer to celebrate love in the Mother City, you are sure to find a luxury Cape Town activity that suits your style.
