Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Mercury Live & Lounge
Despite its slightly frayed appearance, Mercury is an extremely popular performance space, particularly of the rock 'n' roll variety; drinks specials abound, so come enjoy the buzz and watch some serious performers bring down the house.
Cape Bike
Get your adrenaline pumping and see the country surrounding Cape Town on the back of a serious Harley Davidson with Cape Bike Travel...
Newlands Cricket Ground
Newlands Cricket Ground is one of the most beautiful cricket stadiums in the world; stop, stare or spectate.
Baxter Theatre
The Baxter Theatre is arguably more about the architecture than the performing arts that take place inside it, but the campus-based building is still a great place for culture vultures to take in a wide range of productions.
Rhodes Memorial
Built in mock Athenian architecture, the Rhodes Memorial affords views out beyond the Cape Flats towards the distant distant Helderberg and Hottentots Holland Mountains. If that doesn't take your breath away, nothing will.
Table Mountain
As Cape Town's most iconic sight, you don't need to 'visit' Table Mountain to appreciate its awe-inspiring beauty.
Castle of Good Hope
The Castle of Good Hope has everything you'd expect from a good fort, including a surrounding moat and dungeon, and it has great views of the area to boot.
Hoerikwaggo Trail
The Hoerikwaggo Trail isn't exactly 'roughing it in the wild', but it's still recommended for enthusiastic hikers.
MannaBay
Whatever it takes to unwind, you'll find it here at MannaBay, along with spoil-you-rotten service and a majestic view.
River Manor Stellenbosch
River Manor Stellenbosch is a beautiful, old-worldy boutique hotel in Cape Town's wine lands which is a perfect base for exploring the wineries
Armoury Boxing
Staying in shape is a priority amongst Capetonians-they have beaches and catwalks to prepare for. While there are loads of places to join the queue for the treadmill, this is easily the most authentic of gyms in Cape Town.
Newlands Rugby Stadium
Newlands Rugby Stadium is the second-oldest of its kind in the world, and has been host to a number of international games during its time.
Boulders Penguin Colony
Boulders Penguin Colony is a remarkable site for those into nature; if you can't go to Antarctica, come here instead.
Shortmarket St.
Home to Cape Town's best-known flea market, Shortmarket Street is buzzing every day of the week.
