Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Cape Quarter
Combining shopping, eating and entertainment, the recently-opened fashion piazza of Cape Quarter is a magnet for style mavens.
Unknown Union
Aesthetes and die-hard designistas will love the interiors at Unknown Union, which almost outshine the products on sale -- almost.
Bree Street
As one of the city's hippest streets, Bree Streets is where you'll find the trendy-wendies hanging out shopping and then gossiping over coffee afterward.
De Waterkant
Home to Cape Quarter, Cape Town's coolest shopping centre, De Waterkant is a colourful shopping district bursting with character.
Woodstock
As one of Cape Town's oldest suburbs, Woodstock will please even the most discerning shopper with its great variety of shops.
Green Point
Despite being something of a residential area, Green Point is a hive of activity and has become one of the city's trendiest areas to shop.
Fringe Arts on Kloof
Former pop-up gallery The Fringe Arts gets a permanent shop on Cape Town's Kloof Street, stocking handmade African arts and accessories. 
Roeland Street
Offering small boutiques and independent stores, Roeland Street is perfect for shopping and then stopping for a coffee or snack at one of the many cafés.
V&A Waterfront
Flanked by the Atlantic on one side and Table Mountain on the other, the V&A Waterfront shopping mall provides a picturesque day out for those in serious need of a retail fix.
Kloof Street 19
Located at the base of Table Mountain, Kloof Street is a steep street flanked by old-fashioned buildings on both sides and is popular with young shoppers and clubbers.
Long Street
Often referred to as the party capital of the Mother City, Long Street is also home to a slew of stylish shops for those wanting to punish the plastic.
Loop Street
One-way Loop Street runs parallel to Long Street, and is brimming with restaurants, bars and of course shops. If you're into the art scene, this area is right up your street.
