Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Oude Libertas Amphitheatre
Oude Libertas Amphitheatre is an outdoor venue with a signature sophisticated sound; enjoy choir recitals, acapella groups, jazz and opera.
District Six Museum
While it doesn't make for easy viewing, the District Six Museum remembers the site of Apartheid destruction - and it's a must on any visitor's itinerary.
Kalk Bay Theatre
Size isn't everything as this intimate scaled-down theatre proves.
Muratie
Muratie is a romantic winery with a great history; take a cellar tour to learn all about it.
Labia
Labia is home to South Africa's oldest-surviving cinema and comes complete with old world-style surroundings. Alcohol can still be bought to take in with you too, which is always nice.
Cape Point Vineyards
It may not be on the same scale as Boekenhoutskloof, but the wine tasting available at Cape Point Vineyards is no less enjoyable. So enjoyable, in fact, that we cannot remember our last after one-too-many glasses of Lord-knows-what vintage.
Franschhoek Estate
The Graham Beck Franschhoek Estate is hugely popular for tastings - with its sparkling wine a hot favourite.
Theatre on the Bay
Theatre on the Bay is a delightfully intimate theatre that puts on a variety of West End-style musicals and smaller-scale dramas, comedies and revues.
Groot Constantia Wine Museum
If this wine estate was good enough for Napoleon, then Groot Constantia Homestead and Wine Museum is certainly good enough for us.
Boekenhoutskloof
Whether you can pronounce it or not is irrelevant; Boekenhoutskloof is a historic wine estate that hosts tastings that would please even the most discerning connoisseur.
Vergelegen
A little off the beaten track, but definitely worth it for the chance to sample some of the region's best wine; the stunning surroundings and Cape Dutch architecture add to its splendour.
Solms-Delta
Solms-Delta offers an intimate tasting experience followed up by a picnic on the grounds. Wash everything down with wine, naturally.
