Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Taal Monument
The much-talked about Taal Monument is a cultural must-see, particularly if you've read up on on the criticism its received. Stop, stare and make up your own mind.
Waiting Room
Despite what it suggests in its name, there's not much waiting or sitting at The Waiting Room; in fact you'll be on your feet all night with a dance floor, a roster of regular DJ sessions and a bohemian 'throw-your-hands-in-the-air-like-you-just-don'
Vida e Caffe
Forget Starbucks: Cape Town shows us how chain coffee shops are down with outlets of Vida e Caffe that each have their own personality.
& Union
A sophisticated watering hole that is anything but hole-ish; its beer selection is beyond compare too.
Truth.Coffee
The stripped down interiors of Truth. coffeecult - yes, spelt like that - ensures that nothing distracts you from the main attraction. The coffee.
Royale Eatery
Let's face it; despite our insatiable appetites for the finer things in life sometimes all we want to get our chops around is a good burger. And when such cravings beckon, Royale Eatery provides.
Artscape
Artscape hosts both local and international musical productions within Apartheid-era architecture; with so much to take in, you won't know whether to look at the stage or your surroundings.
Rupert Museum
There's not much to say about the building itself, but focus is very much on the artwork at the Rupert Museum. Perhaps that is the way it should be.
Maynardville Open-Air Theatre
Enjoy the balmy summer nights at the Maynardville Open-Air Theatre, ice-cold refreshment in-hand of course.
Atlantic Adventures
'Scream if you wanna go faster' seems to be the motto at Atlantic Adventures, which offers excursion at breakneck speeds.
Kaskazi Kayak
Kaskazi Kayak offers guided tours along the Seaboard with two-hour trips or longer.
Frixion Adventures
Cliff-jumping and kloofing; only the brave need apply.
Franschhoek Motor Museum
Petrol heads will fall head-over-bumper for the Franschhoek Motor Museum, home to over 220 vehicles from a wide-ranging period of automotive history.
MannaBay
Whatever it takes to unwind, you'll find it here at MannaBay, along with spoil-you-rotten service and a majestic view.
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.
Cape Sidecar Adventures
See Cape Town from the view of a sidecar; odd but undeniably cool.
