The Inside Guide sums it up nicely: "This hidden gin bar is where the insiders go, come sundown. Tucked neatly behind Honest Chocolate Café in the armpit of the Commune 1 Gallery, this dedicated gin bar, like its chocolately sibling, is all about quality rather than quantity."

Popular quirky cocktail bar among a string of popular bars and eateries that have recently sprouted in Bree Street. Good snacks. Minutes away by car, or you can walk - but you will no doubt need a taxi back!

This public garden has existed since the 17th century, when it was used to grow produce for the ships passing the Cape. The complex includes the Iziko South African Museum, the Iziko National Gallery, an aviary, the popular Company's Garden Restaurant and the planetarium. Walking through the gardens, one passes the Houses of Parliament and at the bottom end find the St George's Cathedral.

A steep but relatively easy hike up a well-trodden path (under an hour for the fit), this route spirals up from the car park right to the top of Lion's Head, from where one has spectacular 306-degree views of the Atlantic seaboard, Cape Town and Table Mountain. Ideal for a picnic at the top. At full moon in warm weather, there is a constant stream of hikers with torches going to the top at night - when one looks up from the city, it looks like a string of jewels around the peak.

A steep climb, an hour up for the fit and 2 or more for those less so, this is a wonderful trek up to the Table Top. The path is all stepped and busy at peak times. A rewarding way to reach the top of Table Mountain and look over the splendour of Cape Town. At the top, there is a restaurant and bar. If you are tired, take the cable car down.
