The City Bowl by Night:
The sunset in Cape town is quite remarkable. With waning of daylight hours, soft hues cast themselves across clouds welcoming coming of night. Cape Town transforms, donning another mask as city’s landscape begins to twinkle.
The Cable Car Road
A drive along Cable Car Road is a little daring for some, particularly at this hour, but it is well worth it! It is possible to see from this vantage point why Cape Town's CBD is known as City Bowl. As your gaze moves from left to right, Lion’s Head contrasts sharply with backdrop of a golden sunset, as you pan further to right; torso of this giant beast becomes apparent. From Cable Car Road, you can literally see complete outline of a resting lion guarding his concrete jungle; a good time to take a snap!
The nightlife in Cape Town comes in many shapes and sizes, here are a few possibilities:
There is warmth and feeling to Mama Africa. This authentic African restaurant, dressed in traditional African décor and serving continents cultural cuisine, is always a lively place. You can often catch Marimba music and live African bands and bar is not your average elbow parking lot either; it has been customised in rather a reptilian fashion. But you need to see that for yourself!
Situated at beginning of afore-mentioned garden walk, at same intersection of Adderley and Wale Streets, lies Crypt. Under St George's Cathedral, Crypt, which was built in 1898, is now haunt of Jazz enthusiasts and playground of dining room damsels from Cape Town city bowl.
After being closed for years, Crypt's curved arches, leaded window panes and plaques commemorating dearly departed have been revealed for your eyes to behold. Actually used for choir practice and as a clergy vestry, Crypt provides big breakfasts, cosy couches and a surprisingly warm atmosphere. Do make a calling!
If you decide to pay Cape Town a visit, remember Cape Town bears two distinct faces; a mask worn by day and a mask worn by night. Whichever one you choose, it is all up to you.
