the Cape Quarter – 72 Waterkant Street, Green Point, Cape Town: Capetonians like to think of the Cape Quarter as Cape Town’s best kept secret!
Home decor, art and artefacts, fashion, beauty, health and lifestyle related stores all delivered in a unique Cape Malay architecture. This is where the best of Cape Town people are drawn together, attracted by the authentic ambience of great restaurants and eateries, shops and offices. This is the essence of Cape Town cool. Cape Quarter’s central piazza and ingenious use of space, as well as its mix of contemporary and authentic design and tenancies, has commendably preserved Cape Town’s historical heritage for modern usage.
Green Point is an area of Cape Town that enjoys the rare luxury of protection from the notorious Cape Doctor – whose south easterly wind buffers the city during the summer months. Many guesthouses, B&Bs, sidewalk cafes and stylish shops keep the area abuzz during the day; at night the atmosphere is charged with energy from the numerous bars and nightspots. This is the trendiest Cape Town suburb – and at the heart of this is Cape Quarter.
Cape Quarter enjoys great proximity to the busy city centre and the popular Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. It is also easily accessed by foot – or via taxi or bus – from Cape Town’s best known Atlantic seaboard beaches and hotels. Secure on-site parking is offered and the building is covered by full time security and CCTV surveillance.
As it is with the locals in the know, Cape Quarter’s relaxed retail environment with its vibey outdoor eateries, authentic hand crafted design and stylish cobbled courtyard will convince you too that Cape Quarter is, in fact, Cape Town’s best kept secret – see you at Cape Quarter soon!
