Often us Capetonians tend to hibernate in Winter and complain about the cold but that’s no excuse when we have a number of amazing restaurants with inviting, warm interiors and fireplaces on offer! Here are three hot spots for you to check out…
RICKS CAFÉ AMÉRICAIN
This ever popular restaurant has a large menu with plenty of delicious meals and cocktails on offer. The restaurant is situated in a beautiful old Victorian building and the various inter-leading rooms have a wonderful ambiance with a touch of Casablanca inspired decor. With three fireplaces on offer, this is a perfect winter haven!
I was invited to a fantastic evening at HQ last month and got to enjoy their delicious signature sirloin steak and salad. The service was outstanding and we got to listen to fabulous swinging tunes by the talented Ricky Botsis. HQ has a sophisticated yet warm ambiance with lovely, plush lounge area. This is a fabulous spot to escape the winter blues and listen to live music. Be sure to follow HQ on facebook to keep updated with all of their weekly specials and live music happenings.
KLOOF STREET HOUSE
This is another brilliant restaurant with a unique and inviting interior. The eclectic decor and fireplaces create a cosy and homely feel. They have a lovely bar and lounge area which is great for after work drinks or to end the evening off. And the food is superb of course!
