Living on the Edge – The Best Happy Hour View in Cape Town
Cape Town is a city blessed with rich natural beauty almost at every turn. Table Mountain looms high above the city, a constant companion for any visitor. While it’s easy to find a nice, picturesque spot for a happy hour cocktail, arguable the best location is at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa. Table Mountain is part of the much larger Cape Peninsula that also includes the range known as the Twelve Apostles on the Atlantic side. Occupying a prime piece of real estate near Camps Bay, the swanky Twelve Apostles Hotel provides guests and visitors alike with stunning views of the ocean and nearby Lion’s Head Mountain.
It was my first day in Cape Town and I didn’t know what to expect. But the beautiful sunset over the water, casting shadows on the massive mountain peaks had me hooked immediately. Sure the food and drinks at the hotel are good, but the view is what brings people back time and time again.

Azure, at the 12 Apostles!
I went for lunch at this oceanfront hotel, a quintessential Cape Town classic, and while course after course was carefully conceived, beautifully presented, and above all, delicious, nothing compared to the drama and flair that accompanied the spoons of mango sorbet palate cleansers. The servers announced the course, and voilá — dry ice enveloped the platters, leaving us to hunt for our portions through the hazy fog. Brilliant.
