The Fugard Theatre
Started by Athol Fugard, South Africa's "greatest living playwright," this 320-seat theater transformed a historic District Six building into a vibrant cultural hub showcasing plays, musicals, movies, and book festivals. You can kill time before a show at the downstairs bar serving wines from some of the Cape’s best vineyards — and if you're in the area during the day, wander along Harrington and Caledon streets and try the unforgettable Dias Tavern, a beloved Portuguese eatery serving seafood and espetadas, beef skewers on an aromatic bay leaf stick. Just up Buitenkant Street is the Book Lounge, an independent bookshop famous for its readings by famous authors.
