Wembley Square is a bespoke shopping and dining venue nestled beneath the mountainside suburb of Vredehoek in upper reaches of the Cape Town CBD. A short walk from Parliament, the Company's Garden, the South African Jewish Museum, the District Six Museum and other notable attractions, this collection of 3 contemporary-styled, energy efficient buildings is very much the new Cape Town shopping experience, focused primarily on lifestyle and health.
Shopping with a fit difference
The retail space is filled with interesting bespoke shops specializing in items such as fitness clothing, there is also the Cape town home of internationally-renowned skin care product “Dermalogica” here, an apothecary and a wellness store. The dining options are plentiful and once again a focus on health. Here healthy eating is the norm, with the restaurants all serving up delicious, fresh and wholesome eats. There is a fine diversity of choice here catering for almost all tastes in food. For those who prefer beer and pizza, look no further than the Wembley Tap – a craft beer house and pizzeria offering fine local beers and typical bar fare. It is a wonderfully “vibey” place to relax after a tough day’s sightseeing.
The “who’s who”
The patrons here are a mix of creative types, many of whom work in the plentiful office space in the Wembley Square buildings and surrounding areas, trendy locals enjoying the gym and refined diners interested in exploring some of the unique offerings served up in the restaurants here. The Wembley Square space is a very uniquely Capetonian shopping experience well worth exploring. Be sure to check with management for the events calendar, as the complex often plays host to fashion shoots, parties and film shoots – all very entertaining.
