Where Would You Rather Be Wednesdays: top bars to visit in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
From the opulent settings of the One&Only Cape Town’s Vista Bar & Lounge at the V&A Waterfront and the trendy &Union in Bree Street, to the humble but hearty Slug & Lettuce in Long Street or the award-winning Tjing Tjing Bar in Longmarket Street, bars and taverns are the latest IT places to hang out at and the coolest places to be on your Hump Day in the Mother City.
It seems like you, our loyal followers and fans, agree, as you had this to say about Where You Would Rather Be last Wednesday:
“Den Anker, Belgian Kriekenbier in hand – I miss Cape Town!” – Suzanne Perrett
“In front of fireplace at Forries.” – Navomi Naidoo
“I would like to be at One and Only.” – Liezl Daniels
