Father’s Day in the Mother City
This Father’s Day, you can say it like you mean it, with a range of luxury Cape Town treats to make his special day an occasion to remember.
Head off to the Cape Quarter’s Market Bar, for some father and son time, sipping on craft beer and chewing the fat. This establishment is offering a range of eight of Boston Breweries finest blends for the tasting along with a range of all the usual suspects to enjoy. Afterwards you can meander through the Village Market for a man-size meal and some lively tunes. Pure in Hout Bay also has a great range of craft beers available to try.
If Dad’s tastes are a little more refined, or you happen to be a daughter, how about treating him to a Champagne breakfast at Chez Shiraz followed by a round of golf?
Does your dad prefer getting his hands dirty? Then treat him to the original gourmet burger at Gibson’s Gourmet Burgers and Ribs at the V&A Waterfront where he can tuck in to a mouth watering burger – with both hands – or try their world class ribs and wipe his plate clean.
Luxury Cape Town lunches are never a problem in the Mother City, and the Vineyard Hotel, Cape Grace and Azure are just a few of your choices. The legendary winelands offer a large selection of fine dining venues, including a few gourmet braai options.
If eating and drinking are too ‘ho-hum’ for your hero, then how about a helicopter flip over the city, a shark-cage dive in Gansbaai, or a Harley Davidson trip into the Countryside? A trip to the Rugby museum or even the Newlands stadium for a game is a great choice for sports fans too.
A daytrip to Langa for an informative and informal cultural experience will give him something to chat to the lads about at the club, as will a day of deep-sea fishing at Gordon’s Bay.
Whether you decide to go for broke or take it easy this Father’s Day, the gift that he will cherish the most is the luxury of spending time with his family, so ensure that you put aside some time to make your dad feel special this Father’s Day.
