The Silo Rooftop bar in the ever-expanding Silo District, is arguably one of the best places to enjoy a sundowner, not just in Cape Town – but in the world.
It offers a relaxed, easy-dining experience, poolside lounging and a glass of bubbly or a classic cocktail, as you soak up the last of the day’s light or enjoy a stunning sunset.
The view is outstanding too, so be sure to take your smart phone or camera for some sunset snaps, glass of the good stuff in hand.
With a prior reservation, the public is most welcome to enjoy this cool spot. Please be advised, however, that the Silo Rooftop is weather dependent.
The Silo Rooftop is open daily (weather-permitting), from 11am – 7pm.
