Our meeting in the CBD ended early so we decided to pop to the Cape Grace for a quick drink. It wasn’t a tough decision, a chilled glass of wine at Bascule Whiskey, Wine & Cocktail Bar situated on the international yacht marina, certainly beats sitting in the traffic!
We arrived just after 4:00pm and Bascule was buzzing with what looked like informal business meetings, and a number of tourists soaking up the spectacular view of Table Mountain.
We only had time for a quick drink, but next time we will definitely order the Tapas. The prices were surprisingly reasonable and the portions looked much bigger than the average portion of Tapas. The speciality is the Bascule Burger, wagyu beef, truffled mushroom sauce, fries and roasted garlic aioli.
The service was a bit slow, but I don’t think anyone wants to rush when they’re enjoying the views and the perfect setting.
We were disappointed that you had to buy vouchers for the wireless connectivity. I can understand that they want to avoid the masses using their wifi for hours on end, but with the trend towards a mobile workforce I would have thought a 5 Star Hotel would at least offer a seamless wireless service.
Bascule opens daily at 10h00 for a great selection of tapas, and in the evening the sunlit terrace is transformed into a glamorous whiskey and cocktail bar!
You can’t beat these views! Secure your spot at Bascule, to mingle with the rich and famous for an hour or two, or just sit and flirt with the idea of this billionaire lifestyle!
