You know when you visit your best friend a few provinces over and she’s been there a (long) while but she doesn’t know where the coolest spots are still? Yeah, that is a thing in my life. I got you tho, because I know…

When in Cape Town you (like the locals) always want a view of the mountain – no matter where you are. Even better if the space you are occupying is high up in the sky and can offer you spectacular views.

Some restaurants try to attain that rooftop vibe by installing floor to ceiling windows to capitalize on views – but… I however prefer breathing in fresh air, feel the wind in my hair. The perfect rooftop venue for me has to offer some shelter from the elements without obstructing the views; be comfortable, but keep it classy and lay on a food, drink and music experience that matches the effortless ‘cool’ of looking down on the bustling city streets.

Now I can tell you about 180 Lounger in the heart of Cape Town. The space atop the 16th floor of The Terraces building on the trendy restaurant strip of Bree Street delivers panoramic views of UNESCO World Heritage Site and official member of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Table Mountain, as well as down towards the Foreshore where luxury cruise liners from around the world pull into the majestic Table Bay harbour.

180 Lounger is more than an always-on party hotspot but rather a customizable multi-use event space which offers a pristine location for corporate events, business functions, product launches or private functions and an ‘out-of-the-box’ meeting venue or working facility.
