There’s something exciting about finding the new summer ‘spot’…you start imagining lazy, sunny, cocktail-drenched afternoons. My newest find not only promises decadent, languid Summer afternoons, but sultry evenings too as it sports the most incredible 360 degree rooftop view.

VIP Skybar-597

Situated on the rooftop of the five-star Cape Royale Luxury Hotel & Spa, the VIP Sky Bar features a heated pool, two bars and unique table service packages. It’s the perfect setting for its exclusive champagne specials, delicious sushi and daily cocktail specials.

I attended the launch a few weeks back – the menu for the evening included sushi and oysters, while Peroni and Nitida’s Methode Cap Classique was the evening’s drink of choice.

St Yves launches Summer 2012 / 2013 – HOTT!

St Yves Beach Club in Camps Bay hosted it’s official grand re-opening on 13 October 2012 … and it looks gorgeous. I can see myself go from lazy sunny afternoons drinking cocktails to crazy summer nights dancing to tjoons from DJ’s Dale Parker, Shaun Duvet, PH and Gareth Kenward.

The launching evening featured a fashion show – hosted by Beachcult, Hout Couture organic wooden sunglasses and shamballa style jewellery from Crystal Creations™. LOVE the Beachcult summer range – it’s perfect for a beach to club wear.

I suggest you swing by the St Yves Halloween party this Saturday, 27 October to check it all out. Shaun Duvet, Gareth Kenward and Dale Parker will spin the decks – expect spooky prices, as well as a tickey giveaway to the Steve Aoki & Nicky Romero concert at Thunder City. R100 get you in the doot (and remember to make an effort with your dress. Leave the skanky flip flop and raggedy daisy dukes at home).
