Camps Bay is the Chelsea of Cape Town – the strip where the beautiful come to ogle and be ogled, watch the sunset and drink overpriced, colourful cocktails. There’s even a Made In Chelsea-esque reality show set in the area which somehow makes its London inspiration look like The Wire. Classic.
Café Caprice is the epitome of the Camps Bay lifestyle; sleek, good looking and arrogant, this is where the beautiful come to party. Sunday night is the big night at Caprice, so arrive early if you do choose to go, or prepare to queue (never!). Any other night of the week however, it’s the ideal spot to watch the sunset from the terrace sipping a cold Savannah or a Millionaire Baby, a lavish cocktail of Chambord, Grey Goose and Moët. Sunday nights you’re likely to be chatted up by the sons of wealthy South African businessmen pushing bottles of Grey Goose in your face whilst trying to explain why their dick and Cape Town is 'the' place to be in the world.
There’s a time for Café Caprice, it has its charms, and it is undoubtedly fun, but don’t expect to be wowed with its elegance when it’s busy.
