City Bowl

The heart of the Mother City


Lying in the welcoming fold of Table Mountain, aptly taking the shape of a bowl, the City Bowl is considered the heart of Cape Town. Confined by the harbour, ocean and mountain it has become a self-contained hub of activity ranging from the residential suburbs along the mountain’s base to the high-rise offices that face the harbour. The city bowl is overrun by city-slicking commuters in the day and glass-clinking socialites at night.

Interesting and diverse suburbs surround the city bowl, from Higgovale’s modernized villas to De Waterkant’s bright and colourful semi-detached houses. Tamboerskloof offers easy access to the Mother City’s vibrant nightlife in Long Street, while Gardens houses the Company’s Gardens, a verdant oasis amid the concrete city dotted with rose gardens and inhabited by squirrels. The South African National Gallery features inspiring collections of artwork from African, British, French and Flemish origin.

The City Bowl Market sells irresistible treats that will tempt and torment any foodie. From freshly baked bread, croissants, sushi and bagels to bacon-and-egg rolls, ciabattas and cheeses. Browse the stalls, taste craft beers and local wines, make the trip up Table Mountain with the cable car or set out for a full moon hike up Lion’s Head.
