Cape Town City Centre at a glance
City Bowl / City Of Cape Town
Cape Town is a coastal city on the southern tip of South Africa where worlds collide. This is where business, politics, tourism and pleasure all meet. Cushioned between the ocean and Table Mountain National Park is the City Bowl. The area is called home by a diverse community, houses head offices for both global and local corporations as well as Government parastatals. The City Bowl bustles with activity and diverse, unique retail opportunities abound. Food enthusiasts have a haven here too as many of the city's small alleys offer charming little eateries and coffee shops satisfying an endless array of gastronomic needs and wants.
On the first Thursday of every month the streets come alive in the evening with music, dance and a vibe of its own. Many of the art galleries, boutiques and markets stay open until 9pm creating a unique, local, cultural experience. https://first-thursdays.co.za
