The Bascule Bar
May 11, 2018
Forget Table Mountain and the Kruger National Park – believe it or not the hottest tourist attraction in South Africa is the modernist V & A Waterfront. Perhaps this is because of spots like The Bascule. Located in the refined colonial chic of the amazing Cape Grace Hotel (check out the Johannesburg Grace for more of the same sophistication) it boasts the largest whisky selection in South Africa – a classy touch more than matched by the extraordinary marina views from the lounge. Upmarket tourists and moneyed Stellenbosch wine farmers sip Jameson and Boschendal on the plush leather sofas and decide whether to stay all night or hit the town. Either way, they do it with Grace.
