Trevyn and Julian’s ideal day in the city .....
Before starting the day in the city, we’ll enjoy breakfast in our garden with incredible fresh produce from the sublime Olive Branch Deli in the Lifestyle Centre. One coffee spot that can’t be beat is Run Rabbit Run Coffee Roastery at Conrad Hicks’ The
Bijou Blacksmith. We love to visit the Zeitz MOCAA for the most incredible architectural reinvention of an important building by Thomas Heatherwick, with work by some of our favourite artists like Nandipha Mntambo, Athi-patra Ruga and Mohau Modisakeng.lunchtime calls for sneaking away from work to meet friends at the Yard – a grand foodie emporium by the legendary Abigail Bisogno with fusion Indian and luxurious leather banquette seating; In the evening, when we aren’t at home, you will find us having a sublime cocktail at the Outrage of Modesty;
Dinners are always special when we are at the Shortmarket Club - as the atmosphere and service feels like being back at The Ivy in London, but the food is super fresh, inventive and even better; after dinner we might visit the Cape Town Comedy Club or Jazz in the Crypt in Saint George’s Cathedral – both world class venues.
