A new plush poolside rooftop-bar opening in the heart of Cape Town soon


Situated inside two beautifully restored heritage buildings in the heart of the Mother City is a new designer hotel called Gorgeous George set to officially open its doors next week Friday on April 19th. The gorgeous new downtown hotel will also come complete with a “swanky jungle-themed” rooftop bar named Gigi Rooftop.

Gorgeous George will be a design-focused hotel with a contemporary take on South African heritage and its plush counterpart, Gigi Rooftop, will be a full-day eatery headed by chef Guy Bennett (previously of Franschhoek’s The Restaurant at Grande Provence), which will launch on a yet-to-be-confirmed date following the hotel’s grand opening.


Gigi Rooftop restaurant and bar will be situated at a posh position on the sixth floor and will offer breakfast and remain open through to dinner and drinks. The Rooftop will also feature a swimming pool and outdoor bar area for warmer days or sundowners.

Gorgeous George is set to open on 19 April at 118 Saint George’s Mall, with Gigi Rooftop to follow shortly after. For more information on the Gorgeous George hotel and to make reservations visit their website right here.

Slap bang in the hustle of Cape Town’s historic downtown is Gorgeous George. Luxuriously reimagined by merging Art Deco and New Edwardian 1940s heritage buildings into one, Gorgeous George blends 18th-century grandeur with a raw industrial edge. . .
