Harking back to an era where life was an altogether more laidback and genteel affair, The Grand in Camps Bay brings a renewed sense of old-fashioned sophistication to Cape Town.
Dressed in shades of dusty pink and rich rose hues, The Grand’s sense of nostalgia and relaxed elegance is a welcome reprieve from the ever-buzzing Camps Bay strip. Like its phenomenally successful predecessor, The Grand Hotel in Plettenberg Bay, Cape Town’s Grand is about pleasure without pretence, style without sham – the go-to place for a pink martini and no-frills food that’s redolent with flavour.
The moment you step through its doors, you’re transported to a bygone era of understated grandeur and casual sophistication. It’s the kind of place where you’d imagine Marlene Dietrich seducing audiences with her devil-may-care attitude or where Wallace Simpson might step through the doors at any given moment.
A mere stone’s throw from Cape Town’s own Copacabana, The Grand embraces its position in the heart of the cosmopolitan action of Camps Bay. Step off the beach and into the upstairs cocktail bar and enjoy the strains of Edith Piaf while watching the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean. Or book a late table for dinner and enjoy innovative gourmet offerings and all the irresistible offerings of the Champagne lifestyle.
