The Daddy and Ray-Ban Get Together for a Good Time in the Shade

This summer, all the barmen in the Daddy Cool Bar and Sky Bar will be wearing Wayfarer and Aviator frames, preparing for the Ray-Ban “Rocking the Rooftop” party. Top musicians like the Dirty Skirts, JR, Toby2shoes, the Springbok Nude Girls and Die Heuwels Fantasties customised Ray-Ban Aviator or Wayfarer sunglasses.

Bubble Wrap: Fork Restaurant

I’ve always been a devoted fan of this relatively small eatery in town. I say small, but it can seat up to 60 guests split between two floors, so I guess it’s not that small. It gives the impression of a French bistro with bar stools, booths, comfy couches and dishcloths as napkins.

What are your New Year’s Plans?

Ring out the old … Grand Daddy style! Our Lost on Long party is going down in a very big way tomorrow night and tickets are selling fast. The R150 gets you into our spectacular New Year’s bash and includes a free glass of bubbly at the door.

Summer in the City

Only two weeks into December and already we’re feeling the heat – sometimes we can even see the steam rise off Long Street and sunset can’t come soon enough. It’s getting hotter in Cape Town by the day … and we’re not only referring to the rising mercury.

“Good food, good service, and professional.” Just a few of the words our visitors use to describe the Grand Daddy Hotel experience – and our Restaurant, which has recently been refurbished, gets the same response!
