Winter tends to mean a period of hibernation to most Capetownians with attendance at Club Duvet peaking in popularity but this winter rather than letting yourself go come and join us at the Grand Daddy Hotel for some sexy, saucy and as you shall see below highly beneficial for your health, salsa dancing!!

Winter warmers with Daddy

Winter in Cape Town means stormy weather, fireplaces, movies and hot beverages with beautiful warm sunny days in between. Winter also heralds the start of Cape Town’s spectacular winter specials which allows us locals and those special visitors, who know how much the Cape has to offer summer or winter, an opportunity to feast on some fabulous food and stay in some awesome places on a budget and The Grand Daddy Hotel is totally on board with this!!
