What makes the Twelve Apostles

The Twelve Apostles Hotel is one of the jewels of Cape Town, offering exceptional dining with stunning views across the Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain and the eponymous Twelve Apostles mountain range.

Guests often start the evening at The Leopard Bar with an expertly-crafted cocktail. Due to its unrivalled vantage point, The Twelve Apostles is the last place in Cape Town to catch a glimpse of the sun as it sinks below the horizon over the Atlantic Ocean.

The bartenders at The Leopard Bar are famed for their knowledge and creative flair. They are able to mix any drink and can even invent something based on guests’ favourite flavours.

The Leopard Bar also offers wonderful experiences that will take you on a journey of tastes and textures. For gin aficionados, there is the Gin and Canapé Tasting Experience, which pairs delicious canapés with craft gins, while the Gin Making Experience encourages experimentation with gin, tonic and botanicals.

For brewing enthusiasts, the Craft Beer and Canapé Experience pairs gourmet canapés with craft beers and ciders. The Leopard Bar is the perfect spot for Tea by the Sea, the quintessential high tea with scones, pastries and sandwiches, overlooking the ocean.

The brand new Café Grill is a fantastic al fresco eatery that offers a casual menu throughout the day, so guests can enjoy breakfast, fresh salads, hamburgers or ‘catch of the day’.

The award-winning Azure Restaurant is a fine dining mecca, offering superb menus in elegant surroundings, and over the holiday season, it is the venue for a host of celebratory events. Christmas Eve Dining, with five indulgent courses, is perfect for festive family gatherings.

Azure takes the hard work out of Christmas Day with their Christmas Lunch Buffet, allowing guests to relax and enjoy a memorable holiday feast complete with all the trimmings. At the end of the year, revellers can see in 2018 in style with the New Year’s Rio Carnival, including a six-course dining extravaganza and plenty of bubbles with all the glamour and glitz of Brazil’s most famous event.

When returning home for Christmas, there really is no better place on the Cape to experience fine dining and lavish festivities with a South African flavour.
