I Love Cape Town Central Because …
Hi, I’m Jason Rodwell from the Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel in Cape Town Central.
Cape Town Central IS BEST KNOWN FOR Long Street and the nightlife surrounding it.
OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT Green Market Square.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO spend time in Nature, walking / hiking.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO stay indoors, eat good food and be in good company.
I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS January / February, BECAUSE the weather is amazing and its the best time for festivals.
FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST Royale Eatery on Long Street.
MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Cafe Paradiso, TRY THE veal.
BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM 24 hour food at the Engen Garage off Long Street, they are open 24 hours and have a Woolies and take away options.
MY FAVOURITE socialising SPOT IS Rafikis.
FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY Assembly or Mercury Live.
IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO The Shack.
Cape Town Central’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS it wouldn’t be a secret if i told you …
MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS go to outdoor music festivals.
FOR SOME LIVE MUSIC, I LIKE TO GO TO The Assembly on 61 Harrington Street.
TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO spend loads of time in nature “recharging”.
IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY Kamakazie Canyon, enquire at Abseil Africa.
MY FAVOURITE WALK / HIKE IS The Pipe Track on Table Mountain.
MY FAVOURITE clothing SHOP IS Hemporium.
MY FAVOURITE sunset WATCHING SPOT IS Signal Hill.
IF YOU’RE HERE IN January / February, JOIN IN THE FUN AT the Origin Festival.
TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS Kirstenbosch Gardens.
BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS the Scratch Patch at the V&A Waterfront.
WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO go up and down the Cableway (Table Mountain).
THE MOST UNUSUAL THING I SEE HERE ARE the characters on Long street.
WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I do fundraising for our Daddy Feed Me project, giving back into underprivileged communities.
I Love Cape Town Central BECAUSE in my opinion Cape Town is one of the most amazing cities in the world.
Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel
Staying in the Daddy Long Legs Hotel is like being part of an interactive art exhibition. Daddy Long Legs redefines the travel experience by offering a space that is as much a creative expression as it is a clean, comfortable place to lay your head. “It’s about funky, affordable accommodation”, says owner Jody Aufrichtig. He adds that Daddy Long Legs is, “a place where you can meet people, have fun whilst you are at it, and – get an awesome night’s rest. Staying at a Daddy Long Legs gives you the opportunity to absorb the creative spirit of Cape Town without leaving your room, so just lie back and enjoy!”
