Whats up at The Grand Daddy?

Send to Kindle
The Pink Flamingo

The Pink Flamingo

Is it too early in the week to be thinking about the weekend? We think not! So let’s get up to date with the next two weeks of funky, fun events that are happening at The Grand Daddy Hotel. In case you are unfamiliar with this hotel, The Grand Daddy is one of the hottest hotels  in Cape Town.

Not only are the staff warm and hospitable, but the penthouse trailer park, that is home to a collection of 7 vintage Airstream caravans all with the backdrop of Table Mountain, is a unique and inspiring venue that will be host to all of these events. And if you are concerned that the weather may be a bit dodge don’t worry the events will just move a few floors down and will be hosted in the Daddy Cool Bar (an equally cool place to find yourself in!).

And let me mention this first before you start to wonder how much this will cost you, these events are free of charge, yes you got that right – it isn’t everyday you can be entertained by some fantastic musical acts with no cover charge. But … let me remind you that you will need to settle your bar tab at the end of the evening …

Dave Ferguson rocks the roof on Friday (20 November) from 18h00 to 20h00 come and join your friends or organise a group from work to join you on the rooftop for sundowners and ease yourself into the weekend. With an ice cold beer or glass of wine in your hand you can let your hair down while Ferguson’s one man show entertains you by using only a harmonica, human beat-box, vocals and recording live loops of music which in turn is all created into a fabulous sound.

If you are unfamiliar with a’capella music then you definitely shouldn’t miss the musical act of D7 on Wednesday 25 November from 18h00 to 20h00, these guys are making waves with their fresh sounds. A’capella basically means that you sing unaccompanied (i.e. no backing tracks), these guys bring a new spin to a’capella with reworking old favourites (Michael Jackson) and new favourites (Goldfish) and putting their own spin to the music.

It’s fabulously entertaining and you will definitely have a great evening out with them on stage. Think beat-box, think up beat and think fresh harmonies!

The Pink Flamingo is dedicated to restoring the experience of cinema with this outdoor cinema. The Pink Flamingo is a Roof Top Cinema in Long Street, Cape Town. The cinema features cult classics, cartoons and family favorites. Tickets are R50 and it includes a cone of sweeties, a welcome drink and a choice between an Eskimo Pie, candy floss or popcorn. Now that is definitely a bargain.

If you’d like to snuggle up to someone special on a secure, comfy couch on the front row (it does fit up to 3 people) you can do so for only R200 and this includes all the goodies mention earlier as well as a selection of cold drinks in a private cooler box.

Screenings take place on Sunday and Thursday nights and all movies start at 19h30.
It is essential to book, so let me show you the line up for the upcoming weeks:

Sunday 15 November – Double Indemnity
Thursday 19 November – Cinema Paradiso
Sunday 22 November  – Karate Kid
Thursday 26 November – Breakfast at Tiffanys (re-run)

If you want to find out more about any of the above telephone The Grand Daddy Hotel on +27 (0)21 424 7247 or visit them at 38 Long Street, Cape Town.
