Jeffrey's Bay, Restaurants

Die Walskipper


No Comments

I personally love the sea. I love places near the water, and when they offer light meals and drinks to go with the view, I know I’ve struck gold!

Die Walskipper” is a lovely beach bar & restaurant situated along the coast in South Africa’s Jeffrey’s Bay.

The restaurant is situated on Clapton’s Beach between Jeffreys Bay and Aston Bay where “locals” and visitors can enjoy a mouth-watering  array of seafood together with other South African dishes cooked to perfection on the coals.

It’s also a great place to have as a venue for special occasions such as weddings, office functions, birthday parties, club gatherings or any group event for which catering can be pre-arranged according to your special needs.

Bars & Pubs, Grahamstown

Prime


No Comments

Grahamstown is certainly a town in South Africa well-known for its nightlife. It’s been called a ‘student village’ as it houses the popular Rhodes University, so it’s no wonder there are countless bars, pubs and nightclubs to keep its young learners entertained!

We shot many bars, pubs & nightclubs while there, one of them being “Prime” at 63 New Street.

Prime offers the latest upmarket and trendy nightclub experience in Grahamstown. Previously known as Equilibrium (Est. 1999) and comprehensively revamped in Feb 2012, Prime has been providing the best in local, national and international talents to Grahamstown and the Eastern Cape for the past decade.

We had a lot of fun shooting this, and it’s definitely got us wanting to go back to Grahamstown soon!

I’m very blessed in that, through the shoots we do for Skybok, I get to travel to so many different places, meet so many different people and – best of all – see amazing things. I’m remembering now back to a place we filmed in Cape Town called Vovo Telo. It’s a trendy little bar at the waterfront and they are really well-known for their coffees and pastries. I also love their pizzas and artisan breads. I’ve realised that the coffee culture truly has grown both here and internationally. On the day we filmed their video profile, I just stuck to a peach iced tea. I love them and BOS is my new favourite make! How about you? Are you a coffee fiend?

I always like to blog about the more interesting places we shoot for Skybok.net……..and, well, there’s no doubt that Zingela Archery in Jeffrey’s Bay is one of them!

It’s hidden along the R102 between Humansdorp and Jeffrey’s Bay in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, and is a very cool spot once you arrive.

I was certainly introduced to a whole new world I never knew existed when we came to shoot their video profile for them.

A fantastic place and a pleasure filming it!

I’ve come to learn that it is, in fact, a huge sport with a massive amount of people who love it.

In my opinion it’s a nice hobby and certainly after filming these people doing it, I paid more attention to the archery at The Olympics!

Here are some other blog posts about Zingela Archery from popular blogs:

Kalk Bay Theatre

This quaint 78-seater theatre located in Kalk Bay, Cape Town, was actually originally an old Dutch Reformed Church.

It was built in 1876 and is a heritage protected building.

Going there to shoot for Skybok was super – we got great weather and shooting their video didn’t take too long.

I personally love the red interior and the upstairs where patrons can eat dinner before the show.

I think it’s a super idea – dinner and a show at the same venue.

The theatre is constantly showing new and popular theatre pieces….and the idea is that patrons arrive from 6:30pm and, after reserving their theatre seats, are directed upstairs to the restaurant.

There is a set menu and the food is mainly served before the show but drinks and dessert are served after the performance.

Patrons make their way down to the theatre when the show is due to start.

Drinks may be taken into the theatre but there is no service in the theatre during the show.

We loved the owners – very friendly and professional people.

Here is their website if you’re interested in finding out more about the theatre or the shows which are currently showing there (you will also see Skybok’s logo featured on the website, directing visitors to check out their video profile, which is really nice!) —–>  THE KALK BAY THEATRE
