The Bay final.f4v_snapshot_00.24_[2012.11.14_09.36.07] The Bay Hotel Camps Bay Cape Town Skybok Video Profiling South AfricaLocated along the beachfront in Cape Town, South Africa, The Bay Hotel is one of Cape Town’s top hotels which prides itself on sterling service while offering its guests a wide range of facilities and stunning views.

Renowned as a haven for romantics, leisure is its catchword, from rejuvenating spa treatments to the convenience of a heavenly deli, unique cocktail bar and beachfront café. I personally loved their cigar lounge and bar with its cool atmosphere and breathtaking views.

You can celebrate these special events at the intimate “Celebration Table” or “Private Deck” overlooking a sapphire sea. They have fully-equipped meeting and events venues which are available to suit every occasion, including the historic “Rotunda” ballroom for glittering parties and flawless weddings.

The Bay Hotel is superbly designed with only 78 rooms and suites offering 5-star luxury in an unsurpassed setting. No less than four hotel pools with expansive sun decks offer superlative views of the Atlantic Ocean and majestic Lion’s Head.

They are especially great for venues to host parties & functions or even for business meetings. Although they have venues in both Portugal & in Zimbabwe, in Cape Town, they have two. These are namely, “The Grand Cafe and Rooms” in Camps Bay & “The Grand Cafe & Beach” in Granger Bay, also along the coastline.

Tjing Tjing


No Comments

One of Cape Town’s favourite night clubs, Tjing Tjing is a rooftop bar located just off Longstreet, Cape Town.

We got to shoot on an absolutely packed night!

It was pumping and the video came out exceptionally.

I love their colour scheme and ‘attic’ feel.

The owner is friendly and professional and I can really recommend hiring this place out as a venue for a birthday party, corporate function or business meeting.

It has a festive atmosphere and shooting their official video profile was a dream.

I enjoyed editing this and doing the voice over particularly because I enjoy the venue so much and I wanted to do Ilse Koekemoer (owner)  justice on her fabulous club!

Coming from Cape Town I’m used to my fair share of nightlife ………….. but Friar Tucks was something else altogether!

A classic nightclub in the heart of Grahamstown, South Africa, with a massive dance floor and 2 bars, you won’t be coming home until the early hours of the morning!

It’s been voted as South Africa’s number 1 nightclub.

I absolutely loved the vibe at this venue………. it was packed with students and everyone was having a great time!

I love the music – they often have popular DJs in for the night.

Listen to DJ Skullet’s mix from when he played there in August last year:

Bordering the waters of Kalk Bay’s gorgeous ocean, The Brass Bell is actually a lot bigger than I realised.

Going there to shoot their profile was enlightening because apart from the main restaurant that we all know and love (The Bikini Deck), there is also the Cabin Bar & Restaurant, The Water’s Edge Restaurant, The Pavilion and the Izannes fine dining restaurant!

Shooting was an absolute dream; the owner is very friendly and we were pleased with the great weather we got!

It’s always packed with people and I can see why.

It’s definitely a hot spot for a functions – birthday parties, cocktail parties or corporate functions – because of the great views, reasonable prices, efficient service and also because the whole area has such a rich history.

Check out their website for more info on opening times and contact details: THE BRASS BELL

Watch their video (at the top) and I guarantee you you’ll be calling them to organize your next get-together! ;)
