About Cape Quarter

Standing out as one of the most stylish shopping centres in the Western Cape, the Cape Quarter in De Waterkant is home to over 100 stylish retail stores and restaurants.

The Cape Quarter is home to some of the most exclusive interior and fashion stores, including well-known local and international labels. As it borders the De Waterkant, Cape Town City Bowl, the Cape Quarter is perfectly situated for business breakfasts and lunch meetings. The open-plan piazza suggests a more relaxed and stylish experience in shopping centre dining. In fact, the piazza oozes with contemporary styling and luxurious detailing. Favourite meeting spots include Vanilla, Voila and Lazari, which are all located in favourable spots.

The Cape Quarter also boasts one of the best Spar grocery stores in the Cape, as well as health and beauty businesses, jewellers, an eyewear store, art galleries and much more. Parking is no issue, with 900 secure underground parking bays in close proximity.

Cape Quarter's central piazza and ingenious use of space, as well as its mix of contemporary and authentic design and tenancies, has commendably preserved Cape Town's historical heritage for modern usage. As it is with the locals in the know, Cape Quarter's relaxed retail environment with its vibey outdoor eateries, authentic hand crafted design and stylish cobbled courtyard will convince you too that Cape Quarter is, in fact, Cape Town’s best kept secret.

Green Point is an area of Cape Town that enjoys the rare luxury of protection from the notorious Cape Doctor - whose south easterly wind buffers the city during the summer months. Many guesthouses, Green Point Bed & Breakfasts, sidewalk cafes and stylish shops keep the area abuzz during the day; at night the atmosphere is charged with energy from the numerous bars and nightspots. This is the trendiest Cape Town suburb - and at the heart of this is Cape Quarter.

Cape Quarter enjoys great proximity to the busy city centre and the popular Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. It is also easily accessed by foot - or via taxi or bus - from Cape Town's best known Atlantic seaboard beaches and Cape Town hotels. Secure on-site parking is offered and the building is covered by security and CCTV surveillance.
