About Heritage Square Shopping Mall

The vibrant hub of Heritage Square is aptly named, being situated in the heart of the historical and cultural heart of Cape Town. It is right in the CBD of the city, on the border of the Bo-Kaap, where the Cape Malay community have been based for generations. Today, of course, it is much more multi-faceted and multi-cultural. But, it still tells an intriguing and important story of a massive segment of the modern South African heritage.

Heritage Square is home to a number of boutiques, shops, wineries and restaurants. There is even a gin distillery and a coffee roastery here. Jewellery, crafts and fashion are added to the mix to create a vibey little epicentre of all things delicious and beautiful; just minutes away from the malls, office blocks, and markets of the City Bowl of Cape Town.

Although it is steeped in history and character, Heritage Square is contemporary and fun for the whole family. What’s more, it is within walking distance of Greenmarket Square and many of the other galleries, shops, and eateries of Cape Town. A short drive will take you to Table Mountain and its world-famous cable car, the V & A Waterfront, the Zeitz MOCAA Museum of Contemporary Arts, and the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

The Bo-Kaap, formerly known as the Malay Quarter, is recognised by its quaint, steep (often cobbled) streets and colourful houses. It is home to the first Muslim mosque in South Africa and a number of temples and shrines. It is only 20 minutes from the Cape Town International Airport.
