Trendy and Cosmopolitan - Green Point offers great choices of accommodation, nightlife & entertainment. Situated between the V&A Waterfront and Signal Hill, Green Point is the focal point of Cape Town´s 2010 FIFA World Cup developments. The new stadium is in the process of being built in a fabulous location between the mountain and the sea. The area is a buzz with over 15 cranes and numerous workmen building the incredible new stadium. We look forward to hosting the best soccer world cup ever.
Green Point is the home to much of Cape Town's gay scene. Green Point Main Road has some of the best gay clubs, bars, cabaret venues and restaurants in Cape Town. The De Waterkant shopping area is a collection of specialist up-market shops and trendy restaurants including the excellent Cape Quarter - a shopping centre that regards itself as an experience and the essence of ‘Cape Town cool. Green Point also has a number of theatres, lodges, hotels and bed and breakfast establishments.
Green Point exudes a village feel with narrow villa-lined streets, sidewalk cafes and stylish shops. Many of the homes are Victorian-style restorations with balconies and trellises as well as lovingly reconditioned original features of this period. Green Point is a vibrant and lively part of Cape Town both night and day, particularly after dark when local pubs, clubs and cabaret restaurants serve as a popular hangout for locals and visitors. Green Point is close to the city centre, including Long Street, Company Gardens and a number of museums and galleries. It is also a perfect location from which to access the Cape Town beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay.
The centre of controversy around the 2010 World Cup, the Green Point Common serves also as the site for the Sunday morning market - one of the largest markets in the mother city with examples of traditional African art pieces, music and crafts. And Sea Point’s promenade makes for an interesting early morning amble or late evening walk to view the locals and the sun setting over the sea.
