Bascule Bar

On the water's edge of the international yacht marina on Cape Town's Waterfront, Bascule is the perfect setting to take in the sights and sounds of the busy Waterfront surrounds. There are over 500 whiskies from around the world and an impressive selection of the finest Cape wines on offer.

By day Bascule Bar is a lively and vibrant destination, to enjoy a cappuccino or light lunch. By night, the space is transformed into a glamorous Whisky, Wine and Cocktail Bar, where connoisseurs and social butterflies gather in equal measure to enjoy a slice of Cape Town's social life.

The Bascule Lounge, with its warm wood interior, stylish furnishings and fire place is situated adjacent to the main bar; it is the perfect venue for light lunches, dinners, exclusive whisky tastings and private dining.

Afternoon Tea

Served daily from 12h00 to 18h00 in the stylishly comfortable Library, the choice of several varieties of loose-leaf tea combined with a mouth-watering menu make for an unforgettable afternoon. First on offer is a Cream Tea consisting of home-made scones, strawberry jam and cream served with either loose-leaf tea or coffee for R75 per person.

Next on offer and presented in gorgeous tiers is the Afternoon Tea – a time-honoured tea for one! This includes freshly baked traditional and savoury scones, a selection of beautifully cut finger sandwiches and irresistible sweet treats served with either loose-leaf tea or coffee for R185 per person. For those in the mood for celebrating, Afternoon Tea is available with the added luxury of a glass of sparkling wine – MCC Afternoon Tea is served at R255 per person.

Lastly, for the not-so-hungry... a slice of delectable, home-made cake is available for R50 per slice.

With a choice of Black, White, Green and Herbal teas, there is something for every palate. And of course pure Highland Rooibos, grown wild on the high altitude Cedarberg Mountains - also known as the Red Gold of South Africa, is available as one of the healthy caffeine-free herbal options.

Served in an unrivalled setting overlooking the cosmopolitan yacht marina by staff trained to brew the perfect infusion of loose-leaf tea in dainty glass teapots, this is by no means an ordinary afternoon tea!
