PLACES TO CALL WORK FOR THE DAY
Working 9 – 5 is a thing of the past, with so many business owners, entrepreneurs, and even those in regular employment needing to work with much more flexibility than before. As such, traditional offices are in decline and travellers are looking for a new kind of environment to get work done, meet clients, and possibly network. Beyond shared work spaces is a also a new breed of business meeting spaces, where the benefits of café culture, members clubs and serviced offices are combined. We bring you our top picks of the best business meeting spots in Cape Town – offering something for everyone.

The Bureaux | Bree Street, City Centre
During good weather, head to Clifton for traditional sundowners and enjoy the beautiful sunset.Although beautifully azure, the sea is freezing cold, so don’t expect to swim for too long.There are no shops or restaurants on the beaches, so pack a cooler box and take your own food and refreshments.
It’s often a challenge to find parking, so it’s best to get a taxi or Uber, or be prepared to walk a little distance from where you’re able to find parking at Clifton. Clifton beaches are protected from wind, but it’s always advised to take along something light and warm just in case!
