Situated on the water’s edge of the V&A Waterfront yacht marina, Bascule’s breath-taking views are rivalled only by the enticing array of over 400 whiskies from around the globe. Also on offer is an exceptional selection of the Cape’s best wines to satisfy even the most particular of tastes. By day, Bascule is a vibrant destination where a cappuccino or light lunch can be enjoyed. By night, the space is transformed into a lively bar, where locals and visitors gather to enjoy sundowners and lively music, savouring speciality drinks and tasty tapas dishes, as the sun sets on the horizon. The skilful bartenders have indeed mastered the art of mixology. Top-quality tipple deserves a tapas menu to match – and it certainly does. Biltong, olives, oysters and smoked ostrich are just some of the local delicacies on offer. Bascule Lounge, with its warm wood interior, stylish furnishings and fireplace, hosts exclusive whisky tastings and can also be booked for private dinners.
