An exciting mix of sexy-looking design and cool-kid innovation, the new Radisson RED Hotel in the V&A Waterfront’s trendy Silo district is a tech-savvy millennial’s delight. Free high-speed wifi in every nook and cranny? Tick! An app that lets you do everything – from check-out to networking with other guests? Yep! “Love yourself lighting” to snap the perfect selfie? You got it!
The hotel’s 252 studios serve up killer city views, but the best spot to really soak up your surroundings is the Red Roof, a rooftop pool, bar and grill where you can knock back a sundown shake or craft beer from a bright-red street food-inspired truck-bar, called Van Rouge.
If you’re really ravenous, head down to the OUIBar + KTCHN, a social hub that serves everything from gourmet burgers and fiery tacos made from local seasonal produce to Hill’s Science pet food. Oh, you didn’t you know? The hotel even extends it’s hospitality to your fur baby! If not, the resident Boston Terrier, Baxter – who’s also the hotel’s brand ambassador – might get lonely.
What’s happening at Radisson RED in December 2017?
While there’s always something hot happening at Radisson RED, there are two upcoming events you don’t want to miss.
First up is the Festive Feast on Christmas Day, where guests will be treated to a picnic-style gourmet lunch that includes everything from red wine and pear-infused turkey to mince pies and toasty waffles served with a myriad of indulgent toppings that’ll make you glad the hotel has a state-of-the-art gym. (R695 per person; kids under 12 eat for free and also receive a little surprise from Santa.)
The other not-to-be-missed event is a rocking New Year’s Eve Rooftop Bash (R1 800 per person) with DJs Dino and Roger Goode. Guests can expect a decadent butcher’s braai, more street food than you can shake a stick at, a rather fancy G&T on arrival, and bubbles as well as fireworks when the clock strikes 12.
