The special 2-for-1 glasses of Col Sandago Prosecco on Fridays.
About the restaurant Rooftop bars are springing up everywhere but if you’re at ground level, it’s easy to walk on by. So don’t miss Harald’s Bar & Terrace in Heerengracht Street on the Foreshore. Whether you’re looking for an after-work tipple to clear away a day cooped up in the office, or a vibrant summer evening spent under the stars, this laid-back hideaway is a top choice. With a splash pool and ample seating, it’s a bit of calm above the noise and bustle of the city. And when you’re feeling peckish, take your pick of snack baskets, sliders, gourmet burgers and pizzas from the tapas-style menu which also offers a selection of cocktails, beer and wine.
Good to know Harald’s hosts ‘Flavour Fridays’ in conjunction with the 2-for-1 prosecco special where the rooftop is abuzz with groovy mixes from a live DJ.
