Get Your Art on at the Cape Town Art Fair

Those familiar with Taj Cape Town will know that we have a new found love for art. It is a discipline that informs and reflects culture, current affairs, design and society’s love affair with all the little pleasures in life. If you too enjoy art, you will want to take a stroll through the Cape Town Art Fair during Cape Town Art Week. Between the 17th and the 19th of February, the Cape Town International Convention Centre will host local and international exhibitors, drawing attention to Cape Town’s thriving and inspiring art scene.

What to Expect at the Cape Town Art Fair

Between the hours of 11 am and 7 pm the Cape Town Art Fair is a whirlwind of talks, walkabouts, screenings, book signings and guest curators. Tickets range between R50 for children under 12 and R140 for adults. Pensioners and students only pay R100. The public gets free parking at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, while taxis and Uber gets a nifty little drop off lane. Visitors can buy food and drinks from vendors inside the CTICC, cash and cards will be accepted.

A Shared Love

‘The Gallery’ at Taj Cape Town plays host to monthly exhibitions of mixed art forms and you can keep an eye these by following us on Facebook and Twitter. Taj Cape Town is a supporter of both the local art scene and the immense talent which drives it. The Gallery, situated on the ground floor of Taj, is made up of two adjacent rooms, in which artwork is displayed and is available for purchase over the month of its display. One of these rooms is also used as a wine tasting room, where you can both taste and buy wine at cellar door prices.

In addition to its love of art and culture, Taj Cape Town is so conveniently located that it really is a short hop, skip and jump from the hub of art galleries which fill the city centre. Only a ten-minute drive from the Cape Town International Convention Centre, Taj offers guests new heights of luxury, ensuring an even more relaxing stay than you may have previously expected.

Celebrate Valentines Day at Taj Cape Town

Taj Cape Town is easily one of the most romantic spots in the city bowl. It is also around this time of year that it becomes even more romantic than usual. Treat that Special Someone to Valentines Jiva spa treatments, romantic dinners at Bombay Brasserie, Mint the Local Grill, or original handcrafted cocktails in The Twankey Bar… and, if choosing just one is too difficult, why not take advantage and indulge in all of them!

A Relaxing Jiva Spa Treatment

Just to ensure you really have the chance to unwind before dinner and drinks, why not book a romantic couples spa treatment? For the month of February Jiva is offering 75-minute couples massages for only R1 500 per couple. This special comes with complimentary access to the spa wet area as well as a Cranberry Kiss to sip on after your treatment. With an age-old understanding of herbs, essential oils and their therapeutic goodness, Jiva’s relaxing experience will ease all your tension.

Gourmet Indian Cuisine at Bombay Brasserie

When it comes to contemporary Indian food, Bombay Brasserie is without a doubt the best place to satiate your craving. Not only is the food mouth-watering and skilfully prepared, but the restaurant is luxurious, opulent and perfect for a romantic dinner. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Bombay Brasserie has a special set menu. For only R1 295 per person, you will be served an array of delicately flavoured, fine dining dishes fit for royalty.

Mint, the Local Grill

If it’s western flavours you are after Mint, the Local Grill offers guests an informal yet innovative dining experience. The Valentine’s Day dinner menu is nothing short of heavenly. For R650 per person, the meal is bursting with outstanding adaptations of our old favourites. Traditional lemon sorbet is traded in for an enticing champagne sorbet. From the grill, crispy pork belly is flavoured with rhubarb chutney and creamed horseradish foam, along with a red wine glaze.

The Twankey Bar

If not after dinner, perhaps before dinner, either way cocktails are always in order… particularly the Twankey cocktails. This historical gem has a R65 special on Ketel One Vodka cocktails during the month of February and on Valentines Day guests can benefit from the beer, champagne and Don Julio Margarita specials.

Spoil your loved one this Valentine’s Day with all of the unforgettable memories that make the month of love a special place in our hearts.
