Boules: Your New Favourite Drink-And-Play Game

Hold your beer while playing an iconic French game on a Bo-Kaap rooftop

 “You are absolutely allowed to drink while playing boules,” says Byron Ascott-Evans, organiser of Let’s Talk Boules, “we encourage it as it adds to the social experience.”

Boules, France’s most popular pastime, gets a Cape Town twist with a rooftop venue and Let’s Talk Boules’ pop-up games at Harvest Cafe & Deli every day until 9 February.


BOULES VS LAWN BOWLS
Lawn Bowls is an Olympic sport, that South Africa has previously medalled in, where the objective is to roll a large and heavy ball towards a smaller one called a jack. The game is played in rounds with the closest ball to jack declared the winner of the round, the person with the most round wins is the overall champ.


Boules is a popular European time killer similar to Lawn Bowls. The only difference is that the ball is tossed through the air, and the game is played on a court made up of sand, gravel or crushed stone. In some cases, boules can also be played by rolling a heavy ball.

BOULES WITH A LEKKER VIEW
Cape Town has views for days, this is why rooftop bars have become popular haunts. The guys from Let’s Talk Boules have taken advantage of this and set up their pop-up games on the rooftop of favourite Bo-Kaap venue, Harvest Cafe & Deli. Patrons will have access to Harvest’s food and drinks menu, and rooftop views of Table Mountain, Devil's Peak and Lion's Head. Out of respect for the Bo Kaap culture, the venue only serves non-alcoholic beverages.


PLAY SOME BOULES
Tickets cost R25 a game (which consists of three rounds). You can contact Byron Ascott-Evans at +27 (0)79 382 6368 or email byron@letstalkboules.com for more details, and options for corporate functions, birthday parties and other pop-ups.
