Grand Pavilion on Sea Point’s promenade
Rebooting dining culture, naughty Harry’s bar and Instagram winner ceiling lights
Early coffee, or work meeting? Brunch with bubbly? Fine dining lunch or beach style snacking. End of day drinks, adding some late sunshine before moving further in towards something that evolves into an evening you never want to end - or forget - at its Harry’s bar.
With its spacious set up it will provide ample social distancing during level 1 restrictions.
