With Cuban-inspired cuisine and its famous “Che Bar”, Cape-To-Cuba is a popular restuarant to tourists and certainly to a lot of locals in Kalk Bay! Only a 30 minute drive from Cape Town, it’s always a festive destination. Shooting a video profile for them was an absolute delight, as their colourful interior set a very fun and vibrant tone for their video. I loved the Cuban theme with all its decor indoors & outdoors… and I can personally vouch for their Mojitos! It’s definitely a good place for a delicious meal. Here’s their website if you’re interested in finding out more: http://www.capetocuba.com/ Apparently Che Guevara mixed the first one ever made there himself!

Bordering the waters of Kalk Bay’s gorgeous ocean, The Brass Bell is actually a lot bigger than I realised. Going there to shoot their profile was enlightening because apart from the main restaurant that we all know and love (The Bikini Deck), there is also the Cabin Bar & Restaurant, The Water’s Edge Restaurant, The Pavilion and the Izannes fine dining restaurant! Shooting was an absolute dream; the owner is very friendly and we were pleased with the great weather we got! It’s always packed with people and I can see why. It’s definitely a hot spot for a functions – birthday parties, cocktail parties or corporate functions – because of the great views, reasonable prices, efficient service and also because the whole area has such a rich history. Check out their website for more info on opening times and contact details: THE BRASS BELL

Filming The Mount Nelson Hotel & Spa in Cape Town for Skybok

It’s one of my favourite venues we’ve had the pleasure of profiling. The hotel is home to many international tourists, including movie stars and travelling politicians. Along with its high teas, it’s well-known for its brand new “Planet Bar” and its many ballrooms. Shooting this was very exciting – the staff were extremely friendly and while doing it we got to witness a wedding they were having in their beautiful gardens.

The reason this is one of my favourites is because The Mount Nelson Hotel offers a large variety of services to its guests – it acts as a wedding venue, a function venue, a conference venue and not to mention its fantastic spa. Here is the hotel’s website if you are interested in finding out more about it: MOUNT NELSON HOTEL. I record all my voice overs with professional sound engineer Frank Smuts.

Doing a video profile for my business Skybok at The Two Oceans Aquarium here in Cape Town was so much fun. I think the last time I went to the aquarium was when I was around 10 years old! It’s at the V & A Waterfront. Go to their website to check out more – http://www.aquarium.co.za/
