Atlantic Breeze


Cape winter sunsets are mesmerizing from the vantage point of The Table Bay’s Union Bar. Overlooking the working harbour and one of the Wonders of the World, Table Mountain, the Union Bar is an inviting space to find sanctuary from winter’s chill and enjoy some of the most innovative cocktails in Cape Town before an inspiring dinner at The Table Bay’s Camissa Brasserie.

Seasonality and authenticity of ingredients influence the ever evolving menu of cocktails available at the Union Bar. The bar tenders are also free to be creative and experiment with various fresh ingredients and liquor combinations to rejuvenate familiar favourites and always offer guests something new to explore.

One of the feature cocktails available at the Union Bar in June is the Atlantic Breeze, a refreshing blend of black current vodka, orange, mint and lemon – tinged with Blue Curaçao to deliver a delightful colour.

“It’s so refreshing and such a vibrant colour, you’ll think you’re sipping on summer which is an exciting contradiction to the winter grey outside,” says Marc Weber, Food and Beverage Manager at The Table Bay.
