I was invited by Latitude Events Manager Naledi Molotlegi to experience the Latitude Café, which opened on the 9th floor of the Latitude ApartHotel on Regent Road in Sea Point in November 2019. It must be the highest restaurant on the Atlantic Seaboard, with beautiful views, and prides itself in being Proudly Cape Town.
Originally developed by the Berman Brothers Group, the building was very recently bought by 12Cape. New owner Hugo Venter was at the Café, and reminded me that we had danced together at HQ some time ago.
Wednesday 15 July 2020, Day 45 of Level 3, after 66 days of Levels 5 and 4. 😷
