One of the Best Rooftop Bars in Cape Town

In February 2018, La Bottega was voted as one of the top 5 of rooftop bars in Cape Town.

This covered rooftop bar is low-key and proud of it. If you want something fun but without the high maintenance of the city bowl, La Bottega is your spot. Eats are simple and well-priced, with items like burgers and chips, wraps and salads – all with vegetarian options. To drink, have bubbly or beer, or choose from a colourful array of cocktails.

Inside Guide voted La Bottega in their best 10 rooftop bars in Cape Town, 2018.


Popular as a breakfast and lunch spot for professionals working in Woodstock, La Bottega also attracts an after-dark crowd, who gather upstairs in the buzzy rooftop bar. Offering a refreshing reprieve from the buzzy streets below, La Bottega serves lip-smacking pizzas – according to the owner: “The constant flow of Italians is your best clue”.

Insider tip  Free wi-fi, private off street parking, and its convenient location between the CBD and the suburbs make it a great spot for business lunches.
