DEFINED by a dazzling combination of natural light pouring in from its elegantly curved glass façade to highlight its vibrantly flamboyant interior, Bobo’s is the essence of classic French bistro fused with Cape Town glamour and social style imperatives that only the signature Kove Collection brand deliver to sophisticated patrons.
With precise positioning within a deliberate architectural design to best lap up the remarkable seascapes enjoyed along the Cape’s Atlantic Seaboard seafront, Bobo’s floor to ceiling glass frames make the most of the season’s available warmth and light or, when thrown open, to embrace the cool sea breezes of spring and summer. A shaded outdoor area with classic black and white chairs under a striped canopy adds to Bobo’s exterior chic.
Step through its entrance and an interior of lush floral wallpaper and deep buttoned leather banquettes offer an atmosphere of old-world charm, with pops of contemporary emerald green chairs. ‘Bobo’ is slang for hipster in French and interior design aficionados Soda Custom has rendered Bobo’s Brasserie into an all-encompassing contemporary cool and cutting-edge experience.
Any afternoon is the perfect time to meet for celebratory cocktails in its avant-garde lounge lined with bookshelves, an open fireplace, velvet armchairs, and shaded Boho lamps beneath Mediterranean blue tiles which keep the atmosphere lively with undercurrents of electric energy.
Make the transition from work day to evening social with Bar Bites to snack on with traditional fresh baguette with farm butter and sea salt, olives, in-house crisps with Boursin French onion dip with or without caviar, and dry cured, celeriac, remoulade and apple-styled ham and terrine of smoked salmon with crème fraiche.
