Housed in a heritage building dating back to the 1900s, Athletic Club & Social opened its doors late last year to instant Instagram acclaim. It is so wonderfully photogenic. Occupying a beautifully renovated three-storey building in central Cape Town, this ‘non-members member’s club’ (everyone is welcome) invites visitors to explore its bar and restaurant, which are situated across a unique maze of impeccably furnished rooms where every detail has been carefully considered.
I’ve recently found myself with a fair bit of extra time (I’ll write more on that at some stage, perhaps), but for now I don’t think I’ve ever shifted into a slower pace and a period of relative unknown with as much ease, effortlessness, and joy. Who is this person?!
