Welcome to Penthouse on long, Cape Town’s coolest crib six floors above vibey Long Street. Once a dreary office, the entire level now provides an uber-cool living space for the owners and 76 souls. Arrive at Penthouse on long, and Cathy, Noelline, Carne, Jayson and Clint will give you a warm welcome to the Penthouse family. Choose from the our many individually decorated rooms including the Africa Room strewn with leopard print cushions, Hearts (girls only!), Zebra, Cosmos and Moroccan dorms , all with their own quirky design elements and a heady use of colour. (But if you and your, um, friend require a little Gypsy chic beneath the sheets then try out one of our many private rooms. Really, the choices are scandalous dahlin’!) Oh! Did we mention the rooftop terrace and bar, with its amazing view of the Mother City? Or the gourmet kitchen equipped with all the goodies necessary to prepare the ultimate feast before hitting town? (After of course, kick starting your Long Street crawl at the rooftop bar.) When your night is over, you can crawl straight back home again, watch TV or retire to the reading room for some peace and quiet (or a quick zed).
