Local design and boundary-pushing innovation meet at Gorgeous George, the new hotel in the heart of downtown Cape Town. Created out of two beautifully restored heritage buildings, Gorgeous George is the first in Cape Town to join the Design Hotels™ stable, a hand-selected worldwide collection of privately owned and operated design-forward and culturally rooted hotels.

Gorgeous George has 32 luxurious rooms with raw, exposed concrete and steelwork industrial tones blended with modern Victorian design elements. Each room is kitted with an eclectic mix of handpicked treasures and custom pieces sourced from local and international designers and finished with hand-painted wall art by David Brits.

At Gorgeous George, Gigi Rooftop offers a unique take on modern classics; think casual cuisine with a twist. Knowing where your food comes from is as important as the food itself, so we’re focused on sustainable, ethically sourced produce from free-range eggs, artisanal cheese, pasture-reared beef, and line-caught fish from sustainable fisheries.

Raise a glass to life at Cape Town’s favorite rooftop bar and enjoy meticulously crafted cocktails created by our in-house mixologists. This is where Cape Town comes to play. The Gorgeous George rooftop, with breathtaking city views, is a place to be yourself, be inspired, and be entertained.

A meeting place of like minds, new best friends, creative collaborators, and locals to love. Parties. Shindigs. Banquets. Bashes. Trailblazing art, oh-no-they-didn’t performances. It’s all going downtown at Gorgeous George. The stunning George Hotel’s Gigi Rooftop Restaurant & Bar offers a remarkable dining experience that will stay with you.

There are several seafood and vegetarian alternatives on the menu and many other delicious dishes. The meal is flavorful and light, yet the amounts are substantial.
