Footie fans should make a pit stop at Mitchell's Brewery
(+27 21 419 5074) on Dock Road. It is sure to be a popular spot during the World Cup as it's only five minutes' walk from the Cape Town stadium and has seven TV screens for watching the games. Billing itself as a Scottish ale house, it offers six of its own beers. Sadly the accommodation at the hip Grand Daddy Hotel
(38 Long Street, City Centre, +27 21 424 7247, granddaddy.co.za, from 1,500 rand, around ВЈ130, per room/trailer) is fully booked for the tournament but visit The Daddy Cool bar downstairs, which sports white leather chairs, bling gold decor, DJS and cocktails. The quirky new Penthouse Trailer Park, with retro Airstream caravans decorated by artists is on the rooftop. Also on the roof is the Pink Flamingo open-air cinema screening modern classics such as Bullitt and Boogie Nights, with blankets and directors' chairs provided.
