About Gorgeous George

Gorgeous George, the inspiring new spot in the heart of downtown Cape Town where local design and boundary-pushing innovation meet. Located in the picturesque tree-lined streets of St George’s Mall, Gorgeous George is in comfortable walking distance of bustling Greenmarket Square, the Company’s Garden and the ever-popular Long, Bree and Kloof street packed hip coffee shops, local restaurants, contemporary art galleries and other must-see attractions. Gorgeous George is a meeting place for both leisure and business travellers, as well as locals looking for a truly unique inner-city experience.

Gorgeous George is the first in Cape Town to join the Design Hotels™ stable, a hand-selected collection of 300 privately owned and operated hotels in over 60 countries that represent unique creative expressions with a strong cultural rooting in design, architecture and hospitality.

Come to George to stay

More than a hotel, Gorgeous George is where local design and boundary-pushing innovation meet, creating an inner-city gathering place for both locals and the well-travelled.

Gorgeous George boasts 32 luxe rooms ranging from studios to 1 and 2-bedroom suites featuring industrial tones of raw, exposed concrete and steelwork, blended with modern Victorian design elements.


Go to Gigi to play

Gigi Rooftop is the restaurant at Gorgeous George. Conceptualized by Executive Chef Guy Bennett, it offers fresh and inspirational dishes to thrill the palates of both local foodies and international travellers. With extensive knowledge and passion for food, Bennett has worked with top South African chefs including Reuben Riffel, Michael Deg and Bertus Basson, and most recently helmed Grand Provence in Franschhoek.

The Gorgeous George bar is a place to let loose and indulge. Meticulously crafted cocktails and a selection of local and international wines and spirits served by renowned in-house mixologists.


A living room for the neighbourhood


The rooftop pool is where Cape Town comes to play. With breathtaking views of the city, the Gorgeous George rooftop is a place to be yourself, be inspired and be entertained. With year-round events, this is a meeting place for like minds, new best friends, creative collaborators and locals to love.

Rounding out Gorgeous George’s cultural quotient is The White Room, the ideal setting for cultural event programming and art space. The White Room will rub shoulders with neighbouring art galleries, niche museums, and intimate theatres.
