The Marine in Hermanus celebrates the end of the week with Bottomless Bubbles every Friday evening. Popular with locals and visitors alike, there is simply no better way to ease into the weekend with live music and welcome canapés included in the deal. Bottomless Bubbles is served from 5pm to 7pm every Friday evening in the relaxed sophistication of the Sun Lounge & Bar overlooking Walker Bay. (Cost: R200 per person).
This month (September), it has been 50 years since South Africa started producing Cap Classique – its world-renowned, bottle fermented sparkling wines. For the Bottomless Bubbles events the Marine chooses L’Ormarins Cap Classique, expertly paired with a choice of Executive Chef Rudi Blaauw’s delicious, seasonal canapés. True to the chef’s food philosophy of ‘sourcing the freshest ingredients locally and letting the quality of produce shine through’, the menu of beautifully crafted appetisers changes on a regular basis.
The weekly Bubbles event creates the perfect occasion to meet up with friends, revel in the champagne sea air and toast the golden hour in style with live acoustic music setting the scene. Guests are invited to linger on and make an evening of it, by enjoying dinner at Origins restaurant at 10% discount when booking in conjunction with Bottomless Bubbles.
For out of towners there is the option to extend the celebrations to a sleep-over and whale watching weekend, making use of the current ‘local stay’ promotion that offers up to 25% discount. Bed and breakfast rates start at R2800 per room per night and include a complimentary minibar. (Discount accommodation offers subject to availability)
