Woodstock is the “Brooklyn” of Cape Town

Hi guys, Today I wanna show you some pics of our walk through the streets of Woodstock. It is one of the coolest suburbs in the heart of Cape Town. People say that Woodstock is the “Brooklyn” of Cape Town.

 

And indeed it is!!!

 

Because its young and creative scene is getting more and more trendy. A while ago some people have set up a major urban renewal initiative, and it caused that this district is today a vibrant hub of young professionals, Victorian homes, bustling markets and excellent spots in which you can enjoy a good coffee and healthy snacks. The local delis and the buzzing coffee roastery are neighbours to the vendors with organic vegetables, fresh cocktails or smoothies. As you notice, it is a colorful mix that makes this neighborhood so interesting.

As you stroll through the streets, you can’t miss the impressive and interesting street art. Because this street art, which is found everywhere, has played an important role in the transformation of the area into a safe and lively community.

Further the famous building “Woodstock Exchange”, which is a child of some local property developers, who were responsible for the reenergizing this area, is a well worth seeing and popular venue. This people saw the potential of the somewhat quirky and run-down buildings and set about creating an affordable and lifestyle-driven nest for small creative business, innovators, blue-sky thinkers and experimenters. Today it is home to some of the trendiest fashion designer, photographer, illustrators, film directors and a couple of pretty cool shops.

Last but not least the “Old Biscuit Mill”. A warm-hearted place in Woodstock where talented people come together to share, collaborate and show off the heart-felt passion. The Mill is home to day and night markets, dynamic office space, a range of workshops and designer stores, trendy restaurants as well as an inspiring line-up of festivals and productions. You will meet some of South Africa’s most talented, innovative designers, artists, photographers and connoisseurs of fine taste and decor.

But now let the pics take you to this place to hear their own story.

Enjoy…!!!
