About Observatory

Known to locals as Obs, this bustling suburb has a vibrant atmosphere and unique culture that makes it one of the most visited areas in the city. Its long list of attractions and unmistakably cool vibe keeps locals and foreigners coming back for more. Considered the bohemian centre of Cape Town, Obs has an incredible mixture of old and newly remodelled buildings that house some of the best bars, eateries and galleries around.

Not merely for the artsy and creative, the River Club boasts a beautiful nine-hole golf course and is the perfect spot to watch the latest rugby or soccer match with an ice-cold beer and a few good friends. Alternatively, you can get your space nerd on at the South African Astronomical Observatory (giving Obs its name) and enjoy a lecture on the cosmos and even enjoy stargazing (weather permitting) on their monthly open nights.

Thanks to its closeness to the City Centre, residents and visitors are well-placed to easily explore the ins and outs of the CBD, surrounding areas and must-see attractions, including Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and the V&A Waterfront, to name a few.

Observatory is a vivacious area and a well-known hotspot for an exciting night out, thanks to the clubs and lively restaurants that line the streets. Elevate your Cape Town stay with Observatory self-catering accommodation and experience the very best of this eclectic community. AirAgents offers top-quality Observatory holiday rentals that are stylishly furnished and beautifully maintained to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible.
