Visitors to Saint George’s Mall can now enjoy the luxury of Free WiFi! Conveniently located on the doorstep of Taj Cape Town, in the heart of the CBD, the initiative is sure to provide a valued service to students, business people, tourists and stall traders.
Accessible to anyone near the top of St George’s Mall, the new Free WiFi zone is the result of an on-going project between service provider Connected Space, the Central City Improvement District and the Cape Town Partnership. A daily 100 MB of free internet access has been made available in the area to not only add value to office workers’ spare time but also to school-goers as they take a break on one of the many shaded benches.
The free public WiFi project was initially conceptualised by WiFi experts Connected Space as a World Design Capital 2014 project. As a provider of advanced WiFi Hotspot solutions, Connected Space sought to use their unique insights into how design, such as that of a WiFi network, can transform life and the space around it.
Already an extremely popular and successful public space, the project looks towards increasing business and opportunities in the area as well as promoting new technologies which emerge within areas with readily available access to online services. Gaining access to the hotspot is relatively simple and people using the WiFi for the first time will be asked to login to the system to create an account before signing-up for their 100 megabytes of daily data.
Taj Cape Town is especially excited to have Free WiFi on the very doorstep of the hotel as guests will now have an opportunity to find places to shop or fun events nearby even easier than ever before.

We once again welcome the Hindu thanksgiving festival of Diwali and join in with people of all ages, from many different backgrounds around the world in ceremonies and celebrations.
Also known as the “Festival of Lights”, the ancient Hindu festival signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. The festival is celebrated with lightings, crackers, colourful rangoli making, social gatherings and the sharing of sweets with loved ones.
Bombay Brasserie will provide a sumptuous setting for an unforgettable Diwali with a five-course lavish fine dining Diwali taste menu on offer.
The menu begins with an appetizer of lentil dumplings ‘Bhallas’ topped with yoghurt and mango chutney, a speciality from the streets of Old Delhi. The menu continues with a roasted yellow corn soup with turmeric popcorn as well as a tandoori-style ocean catch of Norwegian salmon or dill herb & garlic prawns.
A range of main course meals include: ‘Karoo’ Lamb cubes simmered in a delicate saffron curry; ‘Chicken Tikka Masala’ with vinegar shallots; sautéed spinach with golden fried garlic; and finally black lentils & kidney beans simmered overnight. An accompaniment of basmati rice and naan breads are also available throughout the main course.
This Diwali taste sensation ends with an assiette of desserts including ‘Morello’ cherry baked yoghurt, fennel seed Biscotti, Home Made ‘Kulfi’ Ice Cream with fruits, and hot ‘Gulab Jamuns’.
The Diwali Tasting Menu at the Bombay Brasserie will be available from the 20th until the 25th of October 2014 from 18h30 until 22h00 and is priced at R495 per person and R750 when paired with proudly South African wines.
