Alba Easy Lounge Cape Town
Alba Easy Lounge at Cape Town International Airport.
Cape Town International’s Alba Easy Lounge, where understated elegance is bound to induce elation in weary travellers and lively adventure seekers alike. Slip out of your stilettos and kick up your feet at the blissfully subdued cocktail lounge at the airport’s Gate A12.
The chic lounge consists of clean lines, and is swathed in cobalt blue and the Alba damask pattern. It promises to put glamour into the airport waiting game with soft lighting, lush couches and a curved wooden bar flanked by glistening chrome bar stools. The lounge is described as “a relaxed, urban space where you can sit back and enjoy stylish food and designer beverages.” Follow the latest sports on their tv’s, page through their magazines, or simply watch the colourful tide of people flow by in the airport terminal.
Choose a drink from a variety of single malts, premium blend cognacs, local wine, draught beer or cocktail favourites ranging from rose-tinted Cosmopolitans to tart Caipirinhas. Their menu of light meals include healthy ciabattas, wraps, salads and a selection of tapas like nachos and calamari. Staff recommend the cajun chicken wrap with crispy bacon, spicy cajun mayonnaise and avocado. Those in need of a caffeine-fix need not look any further as Alba Easy Lounge’s barista’s won’t disappoint.
The Alba Easy Lounge is situated a stone’s throw away from various boarding gates and is open from 5am until the last flight every day. It offers free Wi-Fi and is one of very few smoking facilities in the Mother City airport’s domestic departures area.
