Three Gs in the House – Gorgeous George + Gigi Rooftop + Chef Guy Bennett

From April Cape Town sees the eagerly anticipated Design Hotels™ property, Gorgeous George, open its doors to a flagship of stunning designer humans. First two days already booked to capacity, the ultra-chic downtown establishment boasts a beautiful heightened dining and entertainment space, quaintly named Gigi Rooftop. The rooftop will be led by the third ‘G’ in the equation: Executive Chef Guy Bennett.


Chef Guy Bennett’s culinary record cites a series of star-studded experiences including the Grande Provence Heritage Estate and the One & Only, working under Chef Edgar Osojnik at Buitenverwachting Wine Estate and even Michelin-rated head chef Michael Deg at Delaire Graff Restaurant.

“Our philosophy at Gorgeous George is ‘come for breakfast, stay all day’”, muses Bennett. “So the menu will have a relaxed feel, using some classic French techniques, while also drawing on all my experiences, which include Asian fusion, South African and modern UK influences.”


Being part of Design Hotels™, Gigi will stay true to the ideology of innovative design and architecture, with a strong cultural rooting in hospitality. This will be brought out in the menu, which will benefit from cutting-edge cooking techniques, distinctive plating and seasonal locally sourced ingredients. Bennett is looking forward to introducing some of his new and unique touches to the menu at Gigi Rooftop at Gorgeous George.

The doors to Gorgeous George officially open from 18 April 2019, however, if you’d like to book your stay they are already taking reservations. For further information please visit their website:
