An affluent city neighborhood, Gardens is populated largely by young professionals. Gardens has numerous restaurants, cafés, hotels, and shops, as well as many beautiful homes. Main thoroughfares like Kloof Street are packed with funky boutiques and are pleasant to stroll and explore. Once the beginning of central Cape Town’s residential area heading from the Company’s Garden up toward Table Mountain, Gardens has increasingly merged with "town" as the number of cafés and restaurants here has grown, making it a popular place both to stay and explore, both day and night.
