Drink in luxury on a wharf

By Catherine Smart

If there’s a place to embrace rosé all day, this has to be it. Situated at the end of Straight Wharf, we head to Cru to stare out at sparkling water, beautiful boats, and—let’s just say it—the beautiful people (the likes of Kourtney Kardashian have been known to hang here). Perched at the quartzite-topped bar, feeling the ocean breezes blowing through the bespoke-boat inspired dining room with gold accents, it’s almost as if you’re lounging on one of those yachts at arm’s length. In the lively brick-lined outdoor area, you can sink into plush patio furniture under twinkling cafe lights and sip cocktails like the refreshing Sun Temple, with coconut-infused pisco, falernum, frothy egg whites, and pineapple, and dive into a freshly shucked seafood tower. This is a spot to linger—keep your eyes peeled and the pink pours coming.
