The Harri is situated at 75 Harrington Street in the East City Precinct, Cape Town’s design district described by House & Leisure magazine as a “must-visit spot for food, shopping and entertainment”. It’s bordered by Buitenkant, Roeland, Darling and Canterbury streets, with Harrington Street connecting the lower end of leafy Lower Gardens with the Foreshore’s 17th-century Castle of Good Hope. Since coming under the management of Cape Town’s Central City Improvement District, the precinct has undergone a near-miraculous revival, with several residential, commercial and mixed-use developments underway. In a short space of time, the streetscape has literally changed before the developer’s eyes.
