Love Locks

We’ve teamed up with the 100% not-for-profit social enterprise Relate to bring you a unique kind of romantic gesture this Valentine’s Day.

Some of you may have heard of the infamous Pont des Arts in Paris, the Love Bridge. Since late 2008, tourists have taken to attaching a “love lock” with their first names engraved on it to the bridge and then tossing the key into the Seine as a romantic gesture to represent the couple’s committed love. For one day only, we are inviting you lovers to come down, purchase a love lock from Relate and declare your love.

Where? Pierhead Deck between 4pm and 7pm. This is the wooden deck that juts out from Alba Lounge/Hildebrand and goes up to where you cross over the bridge to the Clock Tower district.


As part of this special event, Mondiall (just up from Pierhead Deck) is giving away a table for two, for a Valentine’s Day dinner on Sunday. As we are already running a competition on our Facebook page in the lead up to V-Day, we’ve decided to add this delicious prize to the mix so one of the people drawn for one of the five main prizes will ALSO win dinner at Mondiall on Valentine’s Day night. Read more on the competition here. You can start the evening by visiting Pierhead Deck and putting up your love lock, followed by a romantic dinner at Mondiall. Lock Locks (each of which comes with a Relate bracelet) will be selling for R50.

Last but not least… Evolution Dance Studio will be hosting a fun open air Salsa class on Pierhead Deck. It also kicks off at 4pm.

See you on Sunday!
