The Settlement of Green Point was established sometime before June 1846, and in 1870 its name was changed to Somerset Road, presumably to differentiate it from another Settlement also called Green Point, in Cape Town. Somerset Road is heart of the Green Point area. Perfectly positioned, as it feeds straight out of the CBD at Riebeek Street through to the Main Road in Seapoint. Since the new Green Point Stadium was built in 2010, Somerset Road hosts a vibrant mix of Restaurants and Bars, which light up most nights. Servicing Locals from the Area and Tourists. In Summer, Somerset Road teems with people from the moment the sun rises until last call at the Bar at night. While the Parking for most of these Restaurants is on the street, there are a few Parking Lots, within walking distance. If you’re looking for a secure Underground Parking Area, there is ample parking behind Hudsons on Upper Portswood Road, towards the V & A Waterfront. 

On days when there are Soccer Games, Concerts or other Special Events; the road closes to traffic and becomes a walking street, known as the “Fan Walk” – stemming from the World Cup in 2010. If you’re in the Area at this time, you can get access to the area from High Level Road, or take a MyCiti Bus, which conveniently stops, parallel to Somerset Road. Once a Month at Full Moon, thousands of Cape Towns avid Cycling Community, take to the streets, to ride around the city. In bizarre costumes, riding bicycles of all shapes and sizes. 'MoonlightMass', as it is known, takes its route down Somerset Road towards, the City. Amid cheers from many Restaurant patrons. Somerset Road is also not too far from the Seapoint Promenade, where many people enjoy Morning Walks and the Sea Breeze. If you’re walking your Furry Best-friend; you can find many Dog-Friendly places along the strip, with water bowls readily available. Or why not take a walk from the Stadium too the Waterfront.
