Cape Town has been named one of the “Top 29 Cities for Men to Live In” by AskMen.com – the largest online men’s magazine.

The inaugural edition of the list of the most appealing cities in the world for the everyday man was compiled by the editorial team of AskMen.com according to a list of eight selection criteria, including: Dating & Sex, Sports & Entertainment, Culture, Fashion, Health, Power & Money, The Good Life and 2009 Livability.

James Bassil, editor-in-chief of AskMen.com, says, “For the first time ever, AskMen.com ranked the best cities for men around the globe and we’re pleased to acknowledge those cities where men reap rewards on both personal and professional levels. Through meticulous research coupled with real-life experiences, we’ve set out to provide the most comprehensive round-up of the year’s most stimulating and exciting cities for men to live in worldwide.”

Topping the list is Chicago – the ideal destination, according to AskMen.com, for men looking for a comfortable, cosmopolitan lifestyle. The city’s cost of living, vibrant mix of culture and entertainment, and down-to-earth charm make it the first choice.

Ranked 27th on this guide to the good life, Cape Town is praised for its great weather and steady growth. With the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup, which South Africa is hosting, Cape Town is the place to be in terms of economic growth – especially during the global economic downturn.

This cosmopolitan city has everything a guy could wish for: some of the best gyms in the country, exclusive menswear stores, an abundance of beautiful women, numerous trendy night spots, breathtaking beaches and countless ways – both in and out of doors – to have fun.

As AskMen.com tantalisingly phrases it, “Some evenings, the sun doesn’t set until 21h00, and when you’re sipping an after-work cocktail overlooking the Camps Bay beachfront while watching the sunset, it makes a lot of sense to stay.”
