From swanky rooftop lounges and hip gin bars to pool halls and live music venues, Cape Town has a nightlife second to none.

If the city centre is the heart of Cape Town’s nightlife then Long Street is the main artery, with its energy emanating outwards along Kloof Street, Tamboerskloof and Somerset Road and Green Point all the way onto the Atlantic Seaboard and Cape Town’s sunset capital, Victoria Road in Camps Bay.

The party doesn’t stop there either, pool bars, indie, reggae, goth and grunge scenes can all be found along Lower Main Road in Observatory and Main Road, Claremont whilst Edward Street in the Northern Suburbs’, Durbanville does glitz and glam.

Music is the lifeblood of the Cape Flats’ discos and township shebeens, from Athlone to Gugulethu and concerts are both organized and spontaneously held in backyards and on street corners.

If you’re chasing the nightlife, the Mother City is ready to play party-planner.
