Going out in Cape Town

Hi there,

Which are your 10 favorite places to go out in Cape Town?

Which places would you recommend to newcomers? (restaurants, pubs, discos, theaters, cinemas, concert halls...)


I would try Mercury and Assembly. Great Alternative clubs that play rock, punk, ska, old school and some pop thrown in. You are guarenteed a good night out.
A great resturant would be Fat Cactus for the best Chilli Poppers and sundowners. If you feel like cocktails, try Cool Runnings or Cape to Cuba, based in town and observatory. However, if you want a true South African experience, try Mazoli's! That is a great day out and awesome atmosphere! You can go to any major mall to see the lateste releases in movies but for the ultimate, try the Imax based at the Water Front in Cape Town.Summer is the best for concert goers. also known as Kirstenbosch Gardens Summer concerts. This takes placee every Sunday with great locla bands and a picnic thrown into thhe mix!


Hemisphere, Chevelle, Fashion TV

in Long Street - the Dubliner Irish pub

The waterfront is a cool shopping center to go.

Claremont has a few good clubs too but mostly very studenty and for younger people.

Miss Sunshine is on the money there! No one has mentioned Camps Bay and Clifton, go to the beach front, there are awesome places there for sundowners! Hudsons and Royale eatery in long street do great burgers! Stellenbosch go to Mystic boer!

See you all in Cape Town in 2 weeks!
