Cape Town Nightlife

Cape Town's nightlife offers a wide variety of options. There are dozens of bars and clubs, jazz cafes, opera, independent theaters, and movie houses, all of which offer a good time out. For an exciting night out on the town, a must-visit is the La Med. La Med is best known as a summer sundowner spot, and what better place to sip on something tall and alcoholic. With a beach setting second-to-none and an incredible vibe, this is one of Cape Town's best offerings.

You can also head on to Rafiki's for a taste of Africa in Cape Town. Rafiki's is a legendary place that is impossible to miss as you drive through the heart of Cape Town. Located on Kloof Nek Road, which extends around the Atlantic Seaboard, Rafiki's cooks up amazing food, hosts the best events, and throws lavish parties. From African dishes and seafood to tasty pizzas, Rafiki's has it all.

For a bit of zing, check out Madame Zingara. The star-studded, purple facade of this popular entertainment hot spot yields to glittery interiors. A roaring fireplace throws glowing rays across the faces of pretty, costumed waitresses and dancers, who turn the venue into a carnival. Cape Town nightlife's hedonistic reputation is not undeserved. If you're looking for a few drinks at a bar, live music or just to dance the night away, you can't go wrong with Cape Town's bars and clubs.
