Cape Town By Night: Cool Things To Do After Dark

A roundup of awesome and quirky after-dark activities in Cape Town

Last Update: 13 February 2019

From night activities like entertainment, live music and clubs to restaurants in nightlife hotspots and places to party you might not have thought of looking. We even look at safe and family-friendly night-time activities around Cape Town.

1. POOL DECK OR DINNER WITH A MOUNTAIN VIEW
Newly renovated, the quintessential Cape Town CBD hotel now features an extended Murano Deck overlooking Orange Street. Doubly awesome because it features a pool and cocktail bar (try the Bali-inspired Crushed Coconut Mojito). Or, you can dine with a view of Table Mountain on healthy-but-tasty food options from the “live kitchen” at the 15 on Orange restaurant that doesn’t have a name yet. You could even choose to stay over, and maybe dine in a pod overlooking the atrium. Discover the new-look 15 on Orange Hotel, Autograph Collection.

2. Watch a movie under the stars at one of the stunning venues at The Galileo Open Air Cinema. It runs until April, the doors open at 6pm, and the movie starts at sunset. Tickets start at R89pp.

3.  Live jazz, up-and-coming bands, 2-for-1 burgers, a Falko mural and craft beer straight from the tank to your growler. Check out all the cool new experiences we discovered on a visit to Jack Black’s Brewing Co taproom in Diep River.

11. There’s rock ‘n roll music, live music and DJs to keep the vibe going all night at this Long Street party spot.

They’re all about the good times at Sgt Pepper on Long Street.
