Glow-in-the-dark mini golf. Baby back ribs. Live music. And escape from the sinking submarine. There's just as much fun to have with friends, family or even as a couple – whether you're looking for lunch, a nice experience or things to do – this New Year's Day in Cape Town.

INDULGE FROM 11 TO 11 AT CENTURY CITY
Let your appetite start 2019 the right way with oak-smoked barbeque marinated ribs or gumbo, the American South Creole stew. Eating the baby back pork ribs is a sweet succulent mess – which is why they are served with an apron. There's a reason why Knife has become an institution. If you don't already know, make 2019 the year to find out why. Find out more about Knife Restaurant
