Things To Do In Cape Town On New Year’s Day 2019

Try something different in Cape Town this new year with these cool ways to kickstart 2019

Last Update: 19 December 2018

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.

HOLIDAY SPECIAL: GLOWING ROOMS
Play 18 holes of 3D glow-in-the-dark mini golf for only R110 per person (3D glasses sold separately). When playing in a group of 4, pay for 3 and 1 plays FREE... This offer is valid Tuesdays to Thursdays between 11 December 2018 and Wednesday 16 January 2019. Find out more about Glowing Roms

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
