Happy Hour Specials in Cape Town

Where to drink on a budget in Cape Town, from elegant date spots to dive bars

 

Last updated: Friday, 30 December 2022

Boozy Fridays in Cape Town are as much of a staple as the mountain and icy cold sea. Thankfully, after-work drinks don’t have to break the bank. From old-school rock n roll spots to rooftop bars and elegant eateries, our selection of happy hour specials in Cape Town will have you covered all week long.

VISIT FOR OLD-SCHOOL ROCK N ROLL

Deal: R20 for a glass of house red, white, rosé, beer or tequila shot
Time: Monday to Thursday, 4pm - 6pm

Deal: Shots (R15), Black Label Draught (R32), cocktails (from R40)

DIG IN TO BUNNY CHOW AT A DIVE BAR

Deal: Varies
Time: Daily, 3pm - 6pm
