Shimmy Beach Club – Refined Dining And Lively Parties
Shimmy on down to this award-winning beachside club
Whether you arrive by car, boat or helicopter (there’s parking for all three), this oceanfront hotspot has plenty on offer for both the die-hard party animal and the laidback reveller. Whether you’re looking to enjoy an excellent meal, laze by the pool, or have an all-night jol, Shimmy Beach Club is the ultimate lifestyle location.
SUMMER FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Shimmy Beach Club offers a fine dining restaurant, multiple bars, and a sprawling deck leading down to a private beach. Young children can splash in the pool or explore the jungle gym, ball pit, and arts and crafts station, all under the watchful eye of professional child minders. Parents can kick back and recline in wooden loungers in the summer sun. “We are lucky enough to offer a setup no one else has,” Digital Content Manager Olivia van den Heever shares.
A PREMIER VENUE FROM THE MOMENT YOU ARRIVE
It doesn't take long to get a sense of Shimmy’s vibe when you arrive: outside, a Hummer and a matte-black Bentley Continental GT flank the entrance – both branded, both Shimmy’s mascots. Music can be heard from behind the Mexican-antique doors that reach from the ceiling to the floor. This luxury lifestyle destination encapsulates the epitome of easy living. From the scintillating surrounding views to the high-end cuisine and refreshing cocktails, Shimmy has firmly established itself as a local favourite. Guests can feast on panoramas of both the blue waters of the ocean and the majestic backdrop of Table Mountain.
SUSHI, CANAPES, BUBBLES… AND MUCH MORE
Whether you’re popping in for a power lunch, settling in for sundowners with friends, lounging through a lazy lunch with the family, or enjoying canapes and cocktails with your colleagues, Shimmy offers the laid back yet sophisticated space and efficient service you need. Top off your relaxation with a glass of bubbly from the champagne bar and a sushi platter to complete the experience.
THE ULTIMATE CLUBBING EXPERIENCE
“There are so many places in Cape Town doing such amazing things, so we keep pushing boundaries to stay relevant,” Olivia van den Heever says. “We cater for the international market, but we want to be a go-to for locals as well,” she explains. Shimmy was voted one of the top 100 clubs in the world by the International Nightlife Association and goes above and beyond to ensure that you want to return time and again. You can boogie the night away to some of the best house beats on Shimmy Beach Club’s swanky indoor dance floor, or dance beneath the stars on the DJ stage on the beach. During summer, it hosts some of the city’s hottest events, including GoldFish Submerged.
HOST THE PERFECT SEASIDE PARTY
Shimmy offers a number of venues within the beach club. They can host various small events (think birthday lunches or dinners, office parties, bachelor(ette) parties) simultaneously. You’re sure to find a space suited to your desires. The main restaurant boasts a classy interior of oak wood floors, ash grey seats and starched white linen that can host up to 450 guests (the restaurant deck offers space for 100 more guests). The Shimmy Lounge can take up to 600 people, if you combine it with the Heineken Deck. The Pool Deck’s capacity is 800 standing guests, while the man-made beach can take up to 1,500 people. The Whiskey Room and VIP Room can take 20 and 30 people respectively.
