Hop along to awesome bars in Cape Town with the Summer Series Hops

Leave your car and your worries behind as you enjoy bar hopping to five awesome venues in the Mother City

Take bar hopping to the next level with the Summer Series Hops, brought to you by Hop City. This is the ideal way to explore Cape Town’s nightlife in a cool, unique and super convenient way.

Bar hopping is one of the best ways to get a feel for the magic of the Mother City after dark, and with the Summer Series Hops you don’t need to do any of the planning for an epic night out yourself. Simply choose between the Contiki Nights Cocktail Carnival or the Contiki Nights Smoke and Lights package, gather your mates and get ready to HOP, skip, jump and party the night away!

The organisers understand that finding your way around the city can be a daunting task but with the Summer Series Hops you will have a “chaperone” showing you around, which makes everything easier… and a whole lot more fun. And what’s more, safety is not an issue and neither is driving – the peace of mind comes from knowing all you need to worry about is having as much fun as possible.


  • Meet your professional hopper at a designated point at 5pm. This is the pro party person who will be facilitating the evening’s fun and festivities.
  • For the rest of this night out you will transported around the city to the five fun venues.
  • Included in the price of your ticket is one free drink on arrival at each venue. But buy more if you dare...
  • Entry to each venue is included in the ticket price.
  • Because bar hopping equals drinking… a tasty snack is also included in the ticket price.  

Look forward to partying at five premier venues in Cape Town. We can’t reveal too much right now but we can tell you that sunset cocktails at a stunning rooftop bar is one of the stops for the night.


There are two options to choose from (thought you could also do both!):

  • Contiki Nights Cocktail Carnival: Takes place every Wednesday and Thursday until 25 January 2018 for R1250/p.
  • Contiki Nights Smoke and Lights: Takes place every Friday and Saturday until 3 February 2018 for R1350/p.


Hop City was started by nightlife experts who want to bring the safety back to inner-city partying. The team searched far and wide to discover the best bars and nightclubs to include on this Summer Series Hops tour. The result? An experience not to be missed. Sit back, enjoy the ride and make new friends too!


Hop City offers extended transfer and tent services for any festival taking place in Cape Town or surrounds. How this works is you book you transfers to and from the festival, as well as tent hire and an array of other camping essentials you might need for the duration of the festival.
