Nightlife in Cape Town

See and be seen on the trendy terrace at Sand Bar in Camps Bay or at Asoka on Kloof Street. Greenpoint thrives with straight and gay late-night venues and a party atmosphere. Visit the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront for early evening art performances before hitting the dance floors in Zonnebloem and Gardens, where clubs liven up from 11pm. Cabaret, jazz and live bands perform in the city centre. Weekend-loving Capetonians treat Wednesday nights as mini-Fridays.
