DOWNTOWN
CAPE TOWN IS
LOOSENING
ITS TIE
For years, much of
Cape Town’s Central
Business District
was fairly quiet after
business hours—but no
longer. Along Bree and
Loop Streets, these
clubs keep the CBD
humming well past
sunset. BY SARAH KHAN
DJs descend upon
Era. CLOCKWISE

Cocktail Emporium
Vintage glam is
what's on tap at this
Victorianesque,
speakeasy-style bar: a
chandelier strung with
old keys, oil lamps, and
waistcoated barmen
theatrically presenting
retro cocktails,
like the rum-based
Daddy Warbucks.

lively 200 block of

One of Cape Town’s
most vaunted clubs,
Coco added another
spot next door with
the August opening of
VIP-heavy GoldBar.
Expect to rub elbows
with South African
luminaries while
grooving to a rotating
roster of global DJs.

The futuristic design
here sets the stage
for one of the best
electronica scenes in
South Africa. Spend
the night dancing to
international DJs in
a techno temple with
walls and ceilings
of flashing LED lights.

8 Village Idiot
Lines running along
Loop Street have been
a common sight ever
since the Village Idiot
opened in May. If you
make it inside, join
locals swaying to live
music on the balcony
and by the pool table,
or making the acquaintance of the Village
Idiot himself: Oskar,
the stuffed ostrich
presiding over the bar.

If you’re in town:
First Thursdays
is one of the city’s
biggest monthly
events, when the
CBD transforms into
a festive block party,
with galleries and
boutiques keeping
their doors open late.

a live-music venue
