A new year, A new beginning, A time to reflect. Oh wait, a time to Party. What are you doing for New Years? For most of us, there is this hasty search for that very “special” place to see in the New Year. We all want to know the ‘Where and the When’ of New Year’s parties in Cape Town. There is no doubt about the ‘When’ for this 2012/2013 new year’s, but where are all the parties and how do we find them? We aim to encourage as many party organizers in Cape Town and surrounds to LIST THEIR VENUES AND EVENTS. So, Please email us a flier and/or description of Parties happening in Cape Town on the 31'st December 2012. The info, and fliers submitted will be added to this post to make your choice of where to see in the new year,

Interesting People

DJ Rene the Frenchman

DJ-Rene-at-HQ

While us over at 17onLoader (De Waterkant's premium bed and breakfast) often review back alleys and bustling venues, we don't usually take a look at the lingerers in the limelight. But recently we found ourselves beers-ing with the Frenchman that keeps HQ frantic on Fridays... DJ Rene (the Frenchman - as he is referred to) is the towering, infectiously jovial energy of a man pleased with the way his life's turned out. His bombastically beautiful grey hair bounces as he animatedly gesticulates with a wide, trusty smile. Despite having lived in South Africa for seventeen years, Rene still has the two unmistakable traits of a Frenchman - the accent, and the kind of effortless charm that could hypnotize a girl right into

New Year in Cape Town

Alright you boozy floozies, the time is once again upon us. I know,  I know. We're getting calls from fifteen different social circles, we're examining our Christmas-wounded wallets and we can't make up our minds on how to ring in the new year. So just for you, a few options... Party karate... Where I'd be, as the clock strikes midnight, is Greenmarket Square! A massive stage, 4 Dance Floors, 5 VIP VENUES, a big bar area and state of the art sound and lighting is what's on the menu. Not to mention the good ol' al fresco. In addition the line-up is grand! Live sax and percussion, locnville, dino moran, chris jack, the plastics, etc crew, captain stu and the pretty blue guns

Friday Night Fever

For the working men and women: Time to unwind - head to Relish for a drink. The name perfectly describes its bite-size delicacies and, on a Friday, the bar is always bustling with twenty-somethings and up. HQ is newly opened as is already causing a stir. The venue is famous for scintillating sirloin and fries, housing South Africa's own home-brewed Jack Black draught. Most importantly, Friday nights at HQ are lit up by Latin lounge and vibrant disco. This venue in a great one-stop shop when it comes to Friday requirements - the after-work drink at the bar, the delicious dinner and the great night out. Kink is the new burlesque-inspired haven for a drink, always full of Friday night party-goers. Meanwhile while The Waiting
