New Years Parties in Cape Town

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,

Night Life

Tuesdays are Trouble

Tuesdays are trouble in Cape Town, and here's why... A pre-emptive intervention approach to mid-week stress is on the Mothercity's Tuesday To-Do List. Forget weekends in the culture of the Cape - Tuesdays are a full force party day. For those keen to kick it up to some commercial radio hits with students, lumo-lovers and bachelorette partiers, "Summer of 69" style, the Claremont strip is watering hole of choice.  Claremont favourites include Springboks, Tiger Tiger and  Tin Roof. Tiger Tuesday’s promise free drinks ‘til ten and top of the chart tracks to get you swaying. The plush interiors of this well-designed club allow ample bar space and a sunken, dense dance-floor. Be sure to arrive collared, smart-shoed and on time -

The band disappeared off the scene a while to release the 2009 documentary Fokofpolisiekar, which follows the band's exploits. Thanks to the dynamic
