Then YT kloof’s upstairs section is the place to go for a good time as they have DJs coming in on Fridays and Saturdays. Get there early, to avoid standing the night away.

Take walk through the famous Long Street and also try the places below.
2. Tjin Tjin Rooftop Bar:
This is Japanese bar in a roof of the 200-year-old townhouse with exquisite interiors is the perfect spot to catch the beautiful Cape Town sunsets. Besides that they host an exquisite cocktail menu! Depending on the night, this small space will either be packed and busy or very quiet.
Lounges are sometimes the way to go! If you hoping to bump into the Cape Town’s elite at no hefty entrance fee, head over to Souk. Tuesday to Friday during the day you can enjoy tapas and cocktails at half price at the Souk lounge or terrace. By night, this place has a live DJ set to set the mood for any day of the week. Be it slow Rnb jams or Gqom. On weekends, after 11pm you’re promised a good time with the DJ playing the latest hits from your hip-hop to Qgom until Souk closes at 2am. The friendly bouncers and barmen will definitely have you coming back.
