Where to party in Cape Town’s northern suburbs

After spending the day exploring the impressive Durbanville wine farms near Cape Town, head over to Bellville and Edward Street in the northern suburbs, grab a refreshing cocktail and hit the dancefloor.

Offering an opportunity to party every night from Monday to Saturday, Vacca Matta features DJs playing rhythm’n’blues, hip- hop and house music. The venue club boasts about their energetic, attractive bar staff and unmatched atmosphere.

Buckley’s Pub & Pool Bar features a playlist of metal, rock and commercial music as the soundtrack to your night of hustling friends over a pool table, trying your luck on the slot machines. They sometimes also have event nights. There is no dress code and the only requirement is that you have a good time.

Stones Tygervalley hosts live music, comedians and DJs on a weekly basis. Expect to hear an array of house, rock and commercial music across two dancefloors. Shoot some pool, recline on comfy couches in their lounge area and sing along to your favourite hits with your friends.

If you’re looking for a truly South African Afrikaans experience head over to Danskraal. Touted as the best and only langarm (traditional “long arm” dancing, similar to square dancing) dance party, this venue will allow you to experience a style of dancing unique to the Afrikaans culture. The dance style is reminiscent of more casual, interpretive ballroom dancing and is worth experiencing at least once.
