MOTHER CITY PARTY CAPITAL
Cape Town City Bowl by night
If you’re looking for fun vibes and an excuse to stay out all night, visit Long Street, party capital of the Mother City.
Long Street has a buzzing energy and it’s one of Cape Town’s best spots for browsing during the day or a big night out on the town.
Most of the shops, restaurants, bars are accessible. But all the other ventures with a double story or on second floor are not. So keep that in mind before you sent out on your journey. (Phone ahead – Some number below)
