For the more sports orientated visitor, the Fireman’s Arms is an institution. It has been around since 1864 and is one of Cape Town’s oldest pubs. Its does get busy on Football or Rugby matches so be sure to arrive early and get your table. It has numerous flat screen Tv’s where one can watch their favourite teams.

Tjing Tjing is located in the trendy area of Cape Town central. It is situated on the top floor above Dear Me Restaurant on Longmarket Street. This bar gets very busy on the weekends and the music is a blend of old and new. Be sure to check out their cocktails as they make a mean Old Fashioned. It does get packed  and the wait at the bar can be irritating, however on a warm Summer night, an Old Fashion is all that one needs. Visit them at
