Shimmy Beach Club, Cape Town, South Africa

If you’re looking to party in Cape Town, then there’s really only one place to do it: Shimmy Beach Club. Located on the waterfront, it’s as close to Ibiza as you’re going to get this side of the Equator. By day, beautiful people with beautiful bodies hang around the infinity pool – cocktails in hand, heels on – but it’s at night that this place really comes alive.

Come dinnertime, the food is mouth-watering: beef carpaccio, fresh fish by the bucket load, and even lobster pizza (ideal if you’re planning on working through the cocktail list). As the music gets louder and Shimmy begins to fill (fast), relocate to one of the bars – there’s at least three to choose from – and get your cocktail on, because they’re some of the best in town.

As the night speeds on by, head outside and shake it under the stars to the DJ. Just don’t shake it so hard you fall into the pool – this ain’t no frat party.
