Long Street is one of the oldest streets in the iconic City of Cape Town famously marked by Victorian architecture adorned with delicate wrought-iron balconies dating back to the early 1800s, historically lionised places of worship and the city's most vibrant and iconic nightlife scene.
Long Street gained notoriety in the 1970s as the main site for political demonstrations and anti-apartheid performances and the street's maverick nature and energy remained as it burgeoned into South Africa's cultural and entertainment hub.
"The CBD is the heart of Cape Town, and Long Street is its major artery."
"From bohemian-hipster-style gatherings to out-of-the-ordinary club scenes, the street’s nightlife is nothing short of awesome."
"Long Street is Cape Town’s oldest party street – and after dark it doesn’t do tranquil."
