Bang Bang Club Stylish party bar with toughest door in town
hoursWed. - Sat. 10pm-4am
Its owners claim that a frustration with Cape Town nightlife brought Bang Bang Club to life, essentially shooting the competition dead with a riotous dance and lounge scene that recruits local musical acts and international house DJs for weekly club events like Anything Goes Fridays that coincide with periodic CD release parties.
Located within a cluster of three interconnecting bars along two floors, Bang Bang's main club room is composed of an L-shaped bar with sleek barstools and plasma screens opposite a center lounge area with wall-mounted and center room sectional near a prominently placed DJ booth. Walls are strewn with eerie forest scenes in-between tufted-leather padding and glittery details.
Upstairs, the Mezzanine Bar offers more seating along high-back banquettes with additional cocktail service. VIPs should try to book into the Boom Boom Room with its rock star vibe and very own private bar that keeps lines to a minimum with showoff in-and-out privileges to the main club throughout the night.
Thursday and Friday tend to be the best club nights for locals, receding a bit on Saturday as the area is inundated with weekend party warriors.
