add a review & photos

Beefcakes is a spectacularly camp drag bar offering fierce queens and half-naked muscle marys. Designed as a homage to Miami’s South Beach in the 50s – think of Mae West travelling muscle man show.

Located in the heart of De Waterkant, this is a great place to have a gay night out in Cape Town. You can enjoy a gourmet burger and watch the show. Bitchy Bingo on Tuesdays is always fun.

weekday: Mon - Sat: 19:00 - 12:00

Alexander Bar

add a review & photos

Alexander Bar attracts a mixed crowd of gay and straight locals and tourists. It’s located at the edge of Cape Town’s gay village.

There is an antique rotary dial telephone system that allows you to chat with the other punters. Nice idea. There’s actually a bar in Bangkok that has the same feature.

The music is more jazz than pop so this is a good place to come if you don’t like Kylie and Ga Ga. A range of affordable craft beers are available along with cocktails and local wines.

You can also dial 9 to ring the bartender!

There’s a theatre upstairs where you’ll find theatre shows, comedy and poetry readings.

weekday: 11:00 - 01:00
weekend: 11:00 - 01:00

features: bar, music, dancing, karaoke, live music, cafe, restaurant.
