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.

    “Awful. On a Tuesday, it was empty except for us. The food was almost inedible. Staff told us the place was full of stag and hen parties at the weekend.“
