Long Street, Cape Town
Long Street

Long Street is one of the oldest – and in many ways most notorious – streets in Cape Town.  It has a Bohemian flavour, filled with Victorian buildings, theatres, bookstores. ethnic restaurants and bars. It’s a good place to catch live music, particularly on the weekends. When headed uphill, hop on the 101 MyCiTi bus, which makes five stops along the one-way street.  It’s easily the loudest and most energetic thoroughfare in the city, especially after dark, and is best known for its buzzing nightlife 

Kloof Street, Cape Town

Kloof Street is one of the city’s favourite shopping and dining streets. With an eclectic offering of eateries, fashion boutiques, art galleries, interior design shops and historical buildings, it runs parallel to Long Street but is decidedly classier and includes Lifestyles on Kloof, a shopping centre with a variety of shops, a Woolworths grocery store and the Labia retro cinema. The street is somewhat steep, so you may decide to start at the top and walk down, exploring side streets as you go.
