Grahamstown is certainly a town in South Africa well-known for its nightlife. It’s been called a ‘student village’ as it houses the popular Rhodes University, so it’s no wonder there are countless bars, pubs and nightclubs to keep its young learners entertained!

We shot many bars, pubs & nightclubs while there, one of them being “Prime” at 63 New Street.

Prime offers the latest upmarket and trendy nightclub experience in Grahamstown. Previously known as Equilibrium (Est. 1999) and comprehensively revamped in Feb 2012, Prime has been providing the best in local, national and international talents to Grahamstown and the Eastern Cape for the past decade.

We had a lot of fun shooting this, and it’s definitely got us wanting to go back to Grahamstown soon!

I’ve always heard stories about The Rat & Parrot in Grahamstown, South Africa.

But I never believed them until I saw for myself the raucous behaviour that goes on amongst its devoted patrons – 90% of them students from nearby Rhodes University!

Our ‘Crew’ for the night!

Some of the drunk students we captured on film are hilarious and absolutely perfect to truly capture the atmosphere and essence of what you can expect here!

We had so much fun and it was an honour shooting their profile for them.

Everyone there was game and put their best foot forward when the camera was rolling…………. Thank you!

Shooting the famous ‘Highlander’ in Grahamstown for Skybok was an absolute delight.

It’s a fantastic spot to come for a drink and a meal in the evening and socialize with friends or simply watch the latest sporting event.

They serve fantastic meals and I personally think it’s a winning spot to hire out for a function you are having.

Our ‘Crew’ for the night!

Click HERE for official pictures Skybok took of The Highlander, as well as The Lowlander downstairs.

The Lowlander is also a bar and space for people to have private functions.

We shot the Highlander during the day and actually came back to get The Lowlander that night – where we were met by a massive 21st party which we soon joined in with after we shot!

The whole Highlander venue lies adjacent to Saint Andrews College, and I have a feeling this spot is very popular for birthday parties and special occasions celebrated by students!

Fully licensed and with wheelchair access, the Lowlander also opens up (just like the Highlander above it) to an area where smokers can go.

It was absolute madness and loads of fun.

We took some hilarious pictures – see them HERE.

Hope you enjoy its video profile!
