Zula Bar, Cape Town’s premier sound bar, is located at number 98 Longstreet.

The night we went to shoot was absolutely packed – see for yourself in the video.

The line was all the way down the road.

It really reflected the vibrant night life of Cape Town, South Africa.

I loved that this venue had people coming in to do all sorts – party, have a quiet drink or just have dinner.

They do breakfasts, lunches and dinners every day of the week.

They have various dance floors in different sections upstairs and downstairs, where people can listen to up to four different types of music on popular nights.

You can order a drink and then walk around until you find your kind of music.

Come in the week for stand-up comedy acts, acoustic music or bands and on the weekends to club.

They’re very well-known for their pizzas if you’re coming in for dinner with friends.

They’re open Mondays to Thursdays from 12pm-2am and on Fridays to Saturdays from 12pm -4am.

Tjing Tjing


No Comments

One of Cape Town’s favourite night clubs, Tjing Tjing is a rooftop bar located just off Longstreet, Cape Town.

We got to shoot on an absolutely packed night!

It was pumping and the video came out exceptionally.

I love their colour scheme and ‘attic’ feel.

The owner is friendly and professional and I can really recommend hiring this place out as a venue for a birthday party, corporate function or business meeting.

It has a festive atmosphere and shooting their official video profile was a dream.

I enjoyed editing this and doing the voice over particularly because I enjoy the venue so much and I wanted to do Ilse Koekemoer (owner)  justice on her fabulous club!

Coming from Cape Town I’m used to my fair share of nightlife ………….. but Friar Tucks was something else altogether!

A classic nightclub in the heart of Grahamstown, South Africa, with a massive dance floor and 2 bars, you won’t be coming home until the early hours of the morning!

It’s been voted as South Africa’s number 1 nightclub.

I absolutely loved the vibe at this venue………. it was packed with students and everyone was having a great time!

I love the music – they often have popular DJs in for the night.

Listen to DJ Skullet’s mix from when he played there in August last year:

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!

If you have a place you would like us to film, get in touch with me!
