A must for night life lover. Great party athmosphere.This street is a mix of bars, restaurants, shops, cafes, museums, curio stores, some theatres, hotels and a lot of entertainment venues. You have not seen Cape Town if you have not visited Long Street! I Wanna go back again and again. Although it can be dangerous if you travel alone.

Our first impresson was not really good. But a second visit gave us another impression. That was when we arrived by Boem street and reached a more interesting part with shops and eateries. Some of the shops at number 76 were quite a sight!

Located in the heart of the city this is one place you do not wanna miss. Quite during the day, this place transforms at night. There are of pubs to choose from. One of the more popular clubs "The Loop" is located a little off long street. You get options for Indian food as well via multiple joints. A word... More

Along with Green Market Sq a walk along Long Street is a must to get the party vibe of Cape Town. Long Street has great shopping and a large variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants to take your pick from. You can visit at night, but like any major city you need to be careful.

It's Located in the city centre of cape town, with a great atmosphere all the day long except at late night that could be dangerous. You cAn find all kind of shops with very good prices, better than the malls (Waterfront, canal walk...) and also a lot of pubs to eat or drink something enjoying the atmosphere around. Even at...

Just like any other downtown street in Africa, this street is a mix of bars, restaurants, cheap shops, not so cheap shops, tourism stuff, et cetera. Not really special, however, if you are around, just take a walk there. The streets around Long Street, with the markets, are nicer if you ask me.

Long Street is one of the main streets in Cape Town. It is full of shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, museums, curio stores, some theatres, hotels and a lot of entertainment venues. As the name implies, it is a somewhat long street and is great for walking. Highly recommended!
