Located in the vibrant long street in Cape Town, the mojito Cafe is one of the bar, nice looking outside. Happy hours are 17 to 19h and after 23h for some cocktails only, for an good price of 35R.

I found this place while I was reading an articles about nice spots in Cape Town. The journalist was right about this place. If you go there between 4 to 7 pm, you can have a cocktail for just 35R and this deal is incredible! I met some nice guys from Cape Town and I really enjoy my night there.... More

This is my #1 fav in Cape Town. The whole feel about it makes me want to travel to Cuba. Another reason I love this place is because it's the 1st place I took my partner to before we started dating so it has great sentimental value. Live bands also separate it from the rest of the places on this... More
