What has replaced Shimmy’s? CABO BEACH CLUB

Cosmopolitan beach hang-out where Shimmy used to be

The brand-new Cape Town Cabo Beach Club, where Shimmy used to be (set among the docks at the V&A Waterfront)– is a modern, cosmopolitan beach hang-out. It exudes glamour, from the stylish velour daybed and shaggy chairs, to the Oyster & Caviar Bar that serves just those food dishes. That does not imply you can’t unwind there, simply do it whilst being beach trendy.

Cabo is glam from the start. The entryway opens into a wide-open, airy indoor area. The flooring is set with couches and comfortable chairs giving you social areas that a group of pals can hang out in to celebrate an occasion or simply life itself.

We love the character of the interior, with its trendy however lively decoration and glamorous textures. It’s considerably Instagrammable. Have a date amongst the bar stools or sandy loungers.

FROM DAYTIME POOLSIDE LOUNGING On to a hot day, outside is where you wish to be. There is a clear blue swimming pool under the palm trees. Lounge on day beds in front of the sea views and order beverages from the outside bar.

… Now to a nighttime vibe

As the sun sets and night shows up, the environment turns from unwinded and cool to dynamic and hot. A resident DJ plays throughout the summertime season, so dancing is on the cards, and you can dine at Violet Restaurant, Cabo’s more senior restaurant.

There’s burnt yellowfin tuna, served with sticky rice, Yuzu ginger soy and a nori-and-sesame salad (R150), or a salt-baked entire bream served with flatbread, carrot hummus and chimichurri (R270).


The Oyster & & Caviar Bar is where you’ll discover the extremely luxurious products– Imperial caviar, which begins at R3 700 for 30g. The oysters are among Cabo’s spectacular experiences– there are 6 various methods they’re served. You can have them separately (R38 each) or a plate of 12 (R360). Take pleasure in this offer with Champagne and a beautiful ocean view on the veranda.
