The high-energy hub of the harbourside at night is what Cape Town’s premier attraction, the V&A Waterfront, is so famous for; and it’s what Good Night Fridays are about.
The fourth and final installment of 2019 takes place on 27 September, with a programme packed full of activities – from creative installations and DJs at The Watershed, to food-and-drink experiences coupled with toe-tapping entertainment on the Pierhead. Or, make your way to The Silo District for an array of art and design offerings.
