The Cape Town Pub Crawl was inspired by London's legendary Monopoly Board Pub Crawl, a popular event first organised by Tim 'The Tourman' Oberg in 2003, which covered 14 pubs in 6 hours. We felt that Capetonians deserved a similar challenge.
And so in 2008, a group of no more than 50 friends took to the Mother City streets for the inaugural Cape Town Pub Crawl: Buitengracht to Buitenkant and Back! It proved to be a huge success and became an annual event, growing bigger every year.Now an established event on Cape Town's annual calendar, the Cape Town Pub Crawl is designed as a unique way to experience the heritage, diversity, culture and nightlife of the oldest and most beautiful city in South Africa, while visiting some of the best pubs and bars that our city has to offer. The perfect way to meet new people and make new friends!
Starting at mid-day, we'll visit 10 venues throughout the inner-city, in as many hours. Your mission is to have a drink (a pint of beer, shot of tequila, or whatever your challenge) at each venue on the route, unless you're just coming along for the walk and a few casual drinks with your mates (who are you kidding!), which is perfectly acceptable too. All venues along the route are within walking distance.
The crawl is organised with the full encouragement and cooperation of each venue we visit. A crew of experienced organisers are available to assist you on the day.
Although this is a pub crawl, we do ask that you practice responsible drinking: pace yourself and know your limits. Please take extra care by making prior arrangements to get yourself and your friends home safely.
