What to do at night in Cape Town? You will be utterly spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out in South Africa. On the whole, food is affordable and the standard of food is usually excellent. Service is good. Cusine ranges from seafood, Malay curries and international cuisine to steak houses. For kosher food try Avron's in Sea Point and for halaal food try Biesmiellah in the Bo Kaap.
I like Osumo, Kauai and Wellness Warehouse Cafe for divine fresh salads and smoothies. Vegetarians are well catered for there. Have a look at the Eat Out and Dining Out websites for more ideas.
After that you could head down Long Street for anything from stand up comedy, live music to an all night boogie. Green Point and Camps Bay also have a good few clubs and cocktail bars. To get about call a Rikki cab. They are London style share-cabs that are well priced and safe. It's safe to walk about the busy areas but I wouldn't get drawn into conversations with people on the street trying to sell things to you. Just say no!
For something completely different, how about an evening cycle tour? Or maybe a moonlight hike up Lion's Head. For the cycle tour which is a 13 kilometre route that starts at 16.00pm at Cape Grace visit the operator website - Bike and saddle. For the full moon hike, take a turn up Signal Hill and find a parking space early. It's a popular walk and can get crazy full of people. Take some snacks or sandwiches and a bottle of wine and head up to watch the full moon rise.
