A fantastic opportunity to browse galleries, boutiques, and share a drink with locals as the streets of Cape Town come to life every first Thursday of the month. The majority of the action takes place on the streets surrounding Bree Street. Be sure to make a restaurant reservation if it’s dinner you’re after!
