Beer, Beer, Beer

If you’re looking for a good draft, Durban has plenty of places for you to wet your whistle after dark.

All The Right Clubs

Clubbing in Durban is a whole new experience. For one of the hottest spots, head over to Cafe Vacca Matta, where all the coolest locals can be seen drinking and dancing the Durban night away. Keep in mind, it has a strict dress code in order to keep ahead of club standards in the area. Ladies are required to wear dress smart and men are required to wear button down lounge shirts, nice pants, and shoes. Discretion based off of attire is up to the doorman!

Tiger Tiger is also a great place to hang out after the sun goes down. As a favorite local spot, you can dance to music from the 80s, 90s, and beyond. The outdoor area, with bar, is a spectacular place to cool down as the inside of Tiger Tiger can get very warm from the dancing and awesome vibes.
