Port Elizabeth Nightlife – Clubs, Bars & Nightlife Tips

Port Elizabeth Nightlife Tips

There’s a variety of nighttime establishments in Port Elizabeth. Choose one or try them all!

News Cafe

This bar is on your way to the casino from the Boardwalk complex entrance. You’ll hear music and voices coming from the bar as you walk into the complex, but it seems to be hit or miss in terms of the crowd.


Barney’s is a restaurant and pub located right on the beach, just down from Shark’s Pier. It always has a fairly good-sized crowd and seems to be a popular after-work stop. Like the News Cafe, it’s a good place to relax for happy hour and get ready to start the evening.

Stage 7

Stage 7 is an ideal place to relax and have a wonderful evening. The place is calm and very clean. The staff are friendly and very professional. Stage 7 is owned by Mr. Brian Jerling, an international cricket umpire, and a Portuguese lady who sings beautifully. They’re both excellent behind the bar – very entertaining – and they have the wildest shooters you can imagine. There’s an indoor BBQ facility available and they have an excellent menu at good prices.

Arguments and fighting are not allowed. if you arrive intoxicated , you will not be served.


Aqua is a must-do club if you like to dance and have fun. The usual age group is 18 to 30. Aqua is a gay cub but you would never know it – everybody is welcome. The place is packed by midnight and doesn’t close until the sun comes up. ID is required at door and you will be searched prior to entry.
