Its hard to describe the eclectic Ruin bars. They are formerly abandoned buildings that are now adorned with mismatched furniture, coloruful decor, and graffiti. They are great to visit, with interesting rooms, stairs and alleyways. But they are overpriced and full of tourists. But I would still go back. Because they are quite fun places to visit.

There are some wonderful old buildings in Cape Town, and the Cape Town Club is no exception. If you go down into the basement there is a lovely old dark bar, complete with old carpets and period furniture – I am convinced the furniture was modern when the bar was originally built! This is where you go to watch magic. In fact the Cape Town Magic Club meet here (which is where I first found the bar). It is a lovely old building with some beautiful furniture inside.

Update: the Cape Town Magic Club now meet at Truth Coffee – still in the city bowl.
