Why Shimmy Beach Club Is Voted One of The Best Venues In The World 2018


The International Nightlife Association recently released their ‘World’s 100 Best Clubs 2018‘ list which saw Cape Town’s luxury lifestyle destination, Shimmy Beach Club voted in at an impressive #76. Shimmy has featured on the list every year since it started back in 2015 even reaching up to #67 in 2016!

But what makes Shimmy Beach Club one of SA’s only venues worthy of featuring on the list year after year? The International Nightlife Association focuses on a wide range of criteria when nominating venues. Factors such as aesthetics, location, marketing campaigns, security, originality, booking agents and events, sound systems, features, customer service, contribution to the community and industry and so much more all count towards selecting nightlife venues.

Taking all that into account, it’s a no-brainer that Cape Town’s most sought-after venue lands on this prestigious list year after year.

Shimmy ticks the box in every category when it comes to luxury venues. The Club’s Space is versatile and is great for sultry beach days or a big night out.
