South Africa’s premier beach club and restaurant, Shimmy Beach Club, has revealed sensational new additions ahead of its summer season. This ultimate lifestyle venue balances the style of international party life and the laid-back atmosphere of Cape Town that we know and love, making it a world-class venue to rival the likes of Monaco and Ibiza’s beach club scene.
Comprising eight different venues, Shimmy sports a 300-seater restaurant, a 13-metre bar, and stunning furniture that can be moved around to suit individual events, a Heineken deck, conference and VIP meeting rooms, a pool deck, a restaurant deck, a private man-made beach, and an area where the family can kick back and relax. It can be transformed into a glamorous paradise for just about any event – be it dinner, business or partying – all under one roof.
Recent substantial upgrades have elevated its status to international standards, making it one of a kind in South Africa. With more restaurant space, a permanent stage set up, a new Shimmy boutique, kitchen upgrades and improved booking systems, Shimmy can cater for any event, be it for ten people or 2,000.
The newest addition is the venue’s sexy summer menu. Introduced by Executive Chef Adrian Cook – formerly from The Cradle Restaurant at the Cradle of Humankind – the menu is colourful with vibrant Mediterranean influences including healthy options and great choices for kids and vegetarians. The focus is on flavour and good value for money. Shimmy sources the best, local produce such as free-range chicken; grass-fed hormone-free beef and SASSI approved fresh fish. They buy locally and keep it as natural as possible to reduce its carbon footprint. Trying the Spanish-influenced whole salt-baked line fish is a must, as is the cinnamon chocolate fondant.
An exciting summer campaign called ‘Summer Calling’ starts on November 30 2014. These ten weekends will be filled with great party nights on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays, as well as a few mid-week parties thrown in. Featuring international DJs and pool parties from 3pm to the early hours of the morning. On Fridays, “Shimmy Anthems” parties start to the sound of deep house DJs. Saturdays see “Shimmy Pool Party”, when it cools down with Ibiza-style parties, amazing dinners overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and cool DJs playing on a poolside stage. Sundays continue to deliver the best party in Cape Town, with the return of the legendary “Goldfish Submerged Sundays”.
“Shimmy is more than just a venue, it’s a lifestyle –a premium entertainment hub that’s the perfect place for friends and family to meet and have a good time”, comments Shaun Novitzkas, Shimmy Beach Club General Manager. “From acrobats to glamorous, sexy dancers, Shimmy pulls out all the stops, making it the place to be while taking in the sun and chilling by the sea – a truly unforgettable experience.”
