As the year comes to a close, it’s important to treat the ones who have been instrumental in taking your business to new heights – your staff. It is important to remember that a year-end event doesn’t necessarily have to be exceedingly expensive – it has to be memorable. We’ve put together a list of our favourite venues in Cape Town that will offer your staff an unforgettable experience.

With this in mind, here are our top six picks for where you should host your year-end event in 2015.

The Lookout

Situated at the V & A Waterfront, this stunning venue offers panoramic views of Cape Town and its breathtaking surrounds that successfully reflect the beauty of the city it’s located in.

Shimmy Beach Club

The ever-sleek Shimmy Beach Club emanates a style and sophistication that is hard found anywhere else. Where lively Ibiza meets laid back Cape Town; this ocean facing escape does its beautiful backdrop of Table Mountain justice. Shimmy’s restaurant can seat up to 220 people, and its outside beach area and infinity pool looking over the Atlantic Ocean are very welcoming on a warm summers evening.

  • Recently voted Cape Town’s Best Club by Zomato users for its design and location.
