Shimmy Beach Club – V &A Waterfront

It’s time to shimmy and shake at Shimmy Beach Club

If you are looking for THE place to go with your work colleagues, friends, family or a romantic dinner for two, then look no further than The V&A Waterfront’s exclusive Shimmy Beach Club. The setting alone is enough to entice you, with gorgeous vistas and a 180-degree view of the working Cape Town harbour around to the majestic Table Mountain.

Ease your way onto one of the loungers on our private beach to soak up the sun, sipping on a glass of Champagne, before taking a dip in our infinity pool with its expansive views over the Atlantic Ocean.

Shimmy Beach Club has a range of menus and different cuisines from which to choose. The seasonal  menu in the Shimmy Restaurant is designed by our Executive Chef, Adrian Cook, to highlight fresh produce paired perfectly with delicious ingredients. The spacious restaurant opens up onto the white sands of the private beach with a fantastic atmosphere. For something a little lighter, indulge in the luxurious speciality sushi or a wood-fired pizza from our oven, on the laid back, soft style couch pockets of the Pool Deck.

Are you looking for the ultimate venue for your end of year function, or to celebrate that special birthday coming up? Shimmy Beach Club has ten venues that can be booked for your private events. Our lush interiors and opulent settings will take any event to the next level. The Jamesons Whiskey Room can offer whiskey tastings which are ideal for private functions of up to 20 people.

The Shimmy Heineken Lounge transforms from a seated area, into an indoor dance floor, where you can spend the evening dancing to funky house music played by our resident DJ’s.  Over the summer season, Shimmy Beach Club boasts the biggest music line up in South Africa, with 9-weeks of local and international headlining acts.
