Cape Town has been listed as the 11th best city in the world for 2022, according to the Timeout Index quiz.

The “Mother City” bagged the spot based on hiking spots, food, cultures, beaches, and nightlife. It also outranked major cities including New York, London, Tokyo, and Lisbon. 

With that in mind, here are five things to do in Cape Town this weekend:

The Century City Natural Goods Market 

Shake off the winter blues and check out the last Century City Night Market for the season! Hosted at the Intaka Island Eco-Centre, the market will have great food, artisans and musicians. 

This Friday, you can enjoy a draught beer or a red wine while listening to local artists including The Porchlights and West Coast Wolves. 

The market will run from 4pm-9pm and secure parking will be available. 

Beer pong Fridays at Randy Warthog Bar & Grill

Gather your best players and kick off your weekend with some friendly beer-pong at Randy Warthog Bar & Grill in Green Point any Friday from 5pm.  

Get there early to make use of their 5pm to 7pm Happy Hour or order food for R100 or less.

Learn how to make origami from a Guinness World Record holder

Artist Juanne-Pierre De Abreu (JooJ) in December 2019 was awarded by Guinness World Records for the world’s largest display of origami butterflies. It took almost thirty thousand hand-folded origami butterflies for the local artist to claim the record. 

Now, he can teach you the ancient Japanese art of origami as he creates his new exhibition, “Reimagining the Greats”. 

Book a slot to learn how to make your own origami every Saturday & Sunday from 12h00 – 16h00 at the Art Haus Gallery

Be inspired at Veronica Paeper’s Romeo and Juliet

This weekend is the last chance to catch Veronica Paeper’s Romeo and Juliet ballet. 

Cape Town City Ballet is hosting the show at Artscape in the Opera House from 4 to 28 August. 

William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is the quintessential boy-meets-girl tale, tracing the life course of the star-crossed lovers. 

Roll on the fun at an indoor roller-skating park 

Think neon lights, good music, and good ol’ roller skating fun! Rollercade is the first indoor roller skating amusement park in Cape Town. 

Pack some socks and make a booking online here

For a 2 hour session, it will be R150 (including skates and safety gear) or R80 if you bring your own skates.
