Discover the best things to see and places to go on First Thursdays. We recommend picking a few highlights that catch your attention, and then seeing where the night takes you. To find your way around, pick up one of our City Guide print maps, available at most participating venues and selected hotels.
Even with lockdown restrictions still in place, selected galleries and other attractions continue to extend their opening hours on First Thursdays. We encourage the public to get out and support Cape Town’s galleries and restaurants on First Thursdays, but please do so responsibly.
