165 Longmarket Street Cape Town 8000 South Africa


Tucked atop a historic Victorian building in the inner core of Cape Town’s downtown, Tjing Tjing is part dance lounge and part rooftop terrace that manages one of the best weekends scene in the CBD. A retro style mixes elements of Shanghai and bush designer under a 200-year old rafter ceiling with Mao red lacquer bar, colonial décor and plank floors that clank with heels and hipster boots until 2am most nights. Outside, during warmer weather, a more modern terrace lounge prevails with overflow seating and additional bar on busier weekends. 


Stylish Victorian rooftop bar with Shanghai style lures Cape Town revelers for electronic music and indie Djs.

Last Word

An all-night tapas menu includes dishes like crispy risotto balls, yellowtail tartare, beer-batter fish n’ chips and pork belly skewers that are surprising delicious with a dark pint.
