Beach Wedding Venue
Shimmy is a reflection of Cape Town’s natural and cultural magnificence, which have earned it a reputation as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Just four short years since it opened its doors, Shimmy has been embraced by Capetonians from all walks of life as an escape from the everyday, in addition to being voted one of the world’s top ten beach venues.
This positive reception is primarily owed to Shimmy’s versatility, with the venue being divided into several unique rooms and lounges, catering to a variety of interests and occasions. The venue boasts a designated children’s area, where little ones will be watched over by experienced childminders to ensure that every family member has a memorable experience.
All of these features combine to make Shimmy Beach Club the perfect venue for everything from the simplest family get-together to ultra-exclusive soirees and elaborate celebrations.
The comfortable yet elegant 220-seater restaurant serves both simple fare and gourmet cuisine, with a variety of seasonal menus featuring dishes made from fresh, locally-sourced and organic ingredients, all expertly combined to achieve the perfect balance of flavours with Italian, French, Asian and Cape influences.
From the restaurant, the diner’s eye is led across the expansive deck, over the white sands of the private beach and out onto the glittering waters of the Atlantic as it stretches toward the horizon, offering one of the best views in the Cape. The sparkling Infinity Pool provides the ideal vantage point to an unforgettable Cape Town sunset in the summer months and is considered to be one of the most popular “view points” in the city.
A destination like no other, Shimmy Beach Club is a place for families and loved ones to spend holidays and special occasions together with great food, attentive service, and a uniquely Capetonian vibe. Shimmy is also a choice spot for fans to enjoy live screenings of major sporting events, and an elegant venue for business conferences, to which the smartly appointed boardroom is perfectly suited.
Shimmy is also well known for its exclusive, tailored events, as its versatility lends itself to occasions of any size and theme. The Shimmy Beach Club events team is available to assist in arranging exceptional events – ranging from high-profile pre-parties, launches, fashion shows, corporate breakfasts and both intimate and larger musical performances, to name but a few.
Finally, when the week draws to a close and evening falls, the Shimmy Pool Deck (sporting its own 13-metre bar) has been known to transform into a high-end nightclub – featuring leading international and local DJs, dancers and other vibrant entertainment. At such occasions, the legendary Shimmy cocktail menu, replete with sophisticated classics and innovative Shimmy originals, makes a welcome appearance. The venue’s clever layout ensures that the restaurant section retains its relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere while the adjoining nightlife continues on well into the evening.
No trip to Cape Town is complete without a Shimmy Beach Club experience, so be sure to book a day, or night, to remember.
