Pretoria Travel Guide

Pretoria Nightlife

The bulk of Pretoria''s nightlife is located in Hatfield, near the university, and Menlyn Square in the city centre. Standing proud amidst the carnage of venues that come and go are some time honoured staples that visitors to Pretoria should experience. Tings ''n Times has a Caribbean vibe and some great live acts and music performances. For more Rasta-inspired good times, visit nearby Cool Runnings - that''s genuine beach sand on the floor. Drop Zone on Hatfield Square is also a worthy nightclub that stays open very late. One of the city''s biggest clubs is Legends, equally popular with gay and straight patrons. For hard rock and headbanging good times fly over to nearby Zeplin''s. Eastwood''s in Arcadia has been voted best pub in Pretoria many times and is the best place to watch televised sport if you want to capture the intensity and claustrophobia of a live match. A worthy pretender to the throne is Oppikoppi, on Magasyn Hill opposite the Voortrekker Monument. This pub has the best views in town, particularly at sunset, when the braais are lit and the aroma of boerewors seduces patrons into staying for another round or five. Pub devotees may notice that Pretoria has an abundance of Irish-themed bars, seemingly one on every corner. These are all bedecked in clover and serve Guinness but they invariably lack real character. The same cannot be said for German themed Herr Gunther''s Zapfhaus which has got all the lederhosen, bratwurst and oompa music you could want.
