This week saw Shimmy Beach Club reveal new additions to their menu just in time for the summer season, check it out…
The Socialite had absolute fomo as we missed Tuesday night’s razzle at one of Cape Town’s premier beach club and restaurants but never fear we have got the scoop just for you. The night was hosted by local personality Jeannie D and also saw pop group Sterling EQ perform live for media and invited guests.
Local celebs in attendance included the likes of Eban Etzebeth, Nicky van der Walt, Siya Kolisi, Steven Kitshoff, Rob Vember, Twala Ngambi and Brennan Wright.
Comprising eight different venues, Shimmy sports a 300-seater restaurant, a 13-metre bar, and stunning furniture that can be moved around to suit individual events, a Heineken deck, conference and VIP meeting rooms, a pool deck, a restaurant deck, a private man-made beach, and an area where the family can kick back and relax. It can be transformed into a glamorous paradise for just about any event – be it dinner, business or partying – all under one roof.
Recent upgrades have elevated its status to international standards, making it one of a kind in South Africa. With more restaurant space, a permanent stage set up, a new Shimmy boutique, kitchen upgrades and improved booking systems, Shimmy can cater for any event, be it for ten people or 2,000.
The newest addition is the venue’s sexy summer menu. Introduced by Executive Chef Adrian Cook – formerly from The Cradle Restaurant at the Cradle of Humankind – the menu is colourful with vibrant Mediterranean influences including healthy options and great choices for kids and vegetarians. The focus is on flavour and good value for money. Shimmy sources the best, local produce such as free-range chicken; grass-fed hormone-free beef and SASSI approved fresh fish. They buy locally and keep it as natural as possible to reduce its carbon footprint. Trying the Spanish-influenced whole salt-baked line fish is a must, as is the cinnamon chocolate fondant.
“Shimmy is more than just a venue, it’s a lifestyle – a premium entertainment hub that’s the perfect place for friends and family to meet and have a good time”, comments Shaun Novitzkas, Shimmy Beach Club General Manager. “From acrobats to glamorous, sexy dancers, Shimmy pulls out all the stops, making it the place to be while taking in the sun and chilling by the sea – a truly unforgettable experience.”
