The freezing temperatures that are currently sweeping over the country shouldn’t stop you from strutting your stuff in your dancing shoes or getting your jol on! In the interest of keeping all of the self-proclaimed party animals on their toes, we have put together a list of some of the best places to party at in South Africa throughout those chilly winter months.

Zulu Jazz Lounge, Durban 

Obviously, if you want to escape the freezing cold during winter in SA, Kwa-Zulu Natal is the place to be - and if extraordinary live music is what you are after, there is no better place to visit than the Zulu Jazz Lounge. Located in central Durban, this classy underground lounge can be found underneath The Playhouse Theatre. Not only is its location incredibly exciting, but this lounge is also well known for exhibiting the most amazing talent, with artists like DJ Krush making regular appearances. If Kwa-Zulu Natal’s warmer climate isn’t enough to convince you to venture outdoors, the warm, soothing vocals of the artists playing at the Zulu Jazz Lounge sure will be!
Numbers Dance Club, East London

Whip out those shapely jeans and sky-high heels - it’s time to explore the entertainment that Numbers Dance Club is so famous for! Seeing as though Numbers Dance Club is considered to be the one of the best nightlife locations in East London, you can always rest assured that it is going to be packed over the weekends. That means plenty of dancing and just the right amount of body heat, making it the perfect wintertime destination for those looking to let their hair down and have a bit of harmless fun despite the less-than-pleasant temperatures. 

The Blues Room, Johannesburg

Sandton’s hidden gem, The Blue Room, has become a firm favourite amongst local party-goers. Aside from its versatile music (you can be sure to enjoy anything and everything from classic blues and jazz to fusion and rock ‘n roll), the venue also offers a cosy atmosphere and a wide selection of delicious cocktails. 

Cape Town Comedy Club, Cape Town

There is nothing quite like a much-needed belly laugh to warm you up on a cold winter’s night – and it is for this reason that the Cape Town Comedy Club secures its place on our list of local winter hotspots. Enjoy the quick wit of South Africa’s best talent along with a warm, hearty meal if you’re also looking to tantalise your taste buds. Don’t forget to take advantage of half-price Sundays!
Why sit in front of the heater longing for those fun, sweaty summer nights out on the town when you can enjoy yourself just as much throughout the wintertime? Come rain, cold or shine… it’s always party time!
