Johannesburg’s club, Taboo, and Cape Town’s Shimmy Beach Club make it on The World’s 100 Best Clubs 2017 list. Ushuaia, a Spanish club, rated number one.
This list is put together by The International Nightlife Association (INA). A non-profit organisation, founded five years ago, aimed to “represent the entities involved in the nightlife sector, including restaurants, bars, clubs, nightclubs, lounges, hotels, and the most important suppliers,” their site read.
Further, they provide guidance in a form of education, training, and give access to expert consultants. These guys share ideas on how to run such businesses efficiently and ensure a world-class quality nightlife service is given.
Heyi, maaan! Isn’t this interesting? There are people who care about our partying scene, interesting. Back to the news…
To become a member, it ranges from no fee at all to 1000 Euros. That’s close to R16 000 – 00 (Sixteen thousand rands) yearly. Maybe that’s why Rockerfella, The Establishment, Eyadini Lounge and Max’s Lifestyle aren’t on this list, kuyadura, yeyi! (Thinking out loud. [Laughs])
Shimmy Beach Club, where Black Coffee held his residency, was on The World’s 100 Best Clubs in 2015 and 2016, where it took #68 and #67 respectively.
This year, Shimmy dropped to #72 and Taboo took #86.
If SA’s clubs would adopt this, it would or might make our nightlife a better experience than it currently is.
