The World’s Best Clubs - Cape Town’s Aces ‘n’ Spades
62 Hout Street
Big-wave chaser Grant ‘Twiggy’ Baker jumped at the chance when a boyhood friend, Reg Macdonald, returned to South Africa after running hot clubs in Hollywood, including the Nacional, Tokio and the Ivar.
The fruit of their collaboration is Aces’n’Spades, a self-titled ‘good bar where bad things happen’, and a magnet for the A-list of:
surf (John John Florence, Mick Fanning)
and film (Orlando Bloom and Kevin Spacey).
There’s a vast selection of whiskeys and around 10 different beers on tap from local breweries.
On weekends the place rocks out. “It was meant to be a quiet bar,” says Baker. “It was never really meant to be a place to dance, but between 12 and 2am pretty much the whole place is a raging dancefloor.”
