...for your upcoming End of Year Function

In May 2017 we posted an article reminding everyone to start booking their dates for their end of year functions, and here we are – cannot believe it is October already. Thought we would feature our top 3 venues and villas in Cape Town for events to guide you with options.

Top 3 Event Venues in Cape Town according to NVD Property:

1. Nasdak

Nasdak Media24 Events Venue Cape Town

The most popular venue for the year by far is Nasdak, situated at the Media 24 building. Nasdak is currently almost fully booked for the whole of November and December. It can accommodate up to 150 pax seated for a dinner / dance and up to 250 pax for a cocktail event.

2. Cartel Rooftop Venue

Situated at 71 Waterkant Street in the heart of Cape Town CBD, Cartel Rooftop is a very popular option for birthday parties, yearend functions as well as weddings. The venue can accommodate 100 pax for a seated dinner / dance and up to 220 pax for a cocktail event.

3. East City Studios

East City Studios Top Cape Town Events

This blank canvas is any event planner’s dream – let your creative juices flow and transform this into your wildest dreams. Situated at 62 Roeland Street, it has magnificent 360 views of Cape Town and can accommodate up to 120 pax for a seated dinner / dance and 220 pax for a cocktail event.

Top 3 Luxury Villas for Event according to NVD Property:

1. Luxx Villa

For a smaller, intimate food and wine pairing type of event – a villa option would be ideal. You always need to consider the neighbors when it comes to events at villas – so keep in mind guests would need to get shuttled in or use Uber and no loud music or party into the early hours of the morning.

2. La Mer

Personally one of my favorites. With amazing views of the ocean and no immediate neighbors along with a parking area opposite the property – what’s not to like!  La Mer Villa is also an ideal venue for smaller dinner events or cocktail receptions.

3.  Heatherfield

HEATHERFIELD top accommodation Cape Town

We are hosting our first destination wedding here for 30 pax in November and cannot wait to share the pictures with you afterwards. It’s going to be spectacular. Not many people are aware of this gem in the heart of Tamboerskloof.  Heatherfield is definitely under our top 3 villas for events.

Every year we get hundreds of enquiries for year end functions – most of them very last minute. And each year the planners tell me: “Next year, we will start planning earlier!”  Needless to say that hardly ever happens and I’ll yet again get frantic phone calls in October and even as late as November and December asking me for availability.  (You don’t want to end up having your year end party on a Monday and there are only so many Fridays and Saturdays in November and December before Cape Town shuts down on Friday the 15th of December!)

We ended up hosting year end functions for 2016 in January 2017 and some companies are even considering Christmas in July this year.

Herewith some pointers to make sure your year end party is a memorable one – for all the right reasons!

  • Cocktail celebration vs. sit down dinner & dance.
  • Number of attendees you need to accommodate.
  • Area (Cape Town CBD vs. Stellenbosch wine farm).
  • Date – would you like your event during the week (day or evening event) or on a weekend.  Most popular day during the week is a Thursday, and the most popular day during the weekend (especially for a formal sit down) is a Saturday night.
  • Budget – there’s always a budget.  Ask your finance department to give you an indication.  Exclusive venue hire in Cape Town vary between R20 000 & R185 000 so consider this when taking into account your overall budget for the event.

Once you have the above info you can send us your brief and we’ll be able to suggest venue options for you based on availabilty and #BOOM – Year End Party venue and date booked! Once this is confirmed you have the rest of the year to plan the menu, theme, welcome drinks, entertainment and finer details.

We’ve decided to feature Cartel Rooftop situated at 71 Waterkant Street in this article to give you an idea of what we can do here.


Cocktail Style – 200 pax
Seated dinner & dance – 120 pax
