If you consider yourself to be a bit of a social butterfly and always fancy a night out with the lads or an evening with your special lady, then you need to listen up, because we’ve found something that is going to save you loads of cash when going out in Cape Town.
Because let’s face it, FOMO is a real thing and while you’d like to say yes to every social invite that comes your way, eating out at your favourite restaurants and frequenting the hottest places in Cape Town on a regular basis can put a serious dent in your bank balance. And sure, there are discount voucher books that you could use but those can be very limited in terms of what you’re allowed to order. Luckily for us, we’ve just discovered Socialite – an exclusive and affordable membership that gives you between 20 and 25% off at some of the best restaurants, spas, activities and getaways in and around Cape Town and there’s no restrictions to what you can order.
We know you might be thinking you’ve heard this all before but Socialite really is different from any loyalty or discount programme you’ve forked out for before. With this magical little membership card in your wallet, you can visit multiples spots during your membership AND at restaurants you get 25% off your ENTIRE bill up to a table of 4 people. It’s pretty much a surefire way to be the most popular person in your group of mates – no hard graft required. The Socialite card gets you access to over 1400 Members-only discounts at a variety of restaurants, day spas, fun activities and getaways in and around Cape Town – including spots like The Odyssey gastro pub, Cattle Baron in Canal Walk, Newlands Brewery, Sangrita Tequila Bar, Casuarina Wellness Centre at The Commodore Hotel, and The Three Boutique Hotel in the CBD, just to name a few.
But, perhaps the coolest thing about Socialite (for us at least) is the incredible restaurant discounts. Your membership gets you up to 25% off your entire bill (including starters, mains, dessert, AND drinks!) for up to a table of four people. And, the best bit is you can order whatever you like. There’s no special menu to choose from or no limits on what you can order. Socialite is also South Africa’s ONLY platform that offers a discount on drinks and there’s no limit to what or how many drinks you’d like order either. The list of restaurants available are also some of the top eateries in Cape Town so there’s no chance you will get bored and there’s also plenty to explore and discover amongst the list of participating spots. The great news is there’s also no catch (for reals). When eating out at restaurants, Socialite members can enjoy 25% off their entire restaurant bill from Monday to Thursday and 20% off their entire restaurant bill on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
As for the other benefits, Socialite also offers great discounts on activities, so you and your friends can keep yourselves busy on the weekends! Whether you want to go on the Jolly Roger Pirate Boat, head to Newlands Brewery, give some Stand Up Paddle Boarding a go, or visit the Paarl Crocodile Farm, there’s a wealth of awesome things to do and capitalise on. Going on holiday in the Western Cape will also be a whole lot more affordable with 25% off your bill at a list of incredible boutique hotels and accommodation spots in and around Cape Town.
Socialite claims that on average their members save up to R525 a month on eating out, socialising, and getting active – which isn’t bad considering membership fees for the entire year is just R295! Signing up is super easy, just visit the Socialite.Cape Town website, buy your membership online, and start enjoying the benefits. Your card will be sent to you in a matter of days and you can start saving as soon as it arrives.
