Every Friday and Saturday evening, Deco Dance comes alive from its weekday slumber to bring the past back to the present.
Situated in the heart of Sea Point on St Regent road, Deco Dance is in the middle of arguable the most vibey suburb in Cape Town. It therefore has a lot to live up to so as to keep the the local residents, and primary clientele happy in a very competitive industry.
I go to Deco very often, as it is both conveniently positioned for, me living in Bantry Bay, and there is also a vibe everytime I go there. Most nights when one goes there, there will be a fair smattering of brides maids, bachelor/bachelorette parties, as well as people dressing up for the sake of it. People of all ages and persuations frequent Deco, making for a very interesting partying.
What makes one realise that this it not your usual nightclub is when you see the regular DJ busting the grooves. We have come to know him as DJ Fathertime, as he is older than your usual reaident DJ. If I were to has it a guess, I would place his age between 55-80 (I’m not good at guessing ages, but he’s pretty old for his profession). Despite his age, he really knows how to get the dance floor going, and how to get the bachelorettes onto the dancing pole.
For the best Deco experience, get there before 10pm to avoid the entrance fee (R60 for guys, R40 for the ladies). Drinks are well priced, with my usual Castle Lites costing me R16 each. Shots are equally as well priced.
Never a dull moment, go to Deco.
