The area known as District Six got its name from being the Sixth Municipal District of Cape Town in 1867. Destructed under Apartheid, it was a community that prided itself on diversity at a number of levels – language, religion, economic class, geographical area of origin – and became a living example of how our differences can strengthen a community, and that these differences should be embraced rather than feared.
The CBD is the heart of Cape Town, and Long Street is its major artery. Running all the way from the Cape Town Convention Centre, cutting through the middle of the CBD, and ending at Kloof Street, Long Street forms a big part of the city’s street culture. By day, the street is teeming with people popping in and out of shops and cafés, but when the sun drops behind the mountain, the restaurants, bars and clubs come to life.
