History of De Waterkant
The Malay Community played an extremely important role in shaping the area into what it became. They not only brought their religion, but also their skills, such as carpentry and cooking. The Afrikaans spoken in Cape Town is a mixture of Dutch and Arabic, a language still used by Muslims.
With a concentration of fabulous evening venues ranging from dress code upmarket chic dinner and dancing, through to salsa classes and nightclubs filled to the brim with gay abandon, De Waterkant is unique in its variety and eccentricity.
