The Long Street Association aims to improve Long Street’s safety, image and pedestrian traffic. We are achieving this by working together as business owners, promoting and celebrating the street while engaging the Long Street community in street-improvement activations. Starting in December 2015 we got together and hired 10 additional law enforcement officers, that secured upper Long Street every Wednesday – Saturday, 8pm – 6am.
Unfortunately, due to the rise in crime in other areas in Cape Town, these officers were given a different mandate and we have been tasked with bolstering the security of the street. As a priority, the members of Long Street Association are engaging strategies to improve the Long Street experience.
Our members include: Stones, SGT Pepper, Cafe Mojito, Royale Eatery, Bob’s Bar, Fiction, Beerhouse, The Dubliner, Long Street Cafe, Bagdad Cafe, Buena Vista Social Club, Nom Nom and Homebase Backpackers Cape Town. Please support them with your business! Contact us, if you are a business and want to join!
