The Grand Daddy Hotel is very nice, but the location is not. Long Street at night does not seem to be a safe place nor the night clubs seem to be nice.

General rule of thumb, everything in CT closes at 7/8pm unless in the Waterfront. But long street bars and clubs are open till late.

Also agree with TravelfeetZA : i won't do shopping on this street. Keep a one hour walking to visit it and then have diner somewhere and some bar music. That's it! There is nothing special on this street for shopping.
