We walked Long Street a few times during the day, as we were staying just off Kloof Street which runs into Long Street. It has an array of bars, restaurants and shops; not all of which are where I would like to go at night.

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.
