Great place to get a hang-over. Lots of bars and eateries each rather unique. Lots of places with DJ or live music

We don't really understand the good reputation of Long St. The ambiance is missing and besides being a party street there isn't really much to the place. We expected a vibrant street but got a tourist trap instead. Will avoid the place in the future.

I have been to many cities and visited many of the famous strips/streets and I am not sure what the hype is about Long St. The shopping isn't very good. It has a few good stores, but nothing that stood out. There are a few...More

Wow, where to start. Long street is known for its night life that goes on and on until you can no longer stand. It caters for all. The food is amazing, the night clubs even better. Tip:call a cab at the end of it all,...More

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.
Are the shops open on Sundays?

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.
