We spent an afternoon walking around and exploring this part of Cape Town. There are some old buildings in Long Street and a few in some of the smaller streets nearby. Lots of bars and restaurants around.

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.
