The night life here keeps the city going. It never stops. Stop by at De beer to have some drinks and also check other pubs for good music, live band and smoke some shisha

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.
