Weekend Getaway Guide: Darling, South Africa.
Slide Nr 6
The Party – Tell anyone in Cape Town you’re going to Evita se Perron, and they’ll know where you’re headed. The town, the venue and its famous performer are practically synonymous, and no visit is complete without an evening here at the former Darling train station. After its conversion into a cabaret, restaurant, bar, museum, art gallery and shop, the venue was named with a nod to Uys’ drag alter ego; the “most famous white woman in South Africa”, Evita Bezuidenhout appears on stage regularly, so book a table for the dinner show in advance. Needless to say, some of the show’s political satire is lost on the uninitiated, but there’s still plenty of entertainment to be had for those less informed about South African politics and history.
