A lot of party animals will know Barmooda Lounge in Observatory Cape Town.

Barmooda offered a relaxed space for its patrons. This contrasted with the high-energy house rhythms that came from the DJ’s decks. From their intimate Thursday night live performances to now-famous street parties. Tragically, this is all history. The club burned down on Thursday 14 June 2012.
