About us

Club Shakes was founded on the 23rd of April 2011. The brainchild of owner, Morne Blignault, who realised there was a gap in the market for a "super club" in Port Elizabeth.


It took some time before the opening night to put the entire plan into action and this included extensive market research. Once this was completed and all and sundry were satisfied, the Club was born, and the amazing journey began.


Over the last year the club has grown from strength to strength and has proven itself to be PE’s premier night club. We have hosted a vast array of top djs both national and international, and these include DJ Fresh, Roger Goode, Costa(Bump), Lindi Lush, Dizzy(Clubtraxxx), Spiro, Paul Almeida, Dino Bravo, Spinderella, Sasha Martinengo, Afroboogie, Milkshake, Dizzy K, Nelson, Evan Staley, Royal K, Lyle Masters, Bridget Funky B, and many more have graced the club.


The clubs music poilcy and style includes commercial, dance, jacking, birmingham, tech, and various genres of house and dance. This is managed well by residents Dean Upman and DJ Jay who have been there since the clubs inception, as well as the latest acquisitions of Murray V and Jo V. But generally the music is always that of whatever pleases the crowd together with the unique sound that has become Club Shakes


The club boasts the biggest, and arguably the best, sound and lighting system in the eastern cape. Lighting comprises of two 2w full colour lazers, six winner scanners, over ten scattered LEDs, one massive overhanging dancefloor strobe, four moving heads, two rovers and more, coupled with a full hazer and two very large smoke machines. The sound rig comprises of two 10foot speaker stacks and several overhanging speakers , all strategically placed and set to push out over 15,3kw of pure dynamic sound.

All of this gels together to ensure that the visit to Club Shakes is an amazing and unique experience


The clubs main bar has recently been upgraded and is now 16metres in length, ensuring that you never have to wait long for a drink. There is also a smaller bar to serve those who are looking for those fast drinks and shooters.

Furthermore there is an also an upstairs section, with a fully stocked bar, private toilets and capacity to host well over 100 people. This are usually used to host VIPs and guest when there are big events, but is also available for private hire by the general public and patrons.


Club Shakes trades on Fridays and Saturdays, from 8pm until the late (early) hours of the morning. We are also open on any other night where the next day is an official public holiday.


All of the aformentioned has become the recipe that has seen the club grow into one of the country’s best party venue, and the fact that all patrons are treated as equals which is clearly envisaged in the Club slogan.
