Clink: The new app in Cape Town that offers users free drinks every day

Where has this been all our lives?



With a first-of-its-kind offering in SA, you can now explore Cape Town’s coolest venues and get a free drink every day. All you have to do is download the awesome new app, Clink, which is available for both Apple and Android devices.

Following on from resounding successes in major cities around the world, The Mother City now joins the growing list of cities that offer app users one free drink per day at all the top venues.

Download the app now to get a seven-day free trial to test it out, then enjoy seven free drinks on the house. Thereafter the concept is simple; you pay a subscription fee of R90 per month for membership to receive the benefit of one free drink every day at one of your favourite establishments.

With R45 for a draught beer at popular spots these days, Clink’s offer of up to 31 drinks for R90 is a sure-fire winner.

How does Clink work?

The app opens with a list view of Clink venues, sorted by the distance from where you are, so you will always see your nearest Clink venue first. You simply choose your preferred venue and choose your preferred drink on offer, show your phone to the bartender to confirm your drink choice and enjoy.
