Cape Town makes men's top 29 list

Cape Town has been named one of the top 29 cities in which to live by AskMen.com – an online men's magazine.

The cities on the list are diverse, but they all have one thing in common – they're great cities for men to live in. In other words they have much to offer in the way of women, culture and entertainment to offset the current financial crunch, which also influenced the final decision.

The editorial team from AskMen applied a set of criteria that included dating and sex, sports and entertainment, culture, fashion, health, and power and money.

Cape Town, which made it onto the list for its great weather and steady growth, came in at number 27, ahead of Edinburgh and just behind Santiago. Top of the list was Chicago, apparently the ideal destination for men looking for a comfortable, cosmopolitan lifestyle.

Cape Town is considered South Africa's most cosmopolitan city and was praised for its high fashion, exclusive menswear and the number of celebs who jet in and out of trendy night spots until wee hours of the morning.

“The coming year is going to be one of Cape Town’s biggest yet, and it’s the ideal time to come and take advantage of all the growth surrounding World Cup 2010."
