Johannesburg travel guide

  • Cosmopolitan Johannesburg (also known as Joburg or Jozi) sprawls for miles, sprouting upper-income suburbs like satellite towns one of them, sophisticated Sandton, is the business and economic capital of South Africa. Soweto, home to most of Johannesburg's black population, lies to the southwest, a 20 square km conglomeration of townships with homes that range from millionaire mansions and neat middle-income housing to the tin shacks of squatter camps. The city built on gold has seen its landmark yellow mine dumps recycled and replaced by skyrise buildings and glitzy shopping malls, and its recent apartheid history remembered in superb new museums. Soaring chrome and glass buildings, housing opulent international hotels and corporate giants, pepper the leafy streets of a string of exclusive northern suburbs among them, rich Rosebank, elite Sandhurst, bohemian Melrose Village and foody Greenside. Across a canopy of green, the horizon is spiked by the outline of downtown Johannesburg, slowly stirring from its no-go dilapidation. Six-lane highways and swirling freeways indicate the importance of the car.

  • In this cosmopolitan city of myriad cuisines you'll find traditional Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Indian and Chinese through to authentic Thai and Argentinean. South Africans are great meat eaters, so steak houses flourish. Greenside is packed with smart restaurants, but all the northern suburbs have their stars. Melville, Parktown North, Melrose Arch and trendy Parkhurst are particularly good locations.

    Lucky Bean

    The dimly-lit Lucky Bean (not to be mistaken for a coffee house) is somewhat of a local institution; an atmospheric local restaurant and bar serving excellent South African cuisine - steaks, stews, and several vegetarian options. Features live DJ sets.

    Carnivore

    Ravenous meat eaters sit around a big open fire and tuck into wild game eland, zebra, springbok, kudu and crocodile carved off Masai spears. The Carnivore in Johannesburg is a franchise of the equally famous counter part in Nairobi, and it has received awards such as Best Restaurant to Take Tourists To and Best Traditional Restaurant. Even if you’re not a carnivore, you can still come here and dine on fish and veggie dishes, and have your dinner accompanied by fine wine.

    The Grillhouse

    Despite its straightforward name, The Grillhouse's menu caters to both meat- and plant-based eaters. Their specialty is, of course, steaks and ribs, but they also have vegetarian options, as well as chicken and seafood. The meat is prepared to perfection - you simply cannot go wrong dining here.

  • Jozi boasts a very lively nightlife. From the sleek bars of top-notch hotels to shebeens (informal drinking places, usually in someone's front room) in Soweto, whatever you're looking for, you'll find it in Jozi. Melville's Seventh Street is popular with night owls, while Rosebank, Rivonia, Norwood and Orange Grove attract the more affluent party crowd. Soweto has crowded bars and live jazz, but it is only advisable to go there on an organised tour.

    Lenin's Vodka Bar

    The revolutionary Lenin's Vodka Bar serves just what one would expect from an establishment bearing such a name - vodka, and plenty of it. If vodka isn't exactly your drink of choice, you'll still enjoy the themed interior and drinks containing other spirits.

    Good Luck Bar

    The longstanding Good Luck Bar (originally an old warehouse for transport vehicles) has gone through quite a few transformations over the years, the latest one resulting in the establishment becoming a live music bar with a crowd in the know coming in for drinks and grungy vibes.

    Montecasino

    This is a replica of a Tuscan village with restaurants, theatres, bars, clubs and a casino. Montecacsino has been given many awards including Best Casino, Best place to take out-of-towners and Best Entertainment Complex. Located north of the city centre.
