Sophiatown Bar Lounge, corner Jeppe and Henry Nxumalo Streets, Newtown
The perfect chill spot for AmaBEE or Black Diamonds, if you will. Sophiatown is classy with a tinge of Kasi flavour. I’m glad to say it is roomy; just because you may be rubbing shoulders with schelebs or successful businessmen/women it doesn’t mean you’ll have people bumping into your elbow every time they walk past.
If you’ll be joining in the festivities of the Johannesburg Carnival which will start at Newtown and head off to the Mandela Bridge, pop in for a light meal or platter to recuperate. Or, try the Mogodu lim’Mnqusho (R55.00) which is just so delectable! You’ll need the energy for the countdown (and dancing) to the New Year!
