Get the party started in Johannesburg

Johannesburg has a varied nightlife with an abundance of restaurants, bars and jazz clubs. But the real parties – until the early morning hours – can be found in the Rosebank and Sandton neighbourhoods, where the cosmopolitan inhabitants of the city enjoy a drink in one of the numerous cocktail lounges or dance until the sun comes up.

A full evening's programme

Fashionable, exuberant and sexy. These words best describe nightlife in Sandton City. Trendy lounge bars and hip clubs are located on every corner, so there is enough fun to fill an entire night. A night on the town in Sandton City starts with an aperitif at the fantastic rooftop terrace of the Sun Bar, followed by the intimate and luxurious VIP Room - the perfect spot for a glass of champagne or a cocktail. Or prefer to enjoy a drink in the elegant Cocoon Lounge, perhaps accompanied with a cigar of your choice? When it’s time to break out the moves, the Icon Club or Taboo is close by. Different music styles are played in both clubs, from urban and hip-hop to lively dance music.
