Come Taste The Culture Of Newtown With JHC
Take a bite out of the Newtown pie with a few fun, entertaining, and unique wonders of Newtown.
Newtown has been one of Johannesburg’s underrated suburbs in that people see it merely as a business district and centre when they look at it. While it may be slightly true that there are lots of business and business opportunities in Newtown, there is also quite a vast culture that showcases the history and pride of this suburb. In this article, we are taking a bite out of the Newtown pie and giving you a few fun, entertaining, and unique wonders of Newtown for you to enjoy should you consider taking the city’s map and exploring or if you are looking to make this place your home.
When it comes to ideas on what to do in Johannesburg for a daytime vibe, you should consider crossing over the Nelson Mandela Bridge into Braamfontein, where you can enjoy The Playground Market. Here, you will get more than good food and vibes; there are also some decor and fashion designs from local designers that are just worth a place in your home.
If you are into theatre and stage art, Newtown is practically the hub of South African talent. Many renowned producers, directors and writers curate some of the most thought-provoking, emotion-inducing stage pieces that are showcased in Johannesburg’s Market Theatre, which is located right next to Newtown Junction (a mall in the suburbs that we will touch on later).
Adrenaline junkies, you are also not left behind. Gold Reef City has lots of fun rides and activities you can enjoy by yourself or with loved ones. If you want to get the most out of a Gold Reef City experience, consider signing up for their rewards programme, where you will enjoy specials and promotions designed for loyal customers.
Love a good rooftop view? There are plenty of places closest to Newtown where you can have your daytime brunch and drinks while soaking in the view of the city. Take The Reef Hotel, for example, which has a beautiful and serene rooftop for you to enjoy brunch and sundowners. The vibrant Maboneng also has a rooftop vibe that extends into the night (we will touch on it when we talk about nighttime Jozi activities), and Sandton (which is a taxi away from Newtown) features some amazing rooftops for those looking for an opulent experience.
From Date Night To Painting The Town Red
When it comes to food and drinks surrounded by vibes, one can argue that Johannesburg has this on lock. If you are a Newtown resident or visitor wondering what fun things to do in Newtown at night, you can start at Capello in Newtown Junction, which is a restaurant and bar that features some local DJs and performances from time to time. If you go a bit further up from Braamfontein (which we know also houses some amazing restaurants and bars), you can enjoy Piza E Vino in Melville, which is an affordable Italian restaurant that has a range of delicious meals on offer.
If you’d love to take on the night with some dancing, you can simply e-hail your way to Maboneng (guaranteed to cost less) and visit Cosmopolitan club or the famous Rooftop Maboneng club. Here there have been some of Mzansi’s most talented artists performing, from the likes of AKA to Maphorisa. Who doesn’t want to rub shoulders with Joburgers at this point?
