Explore The Joburg Nightlife And Secure A Flat At JHC
In this article, we will take a look at a few ideas behind the Johannesburg nightlife experience.
From Orbit back in the day to Puma Select Shows to the currently popular Feel Good Series, Johannesburg’s nightlife (and we use this word loosely) has the rest of the country’s provinces and cities envious. But what makes it what it is, and what does Johannesburg offer that other cities just sometimes miss? In this article, we will take a look at a few ideas behind the Johannesburg nightlife experience, the spaces those ideas have formed, and where you can secure a home to experience some of the most beautifully curated entertainment experiences ever.
First, The Jozi ‘Nightlife’ Is A Different Experience
Johannesburg hosts a lot of events during the evenings, but some of its most loved shows are found happening during the day or start during the day and drift into the night. The current biggest concert in honour of the late great South African Hip Hop Legend Riky Rick, Cotton Fest (short for Festival), is one such event that showcases this. Starting in the morning around midday, with DJs and performances, the buzz around Cotton Fest can be heard all day. There is also the Feel Good Series we mentioned earlier, which takes place in the beautiful Victoria Yards located in Lorentzville. This show happens from 3 pm till 10 pm with lots of people attending.
There are also nightclubs that Jozi residents swear by. With places such as Kitcheners and Great Dane in Braamfontein, Maboneng Lifestyle Centre, Shakers, and Cosmopolitan in Maboneng, Troyeville Hotel in Troyeville, and lots of places in and around Jeppestown, you can rest assured that you will find your tribe in the city.
Mzansi Talent Is Taken Serious In This City
Because Johannesburg houses a lot of galleries, theatres, and event spaces, it is almost impossible to imagine a night or day where there is no show in Johannesburg. However, much like one would expect the Jozi nightlife to be dominated by acts from other countries, given the many different people who live and visit, African artists are at the core of the entertainment sector in Jozi. Residents and visitors are often treated to local and continental productions, curated to evoke emotions, inspire, entertain and sometimes educate. The Market Theatre, which brings local and continental actors before your eyes, is known for housing the masters at the craft. The Lyric Theatre, which is known for hosting musical shows, is also another pride and joy of the city. Then there are spaces such as the Goodman Gallery, which showcases some beautiful art pieces by local, continental, and international artists.

Final Words, The Best Nightlife Is The Safe Kind
While commuting around Johannesburg at night may be easy, especially with e-hailing services, it is important to note that there are a few instances where that is not the case. Always try to be safe when requesting your ride, share your location with loved ones, do not enter a car that does not look like the one on the app, and always report any suspicious behaviour at the club, event, or your e-hailing car service provider. Remember, your safety comes first.
