Top 3 Places to Party in Johannesburg

If you are a night hawk, there is an eternity to unwind. Booze, dancing and people watching can best be practiced while enjoying the nightlife in Johannesburg. So check out the top 3 places to party in Johannesburg:

1. Melville

The 7th avenue in Melville is the most popular district to party in Johannesburg. Countless cafes engage you in the daytime plenteous nightclubs and bars keep you on the go after dark. Relentless bohemian crowds and student partiers fill up the streets to capacity from sundown to sunup. The area is insanely hard-core, not exactly suitable for the faint-hearted. Buzz 9, a bar with a faddish industrial-style interior is awarded the best in town for its vast cocktail selection. Café Mexicho entails exquisite spicy Mexican coupled with abundant frozen cocktails and tequila.

2. Newtown

As the name suggests, Newtown denotes the resurrected part of the city. It is a fairly large neighborhood housing three theaters and two art galleries. Besides the cliché clubbing in Johannesburg, you can indulge in one of the many events, maybe a DJ hosted party or an art exhibition that lingers on till some late night grooving. Lemon 8, for instance, is one such offbeat experience for laid-back partiers. Kippies International, an old-school jazz club hosts a lot of jazz pilgrims, though much of its charm has been overshadowed by Bassline.

3. Fourways

Boasting a large number of entertainment options, this district in Johannesburg hosts an infinity Mall, the Fourways Crossing and Montecasino. Montecasino particularly is a premium leisure complex for the high rollers. Café Vacca Matta and @Monte are great options for bacchanals seeking some splurge. Beerhouse Fourways has the greatest selection of Crafts Beer in the city. Besides, its close proximity to the adventure spots in Joburg makes it a favored district for thrill seekers.

From Shebeens and Pubs to swanky cocktail lounges and danceclubs, the city has it all to spawn you into one of its Joburg Jollers (Joburg’s party animals). Besides all this, the Annual Christmas Lights Festival is phenomenal in Johannesburg. The entire city turns into a party stage with unbending merry making. However, nightlife and security are not entirely synonymous here. It is better to be safe than sorry.
