We thought, for a change, we'd introduce you to some places that are not in Cape Town. Johannesburg, oft overlooked as the ugly duckling to her sexier sista - Cape Town , is infact at the forefront of really cutting edge and exciting innercity development.
With phenomenal locations and great weather in winter it is a destination that should not be discounted. The Maboneng Precinct, on the East side of the Johannesburg CBD is one such innercity development. It is home to several independent retail, restaurants and entertainment venues as well as loft apartments, offices, hotel, a museum and creative factory spaces in a connected urban environment. Developed partly out of the decay and desolation of old abandoned buildings in an area of urban squalor, the rebirth of this area speaks volumes about the optimism of a young South Africa and the wealth of extraordinary talent to be found here. The juxtaposition of old and new, Industrial and more traditional architectural styles also creates very visually exciting spaces for filmic exploitation.
Maboneng provides multiple platforms to engage with arts and culture across the entire neighbourhood. The events calender boasts stand up comedy, cabaret as well as more traditional theatre, installation art happenings and on and on. With over 20 exciting independent eateries, Maboneng has also established itself as a culinary destination. The range of picturesque settings, from rooftop gardens to greened courtyards and sidewalk cafes, and the diversity of meal offerings create fab dining experiences throughout the neighbourhood.
African Asian fusion, craft beer and pizza, eco rooftop venues, A vodka Bar, Artisan spirits distillery or even just laze at the innercity pool and soak up a bit of sun. Doesn’t sound too shabby really and in fact whats so great about areas such as these is that they herald the Renaissance of a new age Southern Africa. A place where extraordinary cultural diversity meets youth, optimism and talent and where something new and fresh can grow from the ashes of a difficult and disturbing past.
