Okay, I guess the first thing we need to do is clear up exactly where Jozi is located. That’s actually a lot easier than it might sound. Jozi is just the local, popular contraction for Johannesburg, the capital of South Africa. As a result, as you can probably imagine, it isn’t that difficult to have a wonderful time in Jozi. While some people may prefer to experience some of the many tourist attractions, others may actually be there for business, focused on getting deals closed and creating new relationships. But there are also those that want to enjoy some of the nightlife that Johannesburg has to offer. The good news is that there are plenty of venues, and a lot of different places to go.
Are You in the Mood for Just a Couple of Drinks?
There is no need to be embarrassed: if you want to go out and have a couple of cocktails, as long as you’re not a minor, you are certainly within your rights to do so. There are obviously hundreds of great bars and cafés spread across Johannesburg. You can practically walk out onto the street in just about any metropolitan part of town and find several excellent choices. What day of the week you go is up to you. Typically, most bars are very quiet Sunday through Tuesday, so if you want to just have a quiet conversation with someone, these are the ideal days to go. However, if you want to participate in a slightly raucous environment, Thursday through Saturday are your nights. If you happen to be in or near Sandton, the News Café is an excellent place to visit, as it also offers several sandwiches and other snacks along with regular drinks.
In the mood for some live music?
There are plenty of live music venues spread out across Johannesburg. It really depends on what type of music you want to listen to. The best resources to find out exactly what type of music is playing and where are the two major Johannesburg newspapers, the Mail and the Guardian. They publish, seven days in advance, a complete list of every live music venue in town, along with who is playing, what type of music and what hours they are open. From there, all you have to do is choose what suits your mood and head out and have a wonderful evening.
Staying Exactly Where You Want
If you are just visiting the Johannesburg area, the area Sandton is a great place to stay. It is one of the most modern neighbourhoods in all Johannesburg and you’ll find a wide variety of attractions within just a few blocks in any direction. If you’re looking for a smoking hotel in Sandton Johannesburg, which is cheap, that too is not a problem. You can enjoy first-class service and luxurious accommodation, ensuring that your stay in Jozi will be one that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Having access to a wide variety of nightlife is an added bonus.
