The Maboneng Precinct is a re-imagined version of a town that had gone through a bit of a slum. Propertuity, a property giant, gentrified an entire precinct, and turned it into what it is today… a hub filled with creative people, a market, fine food, great drinks and awesome parties!
Propertuity also built a range of flats, which are inhabited by trendy people who love living in the heart of Joburg, surrounded by anything and everything they could ever need.
Arts on Main is a weekly market that’s held each Sunday and boasts a range of delicious food vendors, a bar and fabulous clothes and accessories, too. It’s a great outing for friends and families alike. It also has its own restaurant called Canteen.
The Bioscope is an independent cinema that calls Maboneng home. It’s here that art films, documentaries and cult classics are screened on the regular. Plus, you can bring food and drink from its neighbouring restaurant, Chalkboard Cafe, inside with you.

I had high expectations of this place and was a bit disappointed. First of all, it's not really a precinct, it is basically one or two blocks of hyped establishments in the middle of downtown Joburg...
popped up there with local friends, a great discovery for weekend's lunch and coffee. Nice also the area around with plenty of bars and cozy cafes
We went on a Sunday, there is a brilliant atmosphere with a lot of food choices and restaurants. Interesting little shops and fun stuff for sale. Wonderful place to get a quick taste of Johannesburg.
