The Maboneng Precinct is a re-imagined version of a town that had gone through a bit of a slum. Perpetuity, 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 and drink and parties!
Perpetuity 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.
