Celebrate Christmas At Joziburg Lane This Year!

Spending the festive season in the city this year and not sure how to celebrate? Look no further! Gather your family and friends and head to the Joziburg Lane for a wonderful lineup of entertainment, food, and fun that’ll get you into the festive spirit. 

While nothing beats a braai with friends and family at home, sharing each other’s company in astonishing city spaces and places is just as special and exciting. Joziburg Lane is just that place and it has plenty to offer visitors this summer.

Joziburg Lane Is Your City Foodie Destination

Joziburg Lane’s food hall and tasting bar is the ideal spot to lounge and indulge in the city. It’s open Tuesday to Saturday each week, and ready to serve delectable local street food with an innovative twist – as well as the best locally-produced, small-batch craft drinks from beer and wine to gins and cocktails.

The food hall is the perfect fusion between a sit-down restaurant and a food market. With seating for over 240 people, guests can sit down, rather than stand, while eating – as is the case so often at food markets. It offers a much smaller selection of food than one-day pop-up markets, but a more carefully-curated collection that showcases locally-produced South African-inspired cuisine. More pop-up stalls join the food hall on Fridays and Saturdays.
