24 Hours In… Johannesburg.
5:00pm, Sunset On Melville’s 7th Street – Melville is Joburg’s wackiest suburb, its main drag attracting a diverse mix of artists, journalists, tourists and students from all over the world. 7th Street is known for its overflowing second-hand shops, its quirky used bookstore, and its ever-changing line-up of restaurants and bars. For happy hour and snacks, try Hell’s Kitchen, a rock-’n’-roll bar with its own brand of cinnamon-infused whiskey, or Mootee Bar, which serves avant-garde cocktails inspired by muti, or traditional African medicine. (Note: Melville has more B&Bs than any other suburb and is a quick ride from both downtown and the northern suburbs, making it the perfect place to sleep in Joburg.) [Photo: Heather Mason]
