*Dress up and come to play!
South African cities embrace a ‘New York state of mind’ when the sun sets, so whether you feel like dancing the night away, taking in some smokey jazz riffs, dining like royalty or watching the passing parade from an alfresco coffee shop, the choice is yours.
And as the AFCON 2013 rounds up this weekend with the final match in Johannesburg, enhance your AFCON finale experience with a night life experience like no other.
Whether your team wins or loses this weekend, gear up, put on your dancing shoes and prepare to dance the night away Jozi style.
South African cities boast globally renowned DJs, who are spinning the decks nightly with the latest international and local house, hip-hop, and R&B hits, and they play in lounges and clubs that are looking forward to welcoming AFCON fans to share the African beat, and infuse their own.
If stepping it up is more your style, classy venues for sundowners are plentiful, with the luxurious five-star hotels taking the lead as gathering spots for the city’s beautiful people, among the favourites being Radisson Blu, the Hilton and Sandton Sun hotels.
Live music bands, meanwhile, playing everything from rock to pop to house, are liberally distributed among the city’s restaurants, clubs and bars. It’s just a matter of checking the daily entertainment schedules.
Vibrant nightlife hubs in Johannesburg are primarily in Sandton, Rosebank, Melville, Newtown and Soweto, with each offering a diverse mix of venues from cocktail bars and clubs to restaurants that serve anything from Jamaican to Japanese cuisine.
So pack for some great evenings out. Your place near the night time beat is waiting.
