Rosebank

As quoted by London's 'Daily Telegraph': "Rosebank, quite the best of Jo'burg's Northern suburbs, I mean the old green ones, not the brash new ones. Wooded, walkable, rich in restaurants, clubs and cinemas, Rosebank has that characteristic Jo'burg blend of chic and seedy; curio sellers, sushi bars, buskers..."

Newtown

What do you feel like doing in Newtown today? How about a thought provoking drama or light hearted comedy at the world famous Market Theatre? There is always a new exhibition on at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre to complement the permanent, interactive displays enjoyed by both children and adults alike. Museum Africa is another icon of Newtown, with permanent displays covering the "Rivonia Trials" and photographs from a time of peaceful protest, along with a range of South African History. Getting a little too serious? Let's go to Bassline and dance the night away! Live bands and DJ's perform here regularly. And if you're not in the mood to dance yourself, watch the talented performers from the Dance Factory until you feel inspired enough to head next door to
Moving into Dance and take a dance class or two or of your own.
