Hidden in a cosy nook in the L'Corro Shopping Centre in Northcliff, Dandelion Cocktail Bar is a gem for cocktail purists and those looking to enjoy the city with a drink in hand.

Go no further than the Dandelion Cocktail Bar for great service, awesome vibes and delicious cocktails. The upmarket venue, which is tucked away in the well-established hills of the wealthy and exclusive residential suburb of Northcliff, has earned a flawless 5,0 rating on Google Reviews, with satisfied patrons beaming about the attentive service, cosy atmosphere and knowledgeable staff.

Allow Dandelion’s one-of-a-kind creations to linger on the palate and the mind, with flavours from enigmatic and free-spirited mixes that are a cut above your average bar fare. “Incredible quality cocktails,” writes Google local guide, Reece May, a claim which is corroborated by Natasha Vermuelen’s “Absolutely fabulous!!!!” review.

Taste classic to one-of-a-kind cocktails

Bespoke cocktails are the name of the game. Try a range of amazingly crafted cocktails from their menu. From a sophisticated G&T to more complex mixes, below are a few must-tries:

An Italian Aperol Spritz is the perfect cocktail all year round with simple ingredients that refresh the palate.

For fruit and tequila lovers, the Spicy Mango Margarita will go down well. For more of a kick, The Rum Runner has hazelnut, pineapple and hibiscus. The Rum Runner is also a favourite with Dandelion’s patrons. Or attempt the Harvest Moon Applejack Cocktail, which is made with apple brandy, almond syrup (orgeat) and lemon juice. The options are limitless, and for mixology enthusiasts, the menu is exciting.

Sip on The Penicillin Cocktail, a whiskey sour twist that mixes Scotch whiskey, ginger syrup and honey. For more adventure, try the Plum and Thyme Prosecco Smash. How divine does that all sound?

Classy gin lovers can enjoy an Elderberry Gin Smash. For those with a sweet tooth, try the HazelNut Chocolate Martini, it is a superb dessert type of cocktail to end off the evening.

Travel through suburban bliss

Put your vehicle into the lower gears and ascend the winding, quartzite, tree-lined hills of Northcliff Ridge to appreciate the golden vistas of Johannesburg’s Central Business District on one side, and the dream city’s leafy northern suburbs on the other. Appreciate the difference of a suburb that is distinct from others, which function mainly on grid systems.

Take in the security and exclusivity of Johannesburg’s second-highest point behind Observatory Ridge: a true landmark on the city’s otherwise predominantly flat skyline. On a clear day, one can see as far as Sandton and beyond.

Then careen down Weltevreden Road to the well-known shopping centre that is L’ Corro, which is easily located at number 128. Slot into the ample parking then court some sophistication at Dandelion Cocktail Bar.
