Dining in Style
Let’s start off with the greasiest, sexiest and most tasty burger, shall we? Okay, you will know where we heading with this one… on Keyes Avenue, there’s a little burger joint serving burgers, chips and frozen custard. They’re called BGR and they are awesome – even when the place is filled with hipsters. No matter what you’re after, it’s in Rosebank… oh, and there’s Marble! It’s the best place on earth if you dig upper-class fancy food – but who doesn’t, right? And if you need to get a caffeine fix, Father Coffee is worth trying out. They offer some of the best coffee in Joburg. A good place to check out for some cool food places to satisfy that sweet tooth would be The Zone @ Rosebank. Here, you can get ice cold velvet in the form of Paul’s Home Made Ice Cream (chocolate, nutella and oreo for the win) as well as the best gourmet popcorn at Maverick and Jane (we recommend the drool worthy birthday cake popcorn) and Plan B Dessertery has delightful bubble waffles (the lemon meringue waffles are on point).
The Rosebank precinct is built on one word: culture. It hosts two of the most important galleries in the country, the Goodman Gallery on the corner of Jan Smuts and Chester Road and the Everard Read Gallery on Jellicoe Avenue. Some of the most prominent art dealers and agencies are situated in Rosebank. It is a space where the dealer and the buyer can meet in close proximity of one another.
Shopping up a Storm
If you want to shop ’til you drop, you’ll be in good company at Rosebank. This lucrative city offers three of the best shopping centres in Gauteng. These are The Zone @ Rosebank, Rosebank Mall and The Firs. These shopping malls have a wide array of stores to meet the needs of every fashionista, home owner, foodie and tech lover. There are also loads of local clothing designers as well as talented arts and crafts creators and vendors at the Rosebank Sunday Market.
Joburg Sight Seeing
A great way to explore the best Joburg has to offer is with the City Sightseeing bus. This bright red bus offers tours that will take you to some of the most interesting places around our city like Constitution Hill, the Apartheid Museum and Carlton Centre. They offer various packages to suit your budget and time limits. Their offices are located at The Zone @ Rosebank, conveniently situated close to all Joburg’s attractions.
Spend the Night
If you’re planning on staying over in Rosebank, why not do so in style at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Oxford Road. This hotel boasts 244 rooms and suites with all the amenities a jet-lagged patron could dream of. The hotel also has a swimming pool, spa, fitness center and laundry service, not to mention their luxury in house restaurant, oneNINEone.
