Where To Eat

Founders Grill

Hey, Joburg, you owe the West Rand a high five. The original Founders Restaurant and Grill was established in 1984 in Florida North and has since grown into one of the country's favourite old-school steakhouses. Today you can get your rump on, enjoy good pork ribs and hang out with family and friends in a comfortable environment at the top of Gordon Road. Though the Cresta branch closed its doors a couple years back, the original is still open for business!



Hidden in between Ruimsig and Honeydew, Ramkiki acts as a little escape from the rest of the world. This lodge is a prime wedding and events venue, as well as a great place to have a couple of drinks and something to eat. The vibe is very laid back, with friendly service, and they also host interesting events every now and then, such as cocktail evenings and food-truck days. Food includes the usual suspects – platters, steaks, ribs... you know, good old South African food!


Tony's Spaghetti & Grill

Beautiful gnocchi, homemade pizza bases and sangrias fit for any day of the week. That’s Tony’s Spaghetti in a nutshell. Do yourself a favour and wait for a sunny afternoon, book a table on the terrace and go enjoy the super-relaxed atmosphere, awesome staff and prices fit for a journalist.


Where To Sleep

The Rabbit Hole Hotel

Feel like taking a trip to Wonderland? Then follow Alice to the Rabbit Hole Hotel on Viljoen Street. Enjoy excellent food in a charmingly surreal setting where colourful design combined with attention to the functional requirements of visitors are met without even breaking a sweat. Each room is decorated in a different theme and explodes with vibrancy and quirkiness. The Rabbit Hole Restaurant is a popular spot for diners to relax, kick back and have a beautiful bite to eat. Patrons can expect big burgers, massive slices of cake, mojitos that kick like a mule and the best BBQ chicken wings this side of Joburg.


Where To Shop

Food Lover's Market

Nothing comes close to walking into the Food Lover's Market with a fistful of grocery money and an urge to spend every last cent of it. At the FLM at Hillfox Centre on Hendrik Potgieter Road you can expect the usual fresh produce with an added bonus: the cheese section. Oh my waistline! The cheese section is where all great dishes are born. From a mature cheddar to something more robust, like an aged parmesan (read that in your best Massimo Bottura voice), this rendition of the friendly green grocer has got you covered. The shop often runs specials on fruit, veg and cheese, so keep an eye on the papers.


Clearwater Mall

With 225 stores, 27 restaurants and over 5 200 parking spaces, Clearwater Mall is to the west what Sandton City is to the north. Here you will find top-of-the-line retail stores (such as an iStore, Edgars, Guess, etc.), as well as a top-notch entertainment area complete with a 3D theatre complex. There's also a dedicated kids' play area with supervision over weekends. It's the perfect place to shop, meet up with friends or do some serious people watching (hey, there's nothing wrong with that!). Clearwater Mall is a great place to visit during summer, as the roof over the main food court can be opened to let the sun shine in.


Key West Shopping Centre

Once just a flea market by the dam, Key West Shopping Centre has evolved into one of the top shopping and entertainment destinations on the West Rand. It boasts great restaurants, major retail stores and even a free concrete skate park. There’s ample parking, a big Spur and some cool spots to chill along the banks of the dam.


Where To Hang Out

Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens

This West Rand location is by far the most stunning place to have a picnic, go on a hike or take a leisurely stroll through the verdant vegetation. Known as the ‘Rocky Highveld Grassland,’ the area consists of a mosaic of grassland and savanna with dense bush in kloofs and along streams, and it is home to over 600 naturally occurring plant species. It's also a prime setting to do some bird watching, as the indigenous Verreaux's eagle can often be spotted hunting for its chicks in and around the park. On most weekends you're likely to catch some live music being played at the amphitheatre, which adds a lovely, lazy ambience to the experience. There is a cafe that serves the type of food you would expect, and a kiosk that sells drinks and snacks. Note that braaiing – or any fire for that matter – is not allowed. Entrance to the park offers student and pensioner discounts.

Three New Concept Stores Ready And Waiting

Dermalogica concept stores have built a strong following in Gauteng and Cape Town over the last six years. To spread the love to more beauty lovers across the country, they have expanded with three new concept stores in Ballito, Menlyn Mall and Clearwater Mall. Of the three stores that were opened in 2017, Dermalogica Clearwater was newly launched in April, situated in the premier shopping destination in north-west Johannesburg


Dermalogica Clearwater Has Plenty Of Exciting Treatments In Store For You

Just like skin itself, Dermalogica Clearwater has layers of discovery that are exciting for both newcomers and avid fans of the brand. Customers can explore the store or take a seat at the Skin Bar® for a complimentary Face Mapping® skin analysis. Alternatively, experience their prescribed products first-hand in the product pool. Also, why not try out their express 20-minute MicroZone® or 10-minute FaceFit treatments? They're ideal for customers who have a tight budget and little to no time for a pamper session.

All of Dermalogica's core concepts (Face Mapping®, Skin Bar®, MicroZone® and FaceFit treatments) are available at the Clearwater Mall concept store. They also stock the full Dermalogica skincare range.

Cedar Square 

A stone's throw away from Fourways Mall, Cedar Square is a wonderland for the little ones. With downhill skiing, tubing and even snowboarding there's tons to do. On the ground floor, there is a massive play area filled with jungle gyms, soccer pitches and goalie posts and even a restaurant where the little ones can make their own pizzas. To be a kid at Cedar Square is something adults can envy. Speaking of adults, there's a lot of cool shops to check out while the kids do kids stuff. The play area is under supervision, and young adults play with the children and make sure that they do not scrape their knees or bump their heads during play time.

Clearwater Mall

With a dedicated play area right next to the food court, a frozen yoghurt parlour upstairs and a massive 3D cinema, Clearwater Mall is packed with fun stuff to do. Kids can run up and down, and climb and slide their way to happiness. You can keep an eye on the little ones as you enjoy one of the many fine restaurants that litter the massive food court... or maybe send them off to the cinema upstairs with popcorn money. Either way, they are sure in for a great time.

Greenstone Shopping Centre

Kids are super welcome at Greenstone Shopping Centre. With a designated play area, loads of cool gadget stores to check out and a Rush trampoline park... the sky is the limit. Jimmy Jungle's premier indoor adventure park is a must visit for the kiddies as well. There's also a bowling alley and a 3D cinema. The only thing left to do is let the children run wild while you sit back and enjoy a bingo session or a hearty meal at one of the many brilliant restaurants.


Fancy some ice skating? Then head to Northgate and get carving on the ice. The little ones will have a ball as they race up and down the rink and learn a new skill or three. Right across the hall from the ice rink is one of the last decent gaming arcades to hang out at. From table soccer to Time Crisis III can be jammed at the arcade. There is a wide a selection of racing games too. Other than that, there's the cinema equipped with a super cool slushy machine... grape flavored slushy, anyone?

The Piazza is central to the triangle, with access to each of the three malls and is open to the sky with trees and a pavement café atmosphere.
