One of the most exciting places to visit in Johannesburg, Maboneng is a revitalised portion of Johannesburg’s inner city, said to be a neighbourhood celebrated through art. It has been called “South Africa’s answer to Williamsburg, Brooklyn” by American Vogue. Beginning at Fox Street Arts on Main, Maboneng has grown to include creative spaces, art galleries, businesses, housing, retail stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues.
The Maboneng Directory lists stores, restaurants and businesses. From the Tapas bars to laundry lounges to specialty grocers, Maboneng has an interesting and diverse menu of places to explore, eat at, and experience.
A chock-full online calendar of upcoming events allows residents and tourists alike to see what’s happening in and around Maboneng. Film screenings, comedy nights, cycling groups, Jazz sessions, and more are all listed for anyone to peruse and pick their favourite.
Market on Main is a weekly market, happening every Sunday from 10am to 3pm at 264 Fox Street, Johannesburg. Local designs and food are on offer with a focus on encouraging inner city lifestyle.
The Maboneng Precinct has become one of the best tourist attractions, and a fun place to visit in Johannesburg, and is well worth a visit.
