Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Johannesburg

Gin
Gin may be a mother's ruin, but that's what makes this gorgeous bar such a hit with trendy young locals looking to flirt with danger.
Taboo
The local 'it' crowd love getting up to no good inside Taboo, which is all about sleek interiors and a sweeping view out over Sandton.
The Grand
With dinner included in the entrance fee, this chic strip club is more class than crass.
Rose Boys
Take a walk on the wild side at Rose Boys, described by its owner as a nice little hole in the wall.
Truth
The funky layout and constant pumping of electro beats will keep you more than occupied at this underground superclub. The Truth hurts, as they say.
Latinova
Seeking a Latin lover? Then head to Latinova, where you can sidle up against sweaty bodies to the beat of sexy salsa.
Nicci Beach
Not to be confused with Nikki Beach, Nicci Beach is all about beach chic with live music and a wave pool.
The Bassline
... And all that jazz. The Bassline prides itself on showcasing South Africa's best musical talent, and doesn't disappoint.
Metro Cafe & Bar
Elegance exudes from every chandelier in this deeply decadent lounge...
Tokyo Star
For something slightly different head to this anime-inspired bar, with more cool credentials than you can shake a comic strip at.
Movida
Moulin Rouge-inspired theatre-cum-club-cum-cocktail bar, Movida has so many things going for it it's hard to know where to start.
Katzy’s
Swish and sophisticated, Katzy's offers the best jazz in Jo'burg as well as an array of fine whiskeys to keep your thirst well and truly quenched...
Fashion TV Café
Fashion is more than passion here where models outnumber mere mortals and the dance floor is used to burn off any calories consumed during dinner.
E.S.P
E.S.P. plays host to world-famous dance DJs and trance acts only once a week, but that's all it needs to bring the house down.
Hush
The only thing more stylish than this club is the clientele, which would make any mere mortal feel hopelessly inadequate. And quite rightly so.
Manhattan Club
The bigger the better, apparently - and that's no more true than at The Manhattan Club, the largest dance venue in Sandton.
Interview with Killer Robot’s Bruno Morphet
Keith Bain catches up with Bruno Morphet of Techno duo Killer Robot.
