Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Johannesburg

I Love Cup Cake
The name says it all here, where cupcake culture abounds and calories aren't there to be counted.
Nu Metro
Square-eyed movie buffs are catered for here with Hollywood blockbusters and other mainstream films always showing.
The Birdcage
A deli-style café doesn't have to be run-of-the-mill, as The Birdcage proves with its eclectic décor and belt-busting menu.
Rose Boys
Take a walk on the wild side at Rose Boys, described by its owner as a nice little hole in the wall.
Cinema Nouveau
Local films aren't ignored in this cinema chain, which fosters South African film and plays host to occasional film festivals.
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.
Chocodore
Chocoholics congregate at Chocodore, where a love of the brown stuff is positively encouraged.
Col’Cacchio
If you're a pizza fan you'll be hard pressed to find a better joint than Col'Cacchio. It's totally awesome, dude.
Ster Kinekor
With 3D screens you'll be able to see the latest James Cameron blockbuster in all its glory at this cinema chain.
12 Decades
12 rooms matched to 12 decades of art history - sleep in an art installation at this designer hotel.
Ilali
This petite boutique guesthouse is like the ultimate first date: utterly desirable, ridiculously affordable, and, most importantly, quick to put you at ease.
Mall of Rosebank
As well as showcasing South African brands, the mall also houses a weekly rooftop flea market and an art house cinema.
