Hyde Park Bar
Set high above Hyde Park Shopping centre in the Southern Sun hotel, the Hyde Park Hotel bar is a brilliant place to prop up and admire the setting sun from afar. Complete with a large lounge area and dedicated cigar bar, it’s no wonder hotel guests spend more time here than they do in their rooms. The bar overlooks the pool, too, meaning you can take your drink outside, settle yourself on a sunlounger and observe the toned bodies soaking up the rays or cooling off in the turquoise water. The bar itself offers a heavenly selection of whisky to savour, taste or simply shoot, and a number of rarer spirits that are otherwise hard to find in Jo’burg. The hotel’s Italian restaurant, Bice Ristorante, finishes things off nicely before bed.
