  I’ve been raving about the new Exclusive Books in Hyde Park for a while now, but only yesterday did I eat in their new restaurant, The Social Kitchen and Bar. I was put off initially. The queue was long and we were told there would be a wait of 45 minutes. We decided to…

A perfectly indulgent Johannesburg day!

A perfectly indulgent Johannesburg day!

Posted on: July 17, 2015| By: admin

I thought it would be a nice idea to write about what we think is a perfectly indulgent Johannesburg day. Try this for a birthday or special celebration. Wake up, stretch, and have someone bring you coffee in bed. Preferably your Johannesburg Guesthouse staff, but your partner would also be okay! Sip, roll over, sleep…
