Maboneng is one of the most vibrant destinations in Johannesburg and offers many bars, restaurants, retail shops, a cinema, a theater and a few art galleries. If you are the type of person that loves to see the real city, away from the shopping malls and tourist attractions, you will love this.
Please be aware that this is a city location and it does get noisy at night due to the abundance of nightlife. Most places shut down by 11pm but the Maboneng precinct is in town and comes with everything that an inner city location offers.
Johannesburg is a big town and you would need to drive or take a taxi if you would like to access other neighborhoods.
Arts on Main, which houses the Sunday market and several galleries, is Maboneng's best-known attraction. Maboneng is surrounded by some of Joburg's best graffiti and street art. Ask directions to the "Mandela Shadow Boxer" mural, which is 10 minutes' walk from the center of Maboneng.The "Market on Main" weekend market runs from 10am-3pm on Sundays. Although Sunday is the best day to visit the area, most Maboneng businesses are open daily.
