They gathered to experience Johannesburg inner-city at night: A secret underground dinner at an unknown venue accessible only by Uber…
In the vault of an ancient bank, white clad tables were hugged between forgotten, locked safety deposit boxes.
Mixologists served herbaceous gin and tonic by candle light below the dark pavement. During a brief walk about on Gandhi Square, historic facts about the ‘city of gold’ were shared.
Then the city dwellers descended back into the world of wonder below ground. The JoburgPlaces host, Gerald Garner, welcomed everyone, a poignant poem was orated by an African goddess and fragrant, delectable dishes followed.
Later on a buffet of sweet dreams lulled diners into temptation and the conversations circled around dining and the regeneration of the inner-city.
Much later, under the dark moon sky, they returned back to their four respective corners of Joburg.
They explored, they savoured and they loved it…
