Sundowners are a great time in Johannesburg. The sun still sets fairly early even in the height of summer. At a neighborhood rooftop restaurant or patio, place a drink order, look for a table with a view, and take in one of Joburg’s renowned unforgettable sunsets. Take a look at some Rooftop bars you should visit.


The Roof Fourways & Bryanston 

The Roof is perfect for sundowners. It’s a stylish, contemporary, exclusive and on-trend venue. They cater for year-end functions, weddings, parties, shoots and launches. Both venues are located in clean and safe areas.
