Cocktail Bar in Johannesburg

It's best to make a reservation for this unsigned speakeasy-style cocktail bar as it's a pretty intimate place. Pull up a seat at the bar and the friendly mixologists – all hipster beards and tattoos – will enthuse about their latest seasonal concoctions. Or you could just stick with the classics.

If you're peckish you can order in some pizza from neighbouring Coalition Pizza. Look for the door attendant standing in the alley beneath the elephant head painted on the wall.
