Explore Johannesburg with Lordkez

The energy in Johannesburg is unlike no other. As South Africa’s biggest city and the cultural and economic capital of Africa it draws everyone from hustlers and movers and shakers to tree huggers (it has the world’s largest urban forest).


South African singer Lordkez describes Johannesburg is a very vibrant city, with a lot of different things to do. She grew up in rural South Africa which inspired her spirituality which heavily influences her artistic process and has now made a home in the capital. She shares her favourite things to do in the city.

44 on Stanley

This is a collection of shops, restaurants and galleries all in one space in Johannesburg. My favorite spot to go to when I am there is called "Peachy" they have incredible "Asianesque Wings" that you need to try out. They also have live music which is always great, especially when it is Jazz!

The Marabi Jazz Club

This is one of the best places I have been to in Johannesburg. The food is incredible, the music is so nice and the overall aesthetic of the place is amazing, in fact, I shot some scenes for my music video "Sunday" in the venue. When you go there you need to ask for Katlego Mlambo, he is the head chef - award winning type of guy.

Neighbour Goods Market

This is a really cool place to go chill on a Saturday afternoon, it is a food and drink market that happens in the city, great views, good music and tasty food is always a good combination.

Botanical Gardens Emmarentia

My favorite part about these gardens is the river with the fish, I like feeding the fish, it is so peaceful and green. Oh, they also have ducks and ducks are really cute. Sometimes, you just need to sit under a tree and breathe in fresh air with your shoes off, this is the perfect place for this.

Bioscope in Braamfontein

This is an old school cinema based in Braamfontein, which is near Johannesburg city centre. They showcase indie films there, both local and international. It's really great to spend an evening watching indie films and eating popcorn, I feel so vintage when I do that.

27 Boxes in Melville

This place is really cool, it is a lifestyle centre made up of over 100 empty shipping containers filled with different fashion and retail stores, there are also some really cool coffee shops with great donuts, they sometimes have live music too, if you watching live music you need a glass of wine. South Africa has the best wine.

The Hallmark House Rooftop

This rooftop is on the 15th Floor of a designer hotel in the middle of Johannesburg City Centre, the views of the city are incredible and the sunsets are even better. If you ever find yourself in this beautiful venue you have to try the Oysters, they are unbelievable.
