Chill at The National


I always hear complaints that there’s nothing to do in JHB. This actually amuses me because we’re definitely a city of lifestyle and culture… There’s so much to do.

You can’t expect to see different people and have new experiences, if you do the same things. Step out of your comfort zone.

My homie Ningi is much like me in the sense that we like to party and we enjoy the quaint bars where you can have a drink and long conversations.

He put me onto The National in Parktown North this weekend. The area has a rich dining history and I’m so happy to have ‘discovered’ this spot now.

Beautiful space, friendly staff, well priced drinks and good eats. It’s not the place to go if you’d like to be ‘seen’. Great place to go on a date, drinks with the boys/girls just to catch up and even a solo dine if that’s your thing.
