Sin + Tax 

Sin + Tax is Jozi’s best kept secret and a hidden gem for those dining out in Rosebank – purely because not many people know it exists. Tucked away behind Coalition pizzeria, Sin + Tax serves some of the most delicious cocktails in town. The space is incredibly small and intimate and the lighting is dark but their drinks menu changes from season to season. Some of the cocktails you can look forward to sipping on is the Paintbrush, featuring Inverroche Amber, grapefruit juice, MCC and thyme and the classic Negroni. Get there early to avoid being locked out, as the venue can only accommodate a limited number of people. Follow them on Instagram
