It’s all about life in the city – as we know, so we caught up with uber talented actress, model, DJ and presenter, Thuli Phongolo to find out more about her favourite spots around the city…
What is your favourite restaurant in Joburg?
The Terrace at the Saxon Hotel… it’s absolutely stunning! Every time I go there I forget that I’m in Joburg. It has a sense of calm that you don’t usually gather from the city. I also love the fact that its private. It makes it easier to engage with your guests and relax.
What is your favourite coffee spot in Joburg?
I’ve recently fallen in love with Naked at Morningside. They have quite a variety of coffee with an exquisite taste. Its unlike any other coffee I’ve ever tasted, coffee is no longer the same without that Naked touch!
What is your favourite hotel in Joburg?
The Four Seasons, Westcliff… the view is to die for! It’s tranquil and mesmerising! The hotel definitely has a dream feel to it. I also like that it’s structured in a way that makes you feel like you are in your own luxurious apartment as opposed to a typical hotel feel. Not forgetting the remarkable service, they pay serious attention to detail.
What is your favourite nightlife spot in Joburg?
I don’t really have a favourite nightlife spot but I enjoy the decks like San deck or Southern Sun in Hyde park. I try not to go to the hectic spots because being a DJ exposes me to constant night life vibes so in my spare time I like to go to the chilled, relaxing spots in the city.
What is your go-to breakfast place in Joburg?
Woolworths cafes are my favorite for breakfast. The quality of food is exquisite! it also provides a homemade touch to the food because their ingredients I’d usually use at home. Their freshly squeezed juices are delicious, a must try!
