JO’BURG INSIDER: EMMA FROM EMMA JANE NATION

December 9, 2013

We chatted to one of the coolest bloggers in town – Emma of Emma Jane Nation to find out her favourite spots in Jozi. Here is what she had to say.

THE BEST POOL TO HANG OUT AT: 

The pool at the Southern Sun Hyde Park hotel, or the Zoo Lake swimming pool for a more chilled vibe.

THE BEST PLACE TO HIT FOR COCKTAILS: 

The Office in Greenside. Half price cocktails until 7pm.

THE BEST MARKET TO VISIT: 

Kamers Vol Geskenke in Irene, on until Sunday.

YOUR FAVOURITE ART GALLERY: 

I really love the Nirox Sculpture Park. You have to make an appointment, but it’s a lovely morning/afternoon out in a natural space with sculptures all over the place.

THE PLACE THAT SERVES THE BEST BREAKFAST: 

Nice in Parkhurst. You can’t go wrong with a half and half. (Just order it. Trust me.)

IF YOU EAT OUT ONCE THIS HOLIDAY, YOU HAVE TO MAKE A BOOKING AT:

DW Eleven-13. It’s a bit of splurge, but it’s fine dining at its best.

A DESTINATION WORTH DRIVING TO: 

Tribeca Standard at Lynnwood Bridge in Pretoria for a trendy New York style drinking and dining experience.

IF YOU’RE SEARCHING FOR WI-FI, YOU HAVE TO HIT:

Croft & Co in Parkview. It’s a nice quiet spot to work or check your email over a glass of (really) good wine.

KEEN TO GET OUT INTO NATURE? THEN YOU HAVE TO:

Go mountain bike riding at Rosemary Hill in Pretoria or at The Cradle Of Humankind.

IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF LAST-MINUTE GIFTS, YOU HAVE TO HEAD TO: 

The internet! Online shopping is here, guys. Try In Good Company, Hello Pretty/Man, Zana and Swagger Products for some nice stocking fillers and home accessories.
