We attended a 50th birthday party at Katys. It was our first visit and was a great experience. The decor was unique, the food very good ( not sure about prices as it was a prepaid function). Very trendy.

The place is a bar with a lot of hopeful hunters and willing prey, and a severely limited menu. Its overpriced as can be expected. The metro police trap outside so if you can't resist the flame and the moth in you gets drawn in,...More

Called earlier this morning to make a booking. Just called to ask if they serve dinner but the lady that answered was very abrupt and not helpful at all. Like she did not want to even answer the phone. Will not make a booking there...More

I was at Katy's Palace Bar for a wedding and loved every minute of it. The venue could have competed with the best in London's Shoreditch for decor, and definitely beats them on views. The service throughout was friendly and attentive, the food was great...More

Attended a function at Katy's; my first visit there. Wow, what a treat, very cool venue and awesome service. Location is great, close enough to Sandton area to uber around. Great sunset views and a by popular hangout. Will most certainly be back many times.

This was a highlight for me personally. I loved the decor and atmosphere of Katy's. It's a place where I could come to every week and not get tired of. Lovely experience all around. A gem in Johannesburg

Joined a group of friends in celebrating a 60th birthday here. Looks like this venue can be booked for a dedicated occasion like this. Brilliant venue ... showcasing many items from the past as decor. And it is well done. Great pub right there inside...More

I attended a business function and it was perfect, from the views over Sandton, to the food and drinks served from the stunning bar. Awesome decor, look and feel. The large fireplace added a nice touch. Great staff and service.
