Great Bar to have a crazy night out with friends. Go on a Thursday night if you can - they often have parties then. Famous for their Hot Dogs washed down with copious amounts of Tequila.

Great Dane has such an awesome vibe. It's a great spot to go for drinks. Situated in Braamfontein opposite Neighbourgoods the location could not be better. All drinks are reasonably priced. The winner for me is the outdoor courtyard at the back. Great spot to chill with friends.

Great bar to go check out. Especially after you have been across the road at Neighbourgoods market. Prices are decent and the food is good. Nice crowd and great music.

Floor is covered in copper coins, looks amazing. Hilarious lampshades outside, DJ booth is made from businessman's briefcase, never knew there were so many dart board manufactures as artsy display on... More

This venue is awesome, different and unique. The Great Dane in Braamfontein brings back memories of the old Johannesburg, when you could go out and guarantee yourself a good night of food and partying.
