Melville Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The trendy suburb of melville is situated just west of Johannesburg central and features a wide variety of nightlife. Situated close to two universities (the University of Johannesburg and University of the Witwatersrand), It is also a meeting point and general hangout for many students. There are trendy restaurants, clubs, pubs and theatre. Be sure to check out The Roxy Rhythm Bar, Cool Runnings, gay nightclub Oh!, as well as a host of smaller places along 7th Street. Catz Pyjamas is an old favourite and is open 24/7. Although illegal, marijuana is for sale on nearly every street corner. Just don't get busted, you don't want to go to a Joburg prison. Also take care driving at night, distances are quite far (20km back to Sandton) and drunk drivers are too common.
