THERE’S a new edi­tion to the vi­brant ur­ban cul­ture of Jo­han­nes­burg.

As the city con­tin­ues to evolve into a hub for all things life­style, new venue Joz­iburg at No. 1 Eloff is adding to the mix with a se­lec­tion of food, ex­hi­bi­tions and rooftop par­ties.

From next week, people will be able to call the down­town yel­low and blue block the place to be.

The venue is also a space for street trader style stores – Bag Al­ley where en­trepreneurs are given a plat­form to understand the re­tail mar­ket.

There are also of­fice spa­ces to let. Art and mu­sic lovers will be in for a cul­tural ex­plo­sion when The Kolek­tiv Pop Up Gallery starts host­ing talks and the first of the Film Noire screen­ings start to show.

People can look for­ward to Si­fiso Khany­ile’s June 16 doc­u­men­tary Uprize as the first screen­ing.

Satur­days are al­ways filled with events and Joz­iburg will be no dif­fer­ent, host­ing a monthly day rooftop event The Feel Good Ses­sions.

Next Satur­day will see Melo B Jones per­form along­side DJs 1D, Bub­bles the DJ, Doda and more.

On July 30, The Bub­blegum Club will host a weekly New Sound Night for art and mu­sic lovers where up­com­ing artists will show­case their mu­sic.

There’s also an­other venue in the works that prom­ises to bring back the nos­tal­gia of yes­ter­year and cel­e­brate artists that changed the face of mu­sic in South Africa.

The gallery will see cre­atives from the fash­ion, art and de­sign space col­lab­o­rate and host ex­hi­bi­tions.

Ev­ery last Thurs­day of the month, a new col­lab­o­ra­tion will be hosted.
