“So very worth it”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Arts on Main is a very special place, several Art Galleries have exhibitions there and you can always be sure to find extra ordinary pieces of Art.
Wander around the artwork and look at different boutiques which all have clothes from local designers, so much to see.
End it with lunch at the Canteen@Arts on Main, their food is delicious, the wine selection good and you sit under the Olive trees and all of this in downtown Johannesburg.

Highly recommended.

We love Arts on Main for its great atmosphere, interesting and original shopping and arts. Lunch any day under the olive trees is a plus! Highly recommend a visit.

“Must do in Joburg”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

An absolutely great place to spend your Sunday. Lots of food options from different cultures and you can view some art while you're at it. And they play salsa/latin music outdoors so you can bust a move or two;). Definitely a fun and lively event! Not sure why it's not ranked as high in the 'to do' list.

“Great downtown venue for a Sunday”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Great for browsing and people watching. This is THE Sunday thing to do in Johannesburg. It is mostly about food and drinks and eating while standing around or squatting in the corners. There is however also a restaurant which looks nice with outdoor seating and good looking food. After lunch and a browse, people converge to the roof bar where salsa is played and people are dancing in the afternoon sun. I quite enjoyed sitting there while getting slightly tipsy. It closes quite early around 4pm so try to get there early.
