At the contemporary landmark development Keyes Art Mile (corner Keyes Avenue and Jellicoe Avenue) there's a street party atmosphere with a section of the road closed off to traffic so that food trucks, pop-up bars and a small stage for live performances can be set up on the street. Meanwhile a few blocks down Jan Smuts Avenue on Joburg’s Art Gallery Row, drop by for exhibition launches and artist walkabouts at leading galleries such as Gallery2, Lizamore & Associates and David Krut Projects and hang out at one of the bars and restaurants clustered around Bolton Corner such as Coalition, Saigon Suzy or Bolton Road Collection.
