Charlie and Gerald's Town Treasure

This restaurant, bar and shop is the newest incarnation (August 2021) of JoburgPlaces HQ. Located in the same building where the tour company formerly operated the Thunder Walker venue and Zwipi Underground, Town Treasure has all the hallmarks of a JoburgPlaces experience – warm hosts Charlie Moyo and Gerald Garner, delicious food, and a unique experience of enjoying a meal in the city. JoburgPlaces city tours also leave from here. 

The doorway is on Fox Street, but Town Treasure located in the historic Somerset House Victorian Arcade is part of the Gandhi Square precinct. If you have previously visited, you'll recognise the amazing historic bank vaults that are part of the building, many of then not opend for decades. 

It's a great part of the city to explore with the Rand Club, Bridge Books, the James Findlay antique books and collectible books, the Joburg Culinary Pastry School and the Africa Rise boutique nearby. 

JoburgPlaces offers urban tours, experiences, explorations and engagements with Johannesburg's inner city, at which they are expert. A restaurant, bar and shop, Town Treasure by JoburgPlaces is open for casual walk-in drinks and food,  as well private dining with booking, and JoburgPlaces exclusive One Table lunch and dinner bookings.

The menu is influenced by this city of migrants, with dishes that bring into focus the diversity of Joburg communities, from Malay curries to Ethiopian influences. 

Please note that opening times are subject to change so always check before visiting.
