If your budget is straining to keep pace with your lifestyle, take advantage of one of these regular happy hours and half-price specials.

Half-price pizzas at The Radium Beerhall
Although the area surrounding this characterful Victorian pub in Orange Grove may be edgy (not in a good way), it's well worth the effort. Opened in 1929 as a tea room and secret shebeen, the Radium's timeworn interiors, eclectic decor and faithful regulars propping up the bar are all part of the charm.
Happy Hour: Half-price pizzas every Tuesday.

Half price sushi at Huamin
A nondescript little sushi bar, Chinese restaurant and takeaway joint in Emmarentia, that has a loyal local following who come for the bargain prices and quick and easy Chinese food.
Happy Hour: Half-price sushi on Mondays (sit-in only).

Movie meal deals at The Bioscope
Joburg's only independent cinema devoted to bringing the latest in arthouse, indie, documentary and foreign films to the South African big screen. Especially recommended for African films. This boutique cinema has only 62 seats so booking ahead is highly recommended.

Happy hour at The Troyeville Hotel
Enjoy tasty and unfussy Portuguese cuisine with a Mozambican influence at this authentic little neighbourhood hotel in Troyeville. The bar attracts a regular crowd, especially when there's a rugby game on, and also has a lot of cred with left-leaning activists, artists and musicians.
Happy Hour: Daily (except Saturdays) discount on food and drinks from 16:00–18:00.

2-for-1 cocktails at Six Cocktail Bar
One of the oldest bars on Melville's famous 7th Street and still going strong after all these years, this cocktail bar, popular with students, has plenty of atmosphere and runs like clockwork. A veritable Melville institution.
