Called The Trumpet building, Keyes Art Mile's landmark building is an impressive contemporary space focused around local art and design galleries and showrooms. The vast atrium here is curated as a gallery space and often hosts pop-up exhibitions. It's also where you'll find Studio Nxumalo, an independent gallery showing some of Joburg's edgiest artists. It's also the home of First Thursdays, a gallery night at the start of each month.
Upstairs there's a cluster of slick restaurants and bars, while chic design stores, cafés and the Bkhz Gallery open out onto a street flanked by wild olive trees.
Neighbouring the Trumpet building, at the landmark Circa and Everard Read gallery impressive temporary exhibitions by leading South African artists await.
One floor up is Mesh Club, a sexy members-only club with its own chic cocktail bar, Mix Bar that is open to the public. A gorgeous artistic space filled with an impressive collection of contemporary art, Mix also offers superb views over the suburbs and is a fabulous place to enjoy sundowners. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights are themed event nights with everything from jazz to DJ sets on offer (see our events calendar for details). Finally, one floor beyond on the rooftop is the hidden Asian restaurant Momo Kuro, and David Higgs' ultra-swanky rooftop Marble grill restaurant.
Take a walk through the parking lot, and you'll see a staircase leading to Joburg's favourite 24-hangout, The Pantry where pizza, soft serve and bubbly are all available any time of day or night.
