Rand Club

This historic members-only club was founded in 1887 and the interiors hark back to a by-gone era of British colonial style and fabulously rich mining magnates. Nowadays the club is open to all sexes and races (so long as they obey the smart dress code) and hosts regular non-members events such as theatre performances and concerts. 

Highlights include the well-stocked gun-room, the beautiful entrance hall with an impressive stained glass dome and grand staircase and the exceptional library. The vast mahogany-panelled Main Bar (said to be the longest in Africa) where beer is still served in tankards, is open to the public for lunch, dinner and drinks Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00–20:00.

In the basement of the club (once the billiards room) make sure to visit James Findlay's extraordinary bookshop which specialises in historic collectable books, antique maps and vintage posters.
